Strawberry Festival – this Saturday!

Bethel’s annual Strawberry Festival will be this Saturday, June 6 from 11 am to 3 pm. Strawberry shortcake, hot dogs, hamburgers, a bake sale, children’s activities, and more! An attic sale begins at 10 am in front of the church–come early for best bargains!

Weather permitting, this fun event will be held outdoors in the shady area next to the church building. If rain occurs, we will move inside to our Social Hall.

The money raised from this 50+ year annual event  supports the Red Cross and Bethel’s ongoing ministry.

Parking is available in the lot at the adjacent Red Cross building.
