Room in the inn
The church showers are almost finished. The bedding has been donated. The weather is starting to turn cooler. It is time to begin thinking about how to help our neighbors, who are experiencing homelessness. Learn more about how you can help this ministry.
With the CDC recommendations we are requiring everyone in groups meeting inside the church, including Sunday morning worship, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks. Thank you for your understanding as we do our best to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Childcare on Sundays
Childcare is provided for infants through 5 year old Kindergarten during the 9:00 am Sunday School hour and the 10:15 am worship service. During the Sunday School hour there will be a Bible story and activities. All adults and children under two will wear masks. To offer this, we do need your help. You will not have to teach – just be an extra pair of loving hands. If you would like to help in this way, click here to sign up for one of the three groups:
Parents of youth – please talk with your youth about signing up to help in these classes. We are hoping to have 1 youth each Sunday.
BIBLE AND BOOK STUDIES
We have quite a few offerings that are currently taking place or about to start. Check out the offerings here. We hope you'll be able to join us.

Bethel Men's Shelter Update
Bethel Men’s Shelter is renovating the bathrooms to meet current ADA standards and increase capacity, allowing them to safely and comfortably accommodate their clients. Grace donations help make this possible! They can always use donations of -men’s underwear -twin sheets (thin, so they wash and dry quickly). You can order those items here. Elizabeth would be happy to take them to the shelter for you.
Hear, first hand, how the Men's Shelter can impact the lives of those it serves.

You can serve on Thursday and Friday afternoons and/or evenings to help prepare and serve food. There should be at least one adult helping out, but children around age 10 or older can help. Food preparation consists of making some PB&J and Ham & Cheese sandwiches. Go here for some more information and to sign up to help!
