Lenn Wood

Lenn Wood came to Bethlehem Baptist Church when he began dating his wife Theresa. She had grown up in the Church and her father said if he was going to date her, he had to go to Church. They were married at Bethlehem on February 2, 1980.  He joined Bethlehem on August 17, 1986. Lenn continued to grow in the spirit and was voted in as a Deacon on February 9, 1992. He is currently serving as a Sunday School Teacher, as a member of the choir and praise team, and as a Deacon. The most memorable thing in his life as a Bethlehem Church member is that he has always been accepted and treated as a member of a family from the first day he came. They have suffered the loss of parents and family members and this Church has always been there for them. Lenn loves his Bethlehem Family!
