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!
Bethany Felton Joel Committee supplies meals to needy families in the Red Lion Area School District 1 to 2 times per year, helps with Christmas Gifts, and support the local Servants program.
