Marketplace Mission Grants

The annual Bethany Marketplace is the main fundraiser for Bethany Women in Mission.  Proceeds from Marketplace are used to provide mission outreach grants to Christian based organizations.  Funds from the 2013 Marketplace totaled a little over $14,600.  This year fifteen mission projects have been chosen to receive grants.  A list of grant recipients has been posted at the Bethany Women in Mission table.

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.

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