A Lineage of Grace – Book Club
Thursday, November 6 at 10AM

The October reading selection will be, “A Lineage of Grace five stories of unlikely women who changed eternity” by Francine Rivers.  It’s an international best-selling book, and is a story of five novellas on the women in the lineage of Jesus Christ.  Tamar is a woman of hope; Rahab is a woman of faith; Ruth is a woman of love;  Bathsheba is a woman who received unlimited grace; and Mary is a woman of obedience.  This is a work of historical fiction but their stories are based on biblical accounts.  The lessons we can learn from them are as applicable today as when they lived thousands of years ago.  We will discuss the book on Thursday, November 6th, in the church lobby, at 10:00 am.  Coffee and light refreshments will be served.

VolunteerOpportunities

Lutheran World Relief Quilts - Women of Bethany (LWML) have been working hard this past year creating 56 beautiful quilts. Lutherans from around the United States have made quilts that are sent globally, wherever there is need, especially to those who face chronic poverty or refugee situations. 

LSSS Canyon Lake - Bring joy to girls by dropping off jars of pickles, 12 oz. 8 packs of soda, hair conditioner, fun rugs, colored ankle socks, and school supplies in the lobby area near the WBIM table. 

Mites and Mission Projects - Remembering the power of the "widow's mite," the Women of Bethany gather coins to support mission projects selected by the Texas District LWML. We have a "mite box" for you.

Helping Hands - The Women of Bethany volunteer to help provide meals for women who have newborns or who are sick.

Prayer Shawl Ministry - We have been blessed with many individuals donating their time and talents in making prayer shawls. As a result, we are able to extend this ministry to include, of course our own members but also those outside of the Bethany family, who are experiencing a time of unusual physical or emotional stress, and in need of the solace that only God can provide. These shawls wrap, enfold, comfort and cover people in time of distress. If you wish to share one of these shawls with someone, please contact the church office for a shawl.

Bethany Christian Store - Looking for volunteers to help run it on Sunday mornings.

Ladies Tea - Looking for volunteers to help plan and execute the many tasks needed to be done before the tea.
