Blessing of the Animals 2017

From time to time on any given Sunday, you may see a dog or two in worship.  That's just how Bethany rolls!  On this special Sunday, our worship was graced with many many, many 4-footed friends as we celebrated our annual Blessing of the Animals!  Songs were sung about the wonderful part animals play in our lives, many of which were accompanied by howls and yaps of approval from our furry friends.  We remembered in prayer, and with photos and momentos, pets who have passed on and into the hands of God.  And each animal present (many dogs, and one brave cat!) received a blessing from Pastor Kathryn.
