RICE AND BEANS Every month we support the Montpelier Food Pantry with donations of food. These items are received and blessed in worship on the last Sunday of the month. We have a focus item that the Pantry has suggested to us, but people can give as they feel moved. All food goes to the pantry. From there it goes to hungry individuals and families who have trouble paying bills and eating. Thank you for what have and will do.

The Good Samaritan Haven- dinner is coming right up on October 28th. There are just two more opportunities to sign up to share your love with some hungry people. Judi is out of town this Sunday so Reg Welch has agreed to put the sign-up sheet out on the table in the Parlor so it can be easily found. During the week it is on the Outreach bulletin board. Please be a part of this wonderful ministry of the Outreach Board and the Bethany Congregation.

Fall Clean Up Day- Saturday October 27 from 9-noon. All are welcome to join in the fun!
