Minute for Mission
Bethany Christian Services
Week of March 15, 2020
NPC's Mission Committee in previous years has designated Bethany Christian Services for our yearly White Gift. Their mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services. A member of our congregation, Kathy Hurwitz, will be telling us more about them in a "Minute for Mission" this morning during worship.
The below is from their website: Bethany.org
Making an Impact: Since 1944, Bethany has grown and developed not only into a well-known adoption agency, but a social services agency that serves and supports expectant parents, foster families, individuals and families in need of counseling, and struggling families and children who are in desperate need of even the most basic necessities. Bethany’s purpose is to demonstrate the love of Christ by equipping families to be the answer for children in need. Our founders started Bethany by taking in one child who needed a home. Last year, Bethany served more than 45,000 expectant parents, children, and families.
Amazing Growth, Amazing Grace: Bethany began with the dream of two women who stepped out in faith, with hearts full of love. Today, Bethany’s diverse ministries and its influence both nationally and internationally have grown in ways its founders could never have imagined. But their dream remains our guiding star: to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services.
