The Worship Committee decided to change the name of the fourth monthly Sundays at Beulah from Contemporary Worship Service to a Blended Worship Service. The Contemporary name raises certain expectations for a Worship Service experience at Beulah. We believe a more appropriate name is a Blended Worship Service which is more appropriately described as a traditional Worship Service with special music and some contemporary elements.
The date for our upcoming Blended Worship Service is July 23. If you are interested in participating or have musical favorites, please see Ellen Cooke, Worship Music Leader.

Long-time Beulah member, Jay Grafton, died July 7th. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 on August 26th at Beulah..
