Cereal Drive! In the month of July we’ll be supporting Project Angel Heart (one of our Be The Blessing partners) in their drive to get 3,500 standard size boxes of healthy, whole grain cereal. Bring cereal to church on Sundays & Wednesdays in July. Please avoid sugary cereals, hot cereals, and individual/bulk sizes. These will be delivered, along with nutritious meals, to homes where people are fighting life-threatening illnesses.
You can also donate virtual boxes of cereal by texting “cereal” to 50155 or going to Project Angel Hearts’s website HERE. For more information, contact Sarah at 303-758-2820or firstname.lastname@example.org.
So far, We have collected a total of 457 boxes!

Sunday, August 21 – Rally Day!
We bring attention to the work of Operation One Nation and its sponsorship of a congregation-wide barbecue on Rally Day, August 21st, after the 8:30am service and well into the post-second service period. The barbecue will in fact give off its own Holy Smoke to help Operation One Nation fund the production of the CD album which the Bethany congregation has helped name “Keeper of All Stars”.
As reported earlier this year, the album, created by Dr. Dan Grace, includes music selections from various select Lutheran colleges and university choirs across the country and also takes from “Bethany’s best” to provide a sacred outlet for spiritual healing for those who are deployed, war weary and lost in battles fought years and years ago. This CD will also be used for those Bethany members in need of healing from a variety of reasons.
To add to the choral and instrumental music selected, Dr. Dave Brock, retired Army Chaplain, has added his gift of prayerful reflection with the creation of devotions tailored to the message of each of the hymns, providing his special understanding around comfort for veterans and military members. That devotional piece of the two-part set is entitled: “Lord Guide Our Way.”
Please put the date and the event on your calendars! Chef Chris will be serving up pulled pork, beef and chicken along with his special baked beans, corn-on-the-cob and corn bread. Dessert and drinks will also be included. The cost will be $10 for adults and $7.50 for children. Weather permitting (especially wind) there will be tents and tables set for shade, convenience and good conversation in the courtyard.

There are many ways that you can feel more connected to your Bethany community through works of love, starting with Service in Worship. Plug In 2016 – a Lenten discipleship opportunity!
