JONAH BIBLE AND SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE beginning Thursday, Sept 7th at 11 AM: This study of the book of Jonah will take us on a journey which will start with our learning what the people of Jesus’ day thought about the book. We will use Ancient Bible Study Methods to discover the treasures God places in this narrative, which the LORD wants us to find!
At the end of each chapter we will discuss the spiritual lessons that God has for us. This study will be an examination of how God’s love and grace works inside each of us. How can you better know the LORD
and be obedient to His word? Together we will explore this question and many others.
There are two books that you will need. These books are $7/ea.

Three to four times per year, the people of Bethany Felton gather donations to prepare a meal for the homeless of York, PA. Along with preparing and serving a hot meal, extra brown bag lunches are made to give to each person. Individuals from across the generations are invited to participate in this meaningful time of service. This ministry has been extended to giving out donations of clothing, blankets and toiletries.
Family Ministry Events
The Children and Family Ministry Team work very hard to provide a family friendly event once a month throughout the year. Please keep an eye on the calendar for these special events, which range from outdoor movie nights to game nights, to roller skating! Each event is planned with families of all shapes and sizes in mind.
Offering an important service to those in need within our community, the Bethany Felton Food Cupboard is always accepting donations of non-perishable items, such as cereal, canned goods, and boxed meals. Frozen turkeys or chickens are a much-appreciated extra blessing!
