Here are three ways you can serve with us:
On the second Monday of every month we visit "Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission" in downtown Philly. Our ministry there is to lead the nightly chapel prior to the men's meal. We tell stories about how we came to faith in Jesus, read Scripture, and have an evangelistic message. Our team of volunteers all contribute to elements of the chapel service each month. The ministry goes from 5:30pm to 6:30pm with an optional meal afterwards. Transportation can be provided if necessary. Come help us share the love of Jesus Christ!
ESL (English as a Second Language) Classes
We partner with GROW Northeast, an ESL program to host these classes at Bethany. We currently have Spring and Fall Semester courses at 5 different levels of English proficiency. The classes meet twice a week and have a number of other events throughout the year. Classes are cheap, and we get lots of folks interested. And it gives us a great way to tell people about Jesus! If you'd like to help minister to those who need to learn English, often immigrants and refugees in our community, volunteer at Bethany today!
Operation Christmas Child
Samaritan's Purse is an international charity that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world to people in poverty and the most difficult circumstances. For Operation Christmas Child we fill shoeboxes full of Christmas gifts for kids throughout October and November. When they are delivered by Samaritan's Purse they get hundreds of thousands of opportunities to share Jesus!
