Bethany Hurn

Church Secretary

My name is Bethany Hurn.  I have been the part-time church secretary since November of 2015.  My educational background is in Psychology & Social Services, so QuickBooks & doing taxes have been an ongoing learning experience! 
I have been married to my husband, Dan, since Oct. of 1995.  We have 2 adult sons, Jared & Cody.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, travelling (especially to scenic places like our national parks & beaches or historical sites), playing board & card games, going out to eat & watching movies…or any combination of the above!  I like being out in nature on walks, hikes, bike rides or drives.  I enjoy flowers & animals.  Purple is my favorite color & fall is my favorite season.
