Simplicity Stressed The architectural feature of the new sanctuary of Bethel AME Church, 900 Plum St., is its simplicity, says the Rev. John A. Woods, pastor. An open house for the new $125,000 structure will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday. The church has been meeting in its educational building, which was completed in January of 1972.
