Bethany Goes Green! 
 In an effort to take better care of the resources that God has so richly given us, we are excited to share ways that we here at Bethany are making efforts to lower our carbon footprint. We have proudly instituted Recycling here at Bethany for items that are used in the church and offices.  Aluminum, cardboard, clear plastic, glass, paper, and Styrofoam items are accepted and must be separated. In the main building, there are green bins located below the coffee station table in the Contemporary Sanctuary that are labeled with the items to be placed in them. In The Parish House there is a box for paper in the administrative assistant’s office and bins in the break/kitchen area for the other items.  
Please do your best to help Bethany go green and do our part to save the planet!!

BETH "Washed Clean Kits" (Hygiene Kits)

Bethany is proud and excited to announce we are launching a personal hygiene packs ministry for members of our community!  This will be an ongoing ministry and collection of materials will continue to be placed in the bins in the sanctuary. There will be events held at the church on tables that will be set up and individuals will be able to select from the items available for their own needs. We delivered 20 BETH Washed Clean kits to the HandUp women's shelter  “Renewed Hope Women’s Home” . 

The items that we are accepting for the packs are: 
Soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body sprays, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand/body lotion, wash cloths, hand towels, disposable personal/baby wipes, feminine products, toilet paper, and both baby and adult diapers.  (Items mostly needed are hand towels, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, feminine products, and individual packets of tissues.)

The small individual, hotel-sized bottles are preferred but any donations are welcomed! 

We thank you in advance for your support of this exciting new ministry!! 

During Worship in August we will be going through a sermon series on both personal and church growth in our Spirituality.  I will not be speaking on a strictly the policy of this is the way it has to be done.  I will be speaking more on this has to be done if we and the church want to grow closer to God’s plan for our lives and the life of the church.

Simply stated if we are not growing we are dying.  I choose to live and I want you to live to your best potential as well. So plan on attending and invite others to see what it is that God wants us to do and to become.
