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.


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

If you have to miss worship on a Sunday, you can still listen to Pastor Mike’s sermons by clicking HERE.   You can also read the bulletin on line by visiting our Media/Resources page.  Even if you are on the go you can still be “in the know”!  

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