Bishop Election 2020

At the May 2020 Annual Assembly of the Southeastern Iowa Synod we will be electing a new Synod Bishop. As such, the Office of the Bishop has appointed a team to begin the process of assessing current and future needs within our Synod and what qualities we view as important for the next Bishop to have.

You are invited to be a part of this process and take a short survey online. Click here to be taken to the Synod website. Additionally, you may view the document below to learn more.

Mission Opportunity

Following the snowstorm last winter when Bethany housed 40+ stranded motorists, a small team has felt called to look into this further and how God might use us in future emergency situations to reach out with the love of Christ and come alongside our neighbors in need. With the approval and support of the Council, steps are being undertaken to partner with Cedar County Emergency Management in being a 24-48 hour emergency shelter. There are many things to take into consideration and the team is meeting regularly to put policies and procedures in place.

We will need several volunteers to come alongside as we form an Emergency Response Team.  We are even considering ways we might partner with others in our community. In the meantime, we wanted to make this known to each of you and if you are interested in learning more and becoming a volunteer in the event an emergency situation happens that Cedar County does need to utilize our space please contact Pastor Chad (pastor@wbbethany.org) who will forward this onto the planning team.
