    Bethel Happenings
    (updated October 23, 2021)

    Sunday, Oct. 24, a fall outing for Bethel children, youth and the young-at-heart will be held at Narramore Farms Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze from 3-5 pm.

    Enjoy wagon rides, pumpkin patches, corn maze, games, and much more.

    Please come and join the fun and fellowship! 

    Narramore Farm is located at 199 Laurel Bluff Road, Kingston 37763

    In order to safely remain in the sanctuary while COVID positive case numbers continue to rise and/or remain very high in our area, there will be additional distancing in the pews.

    • Only a few pews are completely marked off:  the two in the front on each side that have been marked off for a while and the two shorter pews in the middle.

    • The pews have a pool noodle in the spot where you are not to sit.

    • The ushers will help you know where to sit on Sunday if you are uncertain.

    • Hopefully this will not cause too much disruption to our normal seating patterns and will allow us to continue safe distancing in worship while not impacting the overall number of people who can worship in person. 

    • Thank you for understanding and for cooperating as we make adjustments along the way.

    Kingston Lakeside Market
    It is exciting to announce the prospect of a farmers market in Kingston in 2020.
    (scroll to the bottom for links to our survey and application forms)

    The idea of a market was initiated by Bethel Presbyterian Church as part of their vision as an Earth Care Congregation. It will be established with the cooperation of the City of Kingston. The proposed site will be in the city parking lot directly behind the church at 203 S. Kentucky Street. The market will be held every Saturday from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM starting next spring. At this point in the process, we are seeking information from customers and potential vendors. To establish this market it will take community support. We cannot have a market without vendors and shoppers. This will be “our” market referring to the residents in and around the Kingston Community.
