Sermon Series

January sermon series “#Circleup”

One mantra worth considering is “Miracles most often happen in circles not in

rows.” As wonderful and important weekly worship together is, God seems to do

His best work in and through us when we circle up. In circles, we are knee-to-knee

with one another, so we can see the glimmer or tear in each other’s eyes. To grow

spiritually, we need to be connected relationally. In this series, we will discover the

kinds of spiritual friendships we need to live richly and deeply in Christ together.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please enjoy the music while you check out our website!

Dear Friends,

My family and I would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest

appreciation and thanks for the kindness you have shown us during Christmas.

Your expression of love and support shown to us through your cards, tasty treats

and gifts have been so kind and generous.

We pray God’s blessings will be upon all of you and we hope that you will enjoy

good health, love and happiness this New Year and beyond.

God bless you always,

Pastor Dan, Karen and family

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. Volunteer activities can include: • Reading, playing music, card games, or crafts activities. • Listening to and documenting their memories for a life or memory journal. • Staying with patients to give family members a break to run errands, or take care of their own needs. • Certified Pet Visitors for pet lovers. • Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours. • Bereavement and grief support of family. • Military Veterans Visiting Veterans For your convenience volunteer training is provided online.

Mission of the Month

Our Mission Focus for the month of January is The Homeless Mission.

“And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you

will surely be rewarded.” – Matthew 10:42

No one should be homeless, however…

While NO ONE should be homeless in our society, the sad truth is – there are

thousands.  And while we need to find a resolution to the horrendous human

condition that should NEVER exist in this country, we need to start by at least

doing what we can for others.

Bethesda’s Sunday Night Soup Ministry provides 100 meals of soup, chili, hot

dogs, soft pretzels, cookies and hot chocolate each week in the winter.  Six to eight

times a year we provide 200 meals on a Sunday morning.  We go monthly to help

serve a hot breakfast.  We provide clothing items such as hats, gloves, socks,

hoodies and even blankets. 

This takes an army of volunteers and many donations of food items.  Bethesda and

our community has risen to the challenge in an amazing way!  More and more folks

are getting involved. We also spend about $2,000-$3,000 on lunchmeat and

supplies throughout the year.  We rely on our once a year Mission offering to keep

us funded. 

I encourage you to prayerfully consider making a financial donation this month to

keep this ministry alive and thriving on the streets of Camden.  We also urge you to

keep this ministry and the folks on the streets in your prayers.  We also appreciate

donations of food and time sacrificed during the year to take care of “the least”

among us.  God bless you. – Dan Stephens ( )

Fellowship Time

We encourage you to attend the Fellowship Times in the Fellowship Hall after 9:30 service, and then after 11:15 service in the Family Life Center.  Pease join us for coffee and refreshments.  We'd love to see some old friends as well as make some new ones!
