ANNUAL RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE, JULY 24

ANNUAL BETHANY UMC RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE
TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2018
1:00 – 7:00 P.M.
WARREN BELVIN FELLOWSHIP HALL

Bethany UMC is hosting its annual blood drive on Tuesday, July 24.  Please make plans to bring a friend and donate the gift of life-saving blood!  Supplies are historically low in the summer, when the need is often greatest.  To register online, click HERE or visit www. redcrossblood.org.   For more information or to register by phone, contact Sandy Riggin (804-815-0915) or Mary Beth Mayer (757-876-7046).

Hosts and hostesses are needed for 2–hour shifts and sandwich and dessert makers will be recruited.   If you can help us on the day of the blood drive, please contact Sandy Riggin or Mary Beth Mayer.  Volunteer sign-up sheets will be distributed 2 weeks prior to the event.  

Thanks for help in making this the best blood drive ever!

 

RISE AGAINST HUNGER RETURNS TO BETHANY

COMING SEPTEMBER 9TH!  SAVE THE DATE &  JOIN THE FUN!

WHO:           EVERYBODY!  We need you!  Bring your family and friends, too!  All ages can participate as we have jobs that are suited to both children and adults.

WHAT:         A fun, family-friendly, hands-on mission program where we will work in an assembly line to package 10,152 high protein, vitamin rich meals in less than 2 hours!  A light sandwich lunch will be served and fun is guaranteed!

WHERE:      Warren Belvin Fellowship Hall

WHEN:        Sunday, September 9, after the 11 a.m. worship service

HOW:           COME HELP!   The more helping hands we have, the better.

DONATE!    Our goal is to raise $3,000 to cover the cost of meals. 
(Make checks payable to Bethany UMC & put “Rise Against Hunger” in the memo line, or put in an envelope labeled “Rise Against Hunger.”)

God has blessed us with abundant blessings.  With thankful hearts let us share that abundance by joining the fight to Rise Against Hunger.

For more information, contact Judy Burner (aburner@cox.net, 642-6016).

 

More Blessed to Give

Volunteers organizing the items collected were Bob Nardozzi, Bob Blubaugh, Mike Andersen, Donna Andersen, Lynda Blubaugh, and Judy Burner

Sixty-five families from Bethany United Methodist Church, Gloucester Point, donated over 2,000 pounds of items that were distributed to the Salvation Army, Laurel Shelter, Union Baptist Church food pantry, G.U.E.S.T. (Gloucester United Emergency Shelter Team) program, and Bread for Life.  Reverse advent calendar bags were distributed to church members prior to the beginning of December.  Families added one non-perishable item a day to their bag each day during Advent to be given to those in need in Gloucester County.

MISS A SUNDAY?

Life happens and sometimes we miss have to miss church but that doesn’t mean we have to miss a blessing!

Hope to see you in church this Sunday.  Bring a friend!
