Senior Pastor: Rev. Cathi Huvaere
Pastor Cathi came to Bethany UMC in July of 2017 and we are just so glad to have her! 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 give her a warm welcome when you meet her!
