JONES/JOYNER MUSIC FUND

The Jones/Joyner Music Scholarship Fund honors the outstanding ministries of two individuals:  Larry Jones and Vernon Joyner.  Both led Bethel's music ministry.  The Jones/Joyner Music Scholarship Fund enables our music ministry to consistently provide quality music offerings in and outside of our regular worship gatherings. 

Through the generosity of the congregation, this fund has brought us many talented musicians who have enhanced our worship music each Sunday.  

Our current Jones/Joyner scholars are flutist Charlene Romano and bassist Alex Kimble.  

As the holidays approach, your continued donations to this fund will ensure that we can provide special music for the season. Would you consider making a one-time or continued donation to support our music ministry? 

Checks can be made payable to Bethel with "Jones/Joyner Fund" in the memo. Thank you for your continued support of music at Bethel
