Worship Leader
Elizabeth Hart

Elizabeth is a native of Fort Mill, South Carolina and works full time at Clemson University. She completed her church music studies at Furman University with a concentration in religion.

 
Elizabeth’s life verses are found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” She says, “Every day you are given a choice on what attitude you will have toward those you meet. These verses help me to focus on having an attitude like Jesus as I meet new people and spend time with those that God has place in my path that day.  I know no matter what the circumstance of my day may be, Jesus loves them and it is up to me to share that message with them. As I trust God in all things, He blesses me and my attitude becomes one of gratitude.”
 
Elizabeth enjoys mission work anywhere it may be. She left part of her heart in Mexico with the people of La Roca Church in Puebla as well as the people in the Totonocan mountains. It is her prayer she will be able to go back to encourage the believers there to keep the faith. God is good!
Administrative Assistant
Kathy Moss
Kathy grew up in the Oakway area and attend schools here. She married and had two sons. Her husband became a pastor and the family moved away from the area. After the death of her husband she moved back to the Seneca area to take care of her in-laws.
 
Kathy brings lots of experience to the church office because of being a pastor’s wife for 30 plus years. She does not look at her position as the Administrative Assistant at Bethel as a job, but as a ministry. She has had experience working in other church offices not all of which have been Southern Baptist. She enjoys sharing with those who come by the church and tries to answer their questions.
 
Kathy has six grandchildren and enjoys spending time with them when the opportunity arises. None of them live near by but visits are scheduled often. She teaches Sunday School at her church, and is the coordinator for the Prayer Ministry.
 
Her verse to live by has always been Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” because life experiences have shown her that “all things are for our good and God’s glory” no matter what comes our way.
