Today is the last opportunity to sign up for the Good Samaritan Haven Dinner. Very few people have had the chance to sign up, because the list did not get out earlier. Our Sunday this month is the 25th. Many, many thanks to those who provided all the parts of last month’s bountiful meal. The response was amazing and heart-warming! At this time of giving thanks I, and the Outreach Board, are very thankful to the congregation members for their generosity and involvement in this wonderful ministry of Bethany Church.

The Creche - Next Sunday, November 25, we will prepare for Advent by bringing the Creche outside and putting it together. We always need several hands and hope yours will be available.
