    Needs in the community

    January 18, 2020
    This month, one other Bethel member and I attended another Argyle Basic Needs team meeting (occurring about once every 6 weeks). It was yet another meeting in which several needs of our city’s residents were discussed and even agonized over.

    Numbering our days

    January 10, 2020
    The new year has started and it doesn’t seem to take long before seeing things dated with “2020” becomes routine.  The speedy passage of time in yet another year, here we go again!

    Fond memories of a mentor

    November 27, 2019
    This past Friday, Carolyn and I attended the funeral of an early mentor of mine, Pastor Jacob Kuntz. The formative year I spent with him as a student pastor is still a treasured memory. From the moment I arrived, Jacob treated me like a friend and colleague.

    This past Friday was the last official day for Wendy Sibley as our office  administrator here at Bethel Church.  I, and all of us, will miss her and her service among us a great deal.

    The Story Begins!

    September 6, 2019
    Today we are beginning our season long journey through the Bible using THE STORY.  Hopefully, our study will help us to do what the Bible in one way or another frequently encourages us to do, namely to meditate on the word of God. (see Psalms 48, 63, 77, 119, 145 and others).

    Summer Opportunities

    Summertime continues this month, of course, but it sure does seem to be true that if you blink twice, it will be over! 

        Besides, enjoying some vacation weeks and family days, I’ve been able to attend a couple of professional development opportunities this summer.
