Ways to Serve this Fall

Bethel Women is in need of Tuesday AM volunteers to help with our children’s program, which coincides with our MOMs group. No teaching or prep time is required! The group meets every Tuesday during the school year from 9-11 a.m.. We need weekly helpers and substitutes. We want to allow our mothers the time and space to breathe, read God’s word, and fellowship with other moms. In order for that to be possible, we need volunteers to help with the children. If this sounds like an opportunity God may be calling you to, please reach out to amyhashbarger@bethelfc.com

More Power To You

by Margaret Feinberg

Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m., Zoom, Led by Carrie McLeod
In a culture that constantly tells us we’re not God enough, not beautiful enough, and not doing enough, it’s easy to feel as if we have nothing to offer. Lies about who we are and how we are failing slip into our thinking until we believe they are reality. But that’s not what God intends for us.
