Bethany Family and Friends

Bethany Family and Friends will be going to our last Devils Hockey game on February 18th, 2017 at 12:00 p.m.  for pizza, soda and water, followed by the game at 1:00 p.m.  I just learned that the Devils Hockey team is moving to Binghamton for next season.  So come and join us and keep in mind we are a good luck charm as they have never lost a game we have attended.  The tickets this year are $17.00 and the pizza is $9.00 per person.  There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex so be sure to sign up.

Be Our Guest Dinner

Come and enjoy a delicious Meat Loaf dinner prepared by the BOG crew, on February 21st, 2017 at 4:45 to 5:45 p.m.  Besides meat loaf, there will be potatoes, vegetables, desserts and drinks.  This is a good time to meet people from the neighborhood and enjoy good food and fellowship.

Family Promise

Third Reformed Church is hosting two families the week of
January 29th to February 5.  One family is the parents and 3 teenagers, and the second family is a mother and one teenager son. Bethany has agreed to help Third Reformed Church with this. I am looking for the following:

February 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. someone to prepare a meal and you can
share the meal you prepare with the two families. Then from 7:30 p.m. to
9:30 p.m. someone to join the families and play games, socialize and just
keep them company. Then I need 2 people to stay overnight from 9:30 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. This needs to be repeated for February 3rd and 4th.

It’s important that you let me know how you can help. Please contact me by phone at 452-3500 or email at nmurray02@earthlink.net. Thanks in advance.
