  • Bethel helps others for Lenten season

    By Wendy Neff, For Roane Newspapers
    I came to Bethel Presbyterian Church as pastor nearly two years ago, in the middle of Lent.

    The church was somewhat still in transition, having just had an interim pastor, and so Lenten practices were minimal.

    Last year, we went back to previous practices of a special Lenten Bible study and Save Our Saturday mission events.
