Welcome to Bethany Church! We are so glad you are here. My name is Melanie Rishel and I have been working as the Administrative Assistant since June of 2017.
My daughter Abigail and I have lived in the Lindsborg area for 23 years. We feel very blessed to be apart of such a wonderful Swedish Community.
Greeting, My name is Joyce Peterson!
My husband Mark and I have three grown sons, two daugthers in law and two grandchildren. I have worked at Bethany Church since 1984. My favorite part of my job is building relationships with families. I'm also a counselor in USD 400. My favorite Bible Verse, "This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
My Name is Ericka Lysell and I am married to Jeremy Alkire and a mom to Grant and Sawyer, although I claim all of my youth group kids as my own. I previously held an interim position of youth director, so this will be 5 years for me as the Youth Director of Bethany Church. I am a lifetime Lindsborg resident and Bethany Lutheran member, except for the 4 years I attended KU (Rock Chalk!) I hold a masters degree in social work and mental health. Preventing suicide is one of my passions.
