Caring Connections/Stephen Ministry
Contact Joanne Stensaas, Dave Denny

Meets monthly after the Stephen Ministry meetings, on the 2nd Monday of the month. The purpose of the group is to help the Bethel community stay connected with members of the congregation who we have not been seen in worship for a while, using the “caring connections cards” which worship attendees fill out as a starting point for making phone calls.
