Bethel Hills Community Ribbon Cutting October 24

The Bethel Hills Community in Dutzow, a faith-based community for people with and without developmental disabilities living together, held an open house, dedication service and ribbon-cutting on Sunday, October 24. There was a great turnout from the community, including board members, prospective clients, volunteers and donors. The event started off with an open house and tours of the property.

Billie Kramme said a few words before the dedication ceremony. She is President of Advocates for Community Choice, the non-profit organization that owns the property. Billie thanked everyone for coming and for the generosity of so many. Billie said, “We began this journey over six years ago. We do not take any credit for this, but what we have seen is that the Lord has used multiple people to meet every need we have had so far. So we are here today to thank Him for everything he has provided us and we are dedicating this to Him.” One of Bethel Hills Board Members, Pastor John Wagner of First Christian Church of Union, MO, led the dedication service in song and prayer.

The ribbon-cutting was a very exciting moment for everyone involved in this project. There has been a lot of work completed in the community, and there is still much to do. The first tenant should be moving in later this fall and they have a waiting list of about 20 people waiting for openings.

The community also has rental opportunities for their chapel, overnight stays, offices and events.
