Do you love to read? Do you enjoy discussing that "best book ever", but often can't find anyone who has read it?  Do you want a brief interlude when you can talk and think about things other than what your normal routine requires?  If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then we may have something that you'll like – the TN TEN Book Club!

The web sites listed below provide helpful information about many aspects of the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination, as well as all sorts of other interesting stuff!

Clicking on a link title will cause a new window to open.

    Bethel's Summer Minister
    As you may know, Rev. Wendy Neff will be out of the office from May 28 – Aug. 26 on her three-month sabbatical.  While she is gone pastoral leadership will be provided by the Rev. Dr. Dan McMillan.

    Rev. McMillan will be in the office on Wednesdays (9-3). During the hours when Rev McMillan is not in the office, Bethel members may call the Bethel office at 376-6340 to get his contact information.

    Rev. McMillan encourages you to be in contact with him.

    A minister cannot know when they are needed, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if:
  • you have pastoral needs or need to talk
  • you or a loved one is going into the hospital
  • you have a prayer concern
  • you want to talk about religion
  • you want to get to know the new minister
  • you want to discuss how the Atlanta Braves season is going

  • Rev. McMillan is here with and for you during his time at Bethel.
