Mrs. Paula Rush—Administrative Assistant


I have been serving at Bethany Lutheran Church as the Senior Pastor’s Administrative Assistant since June of 2009. Before coming to Bethany I’ve worked in logistical operations for the Human Resource Department of a private contractor for the US Air Force. I’ve also been a licensed Court Reporter for the State of California. Both my husband and I have lived in Vacaville since our early teens when Vacaville was nothing but peach orchards, cows and onions. We have chosen to raise our own children here where they walked the same hallways that we did in school.  There is nothing I enjoy more than to spend time with my family and to play with my two little Yorkies and my little Maltipoo.

Mrs. Anna Dohse - Student Billing


I have worked in corporate America all my adult life, but when my son and daughter-in-law were expecting their first child, my son said to me, "Mom, I don't want a stranger watching my baby." So, in March 2004 when Sam was two months old I semi-retired. Two years later when Mason was born, retirement became permanent. My youngest grandson, Sawyer, will be 4 in June. They keep me on my toes for sure! I moved from Sonoma in November 2013 and started working at Bethany as Student Billing Coordinator in September 2014. I work mornings so that frees up my afternoons to care for the boys. I love that my place of worship is also my place of employment! God has truly blessed me with a wonderful church family, a rewarding job and grandsons to spoil.
