Sermon series: The Good News According to Mr. Rogers

It’ll be a beautiful day in the Bethesda neighborhood as we explore the gospel according to Fred Rogers, who was an ordained Presbyterian minister and children’s television personality.  Mister Fred Rogers wonderfully integrated his Christian beliefs into his life and work, so that

through him, others could see the gospel come to life. Start thinking of a friend or neighbor you could invite to join you!

Donations and serving

Mission of the Month

Our Mission Focus for February   Our Mission focus for February is on Billy and Joanna Coppedge who

are missionaries serving under World Gospel Mission.  Last year Billy and

Joanna left Uganda, Africa to serve under a special assignment in the

United Kingdom.  Billy worked on getting his Doctorate Degree in Bible

Storytelling and Training Church Leadership.  Billy obtained his doctorate

degree in this field and has returned to Uganda, Africa.   He is training and

helping pastors to use storytelling of the Bible in an effective way to

spread the Gospel.  As of now, it has been very successful in helping to

understand and learn about the Bible.  His two older daughters, Elsie

Jayne and Lucy, are also helping to spread the good news of the Gospel to

other children using some of their father's techniques and training.  They

are happy to be back in Uganda and to witness how God is using them in a

different way to spread the Gospel rather than just through sermons.  Keep

this family in your prayers and pray for their continued success in this new

way of Bible Storytelling.  Thank you for your support.  They are in need

of it to continue their work for the Lord.

Hospice Volunteers Needed

 We are in need of volunteers to visit patients in your community. Although visiting hospice patients isn't for everyone, for those who choose to give back in this way, it is a very rewarding experience for both volunteer and patient. Wouldn't we all want someone there for us when we needed the support. Angelic Health Hospice looking for volunteers For as little as an hour or two a month you can make a difference to a hospice patient in your community. Angelic Health Palliative & Hospice Care is asking you to share your time and compassion to those on their final journey. Your visits can mean so very much to hospice patients and their loved ones. Your volunteer service will fit your schedule and interests, and visit assignments are your choice.
