I regret to inform you I will be resigning as Interim Minister of First Congregational Church of Bethel effective February 29, 2020. As many of you know, when the congregation voted at the annual meeting to transition to a part-time minister (a decision which I fully supported then and continue to support now), it was necessary for me to begin to seek another call.
Roxi and I will be moving to suburban Kansas City, where I will become the Transitional Lead Pastor of Hillcrest Covenant Church in Prairie Village, Kansas (
). Prairie Village is approximately three hours by car from Omaha, NE where two of our three children live.
Please accept my sincere thanks for welcoming Roxi and me into the life of the church community during these past six months. Please know that I will pray for First Congregational Church of Bethel as you continue to make the necessary changes to be in a position to have a vital ministry in the years to come.
With grace and gratitude,
Rev. Bradley J. Bergfalk
Intentional Interim Minister
