Outreach Ministry Team


I was hungry and you gave me food.
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink.

I was a stranger and you welcomed me.

- Matthew 25:35


Reaching Out to our members, community, country, and the world through support and service is one of Bethlehem’s Core Values. Bethlehem is an active church that reaches out to the community in a spirit of love, justice, and fellowship.  The Outreach Ministry Team supports the congregation in fulfilling this Christian responsibility.
