Operation Christmas Child
Labor Day Picnic & Games

Join us for fun, food and fellowship, after the 11 a.m. service for lunch and some games in Westenburg Hall. Cost is a monetary donation that will be used for shipping the shoeboxes that we will pack on November 11.
We had a lot of positive feedback regarding our Memorial Day Weekend Fund Raiser! In fact, many of you asked if we would be doing more of these? So, we decided to repeat and Thank You to all those who have participated and encouraged us to continue to grow this ministry.
Fall Missions Conference
Meet the Gaschos--September 24 & 25
The Missions Team is happy to announce that all three Gascho families will be coming for our “Serving Together” mission conference this September. On Sunday they will be sharing their ministry with various classes during the 9:45 a.m. Connection Time. At 11:00 a.m. they will be in both the Adult Worship Service and the Kidz Konnection Service. In the evening they will return for a 6 p.m. “Café Meet” in Westenburg Hall where beverages and refreshments will be served.
Then again join us on Monday night the 25th as we will meet for a fun and delightful evening that will include dinner, a Q&A session and a presentation from Adam Gascho regarding a new missions focus “Worth the Risk.” The Bethany family is encouraged to connect with the Gaschos for any of these time to get more acquainted with and their families .
Donate Now through November 2017
The Missions Team is excited to announce that our Bethany family will be participating in Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Last year, Bethany sent 366 shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse for distribution to children around the world. It was thrilling that so many families, groups, and individuals took part in this endeavor. This year, the challenge is to pack and send 500 or more Shoeboxes.
Over the next eight months, the Missions Team will be promoting this project and actively collecting items to pack at our Shoebox Packing Party in November. Info on what can or can’t be packed in shoe boxes will be available at the Welcome Center or click here for a copy.
The amazing journey of a Shoebox Gift begins with you and results in millions of children learning about God's Love. Please pray about this and join us in being a part of this mission project for 2017.
