Food for the Montpelier Pantry - Each month the Outreach Board focuses on collecting one type of food (as per request of the pantry). People may give any type of food, it too will be collected and blessed and sent. For the month of March our focus food is fruit juice. So, bring in boxes, or bottles.

Oatmeal boxes! The Sunday School is in need of empty round oatmeal boxes for an upcoming lesson! If you have one to donate, please leave it in the Sunday School Resource Room before Sunday, March 6th.

Bethany's Spring Auction! Saturday, April 30th! This is a new fundraiser for Bethany Church, as well as an opportunity for us to work and have fun together! We will need lots of help to make the auction a success! There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board in the hallway - please sign up to help in any way that you can - lots of types of jobs are available for all abilities!
Thinking about Spring Cleaning? When cleaning out your clutter, think about donating to the Bethany Spring Auction, Saturday, April 30th. We will be receiving donated items at the church beginning the afternoon of Monday, April 25th through Thursday, April 28th. Item pickup will be available. We will accept antiques, furniture, collectibles, china, crystal, tools, artwork, unused wedding presents that are lurking in your closets, and other unique items in good, clean condition. Please – no TV's, computers, clothing, or mattresses.

Missed Worship? The announcements, including some that were only verbal, will be posted to the web site on Monday mornings at 9:00am.

Bethany Book Group- February's read is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.
To be discussed next Sunday.

Bethany Church Cookbook - Today is the last day to submit recipes. Coming May, 2011! Please submit 3-5 recipies for inclusion. You know we have great cooks in the church. Now you'll be able to have their recipes in one place when you purchase this new cookbook. Forms to submit recipes are available in the Narthex, Church website or by emailing Judy Ribolini at and she will send you a form via email; you can type your recipe and return to her via email for inclusion.
