Our offering today is for support for the Benevolent Fund

Dear Congregation. Praise be to the Lord for His blessings. We, the Deacons, appreciate the support that you, Bethel congregation, have given us this past year. We have been able to help a number of families that needed our assistance as it has been a difficult time for some. At this time we come to you once again to help us to help those in need. We find our benevolent fund needs to be bolstered up so we can continue God’s work in caring for those in need. We would ask that you prayerfully consider what you can do to help financially. Thank you and may the Lord bless you.

Next Sunday, November 4th

our offering will be for World Renew – World Hunger. Families in many parts of the world are working hard to break barriers that have kept them in a cycle of poverty and hunger.

Create Change with the Peter Fish! 

He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:17 Last week in your mailboxes were devotionals and a Peter Fish bank. These are to prepare you for World Hunger Sunday on November 4th. World Renew invites you to participate in this year's World Hunger Campaign! UZIMA Together, our congregation and World Renew can equip those in need with the skills and knowledge required to move beyond barriers by creating stability, for those facing hunger and poverty, They can experience uzima, a sense of wholeness, for themselves, their family, and community. Extra devotionals for Adults and Children are located on the foyer table.
