At this time the adult wing canopy project is on-hold. We are still passionate about serving those with greater physical challenges. However, the cost for the project has gone up significantly over the past two years from $350k to $450k which made us wonder if there was a better solution.
In the short-term we will be adding door enhancements to both adult and children wing entrances. We also plan to seek other ways of addressing these core issues through volunteer teams and smaller projects. We welcome any ideas and suggestions you might have in these areas!
In the past year church members have asked us many questions about our church government and decision-making processes at Bethany. We are an elder-shepherded church. This is very different from a congregational-led church or a staff-led church.
The elders have authority and responsibility to make or oversee all the decisions of the church with six limitations.
Our budget Q&A meeting is almost here. While we will answer questions related to the proposed 2023 annual budget, we will also dedicate a large portion of time to take questions regarding the revised vision projects. This is the perfect time to ask all of your questions and get clarity on any points that you want more information on.
We want to answer all the questions before the annual meeting on April 23rd. Our goal is that the annual meeting will be focused on ministry updates and the actual vote.
