​​​​​As we approach the beginning of the New Year 2019, we can reflect back approximately two years ago when we officially began the exploratory process and faith walk embracing the vision of building and church expansion.  Because of your financial support and prayers we are thrilled to announce on Dec. 3, 2018 we completed Phase I, being the demolition of the parsonage.
We are now approaching phase II which is establishing a feasibility analysis to gain greater insight as we move toward our vision.  An extremely competent team has been hired that will present not only church designs, but opportunities to support church sustainability.  The feasibility team will identify:

                            (1) Community programs beneficial in helping those in need

                            (2) Real estate opportunities to support church growth and expansion

                            (3) Grant opportunities to create community partnerships

                            (4) Anticipated growth through a 20 year period of specific community programs

As a follow-up to our church conference on Sunday November 11, 2018 it was identified that the cost of the feasibility analysis will be $10,500.   It was discussed and agreed by the church conference to request a sacrificial gift from each member of $250.00 to support this cost.  Therefore we need 42 members or “Friends of Bethel” to commit to pay in full the requested amount.  Below are the scheduled for payments and the number of members or “Friends of Bethel” needed in order to achieve our goal.  Please review and identify the date you are able to support and return to the church office.

             1st Deposit                   $5,000.00          Due Jan. 6, 2019            Require 20 members

             2nd Payment               $2,750.00          Due Jan. 27, 2019          Require 11 members

             3rd Final Payment     $2,750.00          Due Feb. 24, 2019          Require 11 members

Remain prayerful in your commitment, as we move toward our vision of building and church expansion.  Your financial support is needed throughout this entire process in helping to reach the financial goal as previously indicated.  Thusly, as we progress into Phase II of this journey, regular status updates will be provided.  Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
