The Bethlehem New Pathways team invites EVERYONE to join us for a special brunch this Sunday in the Fellowship Hall between services (about 9:40 a.m.).

Whether you know a little or a lot, we want you to come and hear from Loretta Weiss who works with the New Pathways program in Brainerd. She is so inspirational and emulates the spirit of helping those in need.

The Crop Walk will be on Sunday, October 12, beginning at 2 pm, here at Bethlehem. The walk will be around Bethlehem's neighborhood and several area churches will participate together to raise funds and walk in support of Church World Service and the Brainerd area.

Twenty-five percent of all funds raised will stay in Brainerd to benefit the Salvation Army Food Shelf, the Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen, and Operation Sandwich. Please consider a donation to the Crop Walk and come walk with us on October 12! Refreshments will be served at Bethlehem at the conclusion of the walk.
