From Pastor Jon N. Cox
Hello! It is good to be able to greet all the visitors to the Bethel Lutheran Church website. While we have this opportunity to "meet", it seems helpful to tell you a little about myself.
Let me begin by directing you to the picture on the left. This is a picture of my wife, Doreen, and I. We have been married for 21 years. How time flies! God has certainly blessed us by giving us a life together. In addition to our shared faith in Christ, God blessed us with five children who believe and confess that saving faith with us. Our children range in age from 19 to 10. We spent the last 14 years in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and just recently moved to the community of Galesville. It is such a blessing to live in this area of the state; we love the scenery that God's has provided in the coulee region.
I grew up in the area of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my mom and dad and four brothers. God blessed me and enabled me to know the unconditional love of God through his Word and the example of my family.
Having served as a pastor since 1992 in College Station, Texas and Fond du Lac, it is exciting now to be a servant among the people here at Bethel. I am always pleased to meet visitors and anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith, our congregation, and the WELS. Feel free to call me at (608) 582-9998 or call either church office. The number in Arcadia is (608) 323-3270; in Galesville it is (608) 582-4329.
