Meet our New Intern for 2018-2019:  Hi Bethany! My name is Becca Klemm.   I will be serving as your new DCE Intern for the next year.  I am so excited to start working with everyone. I am originally from Indianapolis, IN and just finished my course work at Concordia  University Chicago. I am and will always be a die-hard Cubs fan, but baseball of any kind is good for me. I love drinking coffee and trying new coffee shops and restaurants. Let’s grab a cup and get to know each other! For the next year, I will be working with the children’s ministry at Bethany. I cannot wait to meet everyone and see the amazing work that God has planned for this next year.  I’ll see you in June!

Thank you to the High School Youth who volunteered to help with this Sunday morning service to our congregation. The schedule was sent by email to the participants and is posted in three additional places on campus: in the Youth Room and on the Coffee & Donuts Cabinet in the kitchen.  A reminder postcard will be mailed to you the month prior to your scheduled Sunday. This is a great way to earn funds into your youth account for use in going on retreats, gatherings, and mission trips as well as other high school youth events.  *If you are interested in helping with this Sunday morning fellowship time, please contact Aimee Coleman at
