Myra Rogers Long began serving as Director of Worship and Music Ministries in May 2018. Myra is the wife of The Rev. Terrell G. Long, Jr., retired ELCA Pastor. Myra is herself a native of Richfield, NC in North Stanley County. She attended Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, NC and Guilford Technical Institute (now College) in Jamestown, NC, where she received an Associate degree in Nursing. She retains her licensure as a Registered Nurse, although much of her attention is directed toward her work at Bethany. She studied piano for seven years, and organ for two years. She serves in the work of planning hymnody, liturgies, and special music for worship services at Bethany, as well as accompanist for the Early Service, Organist for the Late Service, Director of Choir, and soon we hope to begin rehearsals with handbells. She and Pastor Long have two daughters who are both married. We know that anyone who is led by the Holy Spirit to join us for any of our services will appreciate the gifts that Myra brings to Bethany.
