Green Valley Community Thanksgiving Service

Please join us for the annual
Green Valley Community Thanksgiving Service
Wednesday, November 23
at 7pm
at Bethelview United Methodist Church
located at 193 Ridge Road

NEW this year:  All FOOD Donations brought to this service will go to the Green Valley School Food Pantry, which helps feed hungry kids in our community and their families.
All monetary donations will go to Hospitality House and Hunger Coalition (please make checks payable directly to these organizations, not the host church).

There will a receptioin with light refreshments following the service.  This is a great opportunity to meet and visit with folks from our other area churches.

In a time when church division seems to be everywhere, let's proclaim the unity we have in Christ by worshipping with our fellow Christians of various backgrounds, giving to these great causes, and fellowshipping in the name of Christ!

Fiber Flock Update - Scarves!



and more scarves!

Can you tell what we've been working on lately?
We've been making scarves for the kids who come to the Children's Advocacy Center.

Although that has been our focus, we've also been making the usual,
busy aprons for dementia patients...

preemie and chemo hats, and blankets!

Check out this traditional-style Granny Square blanket!  Gorgeous!

If you are interested to put your skills to use in these ministries, or if you want to learn how to knit or crochet for the first time, we'd love to have you join us!
Bethany Fiber Flock meets
the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month
at 7pm in the church basement.
We welcome folks of all ages, experience levels, and gender!
Come join us!
