A volunteer opportunity is available with the SSVP Carbonear Foodbank.  This winter they are offering a program called Snow Angels.  Snow Angels aim to pair those who need a little extra help in the winter months with someone willing to help a neighbour.  A clear sidewalk and driveway can help ensure that our neighbours who are seniors, have mobility issues or other disabilities, have safe access to their homes so that they can attend medical appointments and receive care.  Most importantly it ensures that they are able to more easily get around during the winter preventing them from becoming isolated in the long season.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call 596-5945 and leave a message with your contact information.

Please continue to recycle bottles and drop them off at Nova Recycling. Make sure they are identified as “Bethany United Church, 596-6754”.

Outreach requests your help collecting plastic food safe containers such as ice cream, butter or yogurt tubs. The Gathering Place use these items for their take out program. You may drop these items off at Bethany either upstairs or downstairs. Thank you for your support.

YOUR church needs YOU. We are actively seeking volunteers to fill the following positions on our Church Council: Chair, Vice-Chair, Ministry & Personnel Chair, as well as members of various committees. Please consider these positions and call either our office at 596-6754 or Danny Button at 589-7200. Help Us continue the Ministry of our church.

____________________________________________________________________________

Due to Covid-19, Our Church office will only be open on Tuesdays from 10am until 1pm. Anyone wishing to drop off contributions can do so during this period. Other methods of contributing can still continue to be used and will be recorded by our Office Staff. This move is to ensure the safety of all members of our congregation.
