Bethel-Bethany is seeking our next full time pastor – job posting is on the UCC website at: Congregational Profile -Bethel-Bethany UCC
Take a moment and read about us, about Sherman Park, about Milwaukee – here is our Summary Statement:
Bethel-Bethany United Church of Christ, located in an attractive, multi-cultural, multi-racial Milwaukee neighborhood, is a Spirit-filled, vibrant, progressive congregation. Being in the richly diverse city of Milwaukee gives us access to many spiritual, educational, and community resources. “In the Heart of Sherman Park” – our church and our ecumenical and business partners in the immediate area have opened dialogues and have strengthened our relationships with our neighbors, particularly in the last two years. Through our involvement with Common Ground, our 30+ year in-house Urban Immersion program open to all denominations, Community Dinners co-hosted with the neighborhood association, and our involvement with the Sherman Park Association of Religious Communities, we continue to work with our neighbors to grow together as a community. We are seeking to strengthen our community involvement by providing our newly renovated “Parish House” as a meeting place for training, special interest groups, and youth activities. Our congregation celebrates our rich history and values where we have been and also continuously works toward becoming an “Open and Accessible to All” congregation. As we reach goals we set, we continue to ask ourselves “how can we be more…” Our new pastor will lead us as a congregation to be an even stronger faith community whose mission is to be ambassadors of God’s love, both within our current community and looking outside the boundaries of our church walls.
