Benefit Concert for Bethel Lutheran

Psalms and Dances

Kathryn Canan & Mark Schiffer-  Recorders

Between Feb. 23 rd and March 2nd Bethel Lutheran was broken into four times and sustained thousands of dollars in damage. Thieves removed portions of the AC and heating systems and disassembled/destroyed sacred pieces from the altar area including candelabras, advent wreath, and the processional cross – some of which we were able to reassemble and some of which were left damaged beyond repair. Your donations are gratefully received.

Thank you for your kindness.
