Children of Bethlehem

The new sign proclaiming the ministers raised up by Bethlehem is complete and hanging in the fellowship hall. Thank you to both Johnna Voto and Gary Koch for helping us recognize the diversity of the ministry.

Gather Bible Study, Circle July 11th, 12:30p

Contact: Marlys Hogg
 The book of Esther is one of the latest writings of the Old Testament, perhaps written to inspire Jews who had been scattered in the diaspora. The narrative takes place in the court of the King of Persia, King Ahasuerus. Some think that it was written to explain and establish the Jewish festival of Purim.

This three session-study is brought to us by Kay Ward, a bishop of the Moravian Church who lives at Marquardt Manor, a Moravian retirement community in Watertown, Wisconsin. She continues to serve in ministry as a pastor to pastors and intercessor for the church. Before retiring from the staff of Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, she served in team ministry with her husband, Aden. Kay was the first woman to be elected a bishop in the 541 years of the Moravian Church (the Unitas Fratrum).

Help Lead Worship

Contact: Pr Jean -
Having the sign-up sheets for worship hanging in the narthex does not seem to be working well, as you can see in Worship Leader’s Schedule for June. Inviting people to volunteer for specific roles on specific dates has worked for the 10:30 am service in the past. As an added bonus, it gives me (Pr. Jean) an excuse to call and talk to you more often. The majority of people, who attend the 8:30 am service regularly, have stated a preference for self-organizing immediately before the service. We’ll leave the sign-up sheets in the narthex and I’ll also go back to inviting individuals to help lead the 10:30 am service.

For-the-Community Garden

Contact: Pr Jean -

Everyone is welcome to sow, tend and reap from the For-the-Community Garden at anytime. Jeanne Weber and Pastor have started and plan to make Wednesday a regular tend the garden day. Come join in the fun, the more the merrier! It's more of an iced-tea and cookies affair than a forced labor, blood, sweat and tears kind of deal.
