You are encouraged to attend the informational meeting so that you can get your questions answered fully, or, if you have a question that needs more attention, the Bethany Board of Directors will be able to address the issue and have an answer before the Financial meeting. If you are unable to attend the informational meeting and have questions, please talk with one of the ministers or a member of the Board of Directors (Amy Bell, Judi Joy, Sandy Clougher, Joe Murray, Stephanie Ratmeyer, Judy Ribolini, and Patty Turley) prior to the meeting.

Sunday October 5th
2nd Annual CWS Central Vermont Crop Hunger Walk
Last year we raised over $6000 for Crop Hunger Walk – 25% of that came back to central Vermont soup kitchens and food shelves.  This year our goal is $10,000.  Will you help us reach that goal?  Join a team!  Make a donation.  We have walkers from many central Vermont churches – this is a non-denominational effort.  It would be great to have more from Bethany Church.
If you are interested – please talk to me after church on Sunday.  I have donation packets and more information to share.  Start walking at 1:00 from the Barre Congregational Church and help the hungry.
