We are so delighted to have you visit our Bethany United Methodist Church website! My name is Pastor Dan, I
recently joined this active and growing congregation. Bethany UMC is a group of friendly people who have
discovered the joy of serving others and serving God.
I find that to be a pastor takes time and involves building trust. This means getting to know each other and
eventually exploring what God may be doing in our lives together. In the
meanwhile, it can be a bit of a roller coaster. Why is that?
For some, there are expectations that I will be like the Pastor leaving; for others,
there can be hopes that I won’t be. Where ever you may find yourself in this spectrum, I would ask that you keep me
and my family in your prayers.
about us: I have a wife, Denise, and two adult children. My daughter is
currently attending St. Martin’s University and my son is in the process to become an electrician.
In addition, my wife’s mother lives in Lacey and requires a fair amount of
care. I have been serving God through the United Methodist church for close
to forty years. It is my conviction that God continues to
move in our world and
in each of our lives. I hope that in the time we share together, you too
will become all the more convinced of this as well.
peace, Pastor Dan
A Farewell letter from Rev. Ferdie...
My time is up! I am officially no longer your pastor. Let me say it for the last time: thank you for the love,
mission, prayer, food and fun that we did together.
I am so grateful to be followed by Rev. Dan Breznau. As some of you know, Pastor Dan is a gifted leader
with great skills in spiritual direction, teaching, and pastoral care. I am hopeful that you will generously give
him the same love and support you showered my family and me. I will be committed as well of observing the pastoral
protocol of disengaging from Bethany to make way for the ministry of Pastor Dan.
Farewell friends. Though this is goodbye, the love we shared together will continue to connect us in a
special way. After all, wherever we serve, we are all embraced by this one vast kingdom of belongingness in Christ.
From Louie, JD, Hiram, Theo and me, thank you for the 3 amazing years!
