We have spent several months praying for this transition. Pastor LuAnn is off to her new appointment in Port Huron and Clio Bethany UMC welcomes Rev Catherine Huvaere. Pastor Cathi (as she prefers) comes to us from Wesley UMC in Niles, Michigan. Pastor Cathi’s last name (which looks more intimidating than it is) is pronounced like “Who – Var” (Var rhymes with Bar). Pastor Cathi is looking to get to know this congregation and community.
Please consider gathering a few friends to get to know Pastor Cathi as she transitions to join us at Bethany. Set aside an hour to share some stories and some laughs and it doesn’t have to be a meal either. Get a hold of Pastor Cathi after you have your group of friends to set up a time and place (any day but Friday because it’s her Sabbath day).
Welcome to Bethany, Pastor Cathi! We’ve been preparing for you and we are excited to see what ways God will use you within this community.
Pastor Cathi will join us in worship on 7/2/2017 to serve Holy Communion. However, her first sermon will be on 7/9/2017. She is kicking off her summer sermon series, Fruit of the Spirit with a message on “An Arranged Marriage”. Please come & meet Pastor Cathi and hear the Word!
