MISSION UPDATES



Red Cross Blood Drive


We are continuing our community outreach opportunity with the Red Cross with a Blood Drive on Tuesday, July 28.  The Red Cross will be using our Social Hall to hold a blood drive for the community from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. 


Donors should go to this link to sign up to donate as only donors with appointments will be permitted in the drive.

All donors will have their temperature taken at the entrance and masks are required of all donors.  Please contact Carolyn B. Hofmann if you have questions about donating or go to https://www.redcrossblood.org/. Please share this opportunity with your friends and family on your social media accounts for their consideration to donate.


For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to our donors. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus. The Red Cross is committed to helping others in meaningful ways during this pandemic.


Thanks for helping to spread the word about our blood drive on July 28.

Good Neighbors


The purpose of Good Neighbors is to help families and individuals in times of crisis that are in  need with clothing,

emergency food and support for over 61 years. Bethany UCC collects food, clothing and school supplies for

Good Neighbors to distribute.  Bethany UCC collects  these needed items and delivers them to Good Neighbors weekly.

Serve Others In Our Community

Bethany Kitchen

 

Bethany Kitchen is the 3rd Saturday of every  month at 11:30.  Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are still figuring out a plan for future Bethany Kitchen dates.  Stay tuned and check back here!

 

Since 1991, we have provided free meals once a month for those in the community in need of nourishment and social interaction.  All are welcome!


Food that is served by the kitchen is obtained from the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank and other sources. Local grocery stores donate baked goods and occasionally baked goods are donated by members of the congregation. Individuals from the Bethany congregation who might wish to participate can do so by helping  to prepare the meal, serving and clean up.

 

Thank you!

Treasure Sale 

 

We will be holding our annual Treasure Sale this in the fall and we will be accepting donations soon. This gives you plenty of time to clean out your closets and make a box for the sale. 

 

We will not be accepting clothes, big TVs or computers/printers.  But do save your Parcheesi game, ukulele, old towels, books, toys, Barbie Dolls, and candy dishes.

 

As summer comes to an end, we will be announcing when drop off times will start. Just call ahead of time for drop off at 330.923.5277.

 

Happy Spring cleaning!
