MISSIONS

Current Mission Projects

South River Shoe Sharing

Missions will be partnering with South River Elementary School in Grottoes to provide new athletic shoes for children who cannot afford to buy a new pair.  Beginning Sunday, October 13, you can stop by the Gathering Space and pick up a paper shoe.  The shoes will have the size of a boy’s or girl’s athletic shoe that is needed.  Missions will collect the shoe donations at it’s annual Chili Cook-Off scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 10.  There will also be a bin in the Gathering Space for your donations.
 

Apple Tree Project

Missions will also be partnering with Kingsway Minitries for their Apple Tree Project.  Also beginning on Sunday, October 13, you can stop by the tree in the Gathering Space and pick an apple from it.  The apple will have a requested gift for you to purchase.  Gifts will go to children of incarcerated parents.  Unwrapped gifts are due back to church by Sunday, Nov. 17.
 
If you have questions about these or any of our mission projects, please contact Lori Mooney (brownsugarcookie@yahoo.com) or Maggie Rhodes (r.maggieanne@gmail.com).
 

Serving Our Neighbors

Bethany serves our neighbors through local mission projects. Many times throughout the year you will find us repairing a roof, building a wheel-chair ramp, serving meals at Valley Mission or making improvements at our local United Methodist retreat center, Camp Overlook. We take on special projects for neighbors in need, and we also work with local organizations like Rebuilding Together, a national organization that performs critical home repairs for low income, elderly, disabled or disadvantaged homeowners in the community. Questions? Ideas? Comments? Contact Lori Mooney (Brownsugarcookie@yahoo.com) or Maggie Rhodes (r.maggieanne@gmail.com).
 
 
Bethany is such a giving and loving church. We thank you for all that you contribute in any way that you can. Please keep an open heart all throughout the year and help out when and where you can. Everyone has a calling, so please listen for yours. Still keep eyes and ears open for those in need. If you know of someone, please pass their name onto Maggie Rhodes or Lori Mooney.
 
Beginning Friday, April 12 at 2:30 pm we will tear off a roof for a neighbor in Dayton.  On Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 am we will begin replacing the roof.  All are invited to assist in any way you are able.  If you can’t physically be present, you can help with the cost of the roof by making a donation.

Bethany Spring Mission Trip

We will be going to Plymouth, NC to work with Coastal Carolina Rebuilding Ministry (formally CROSS).  CCRM is a strategic and intentional justice ministry passionate about eliminating substandard housing on behalf of low income families that continue to struggle against economic depression, exploitation, and discrimination.
 
We will be leaving on Sunday, March 24 and will return on Friday, March 29.  We invite you to join us for the entire week or for only part of the week if you can’t get away but a few days.  We need skilled folks (carpenters, electricians, plumbers, roofers, painters, etc.) to join us, as well as simply willing hearts and hands.  If you would like to join the team or would like to have more information on the trip, please contact Maggie Rhodes at r.maggieanne@gmail.com.
