Sunday in Catasauqua

Today, my huckleberry friend,  Cathy, noted in our church bulletin that Bethany Church, in Catasauqua was having a free Strawberry Festival from 11:30 to 1:30 pm, today.  So we decided that the neighborly thing to do would be to mosey on over and check it out. 

In case you don't know where Bethany Church is, the former Grace United Methodist Church at the corner of 5th and Walnut in Catasauqua was reopened as a satellite campus of Bethany Church in May, 2010.

They have a Contemporary Service, Sunday 9:30 am. This service includes a live praise band, nursery and Kid’s Church. The morning message is streamed live from the Wescosville Campus service. Casual dress is welcome.

They had free hot dogs and a strawberry dessert that was delicious.  We talked to a few people and I think it was a nice way for them to introduce themselves to the neighborhood.  Cathy and I even toyed with the idea of joining their Zumba class, although the thought of moving rapidly didn't seem to appeal to either one of us at that moment, but you never know.

I love when Catty is a friendly place and you can get to know one another, that's what makes it so appealing some days, and that's.......another day in Catasauqua.
