 Coats for Bellwood Elementary: The Bethia United Methodist Women are starting their annual winter coat drive for the students at Bellwood E.S.

New or clean, gently used coats, size 5 through 16 (children’s) can be placed in the cart found in the Bistro area through Nov. 4th.

Operation Christmas Child – Once more Bethia will be participating in Operation Christmas Child, through the Samaritan Purse Ministry.  This program is a very simple way of touching the life of a child who has faced tragedy, or a life in poverty around the world.  Please fill a shoebox with suggested supplies for girl or boy, & return to Bethia no later than Sunday November 11th.  Pray for the child who will receive your gift.
