Starting this fall, we are going to begin a new ministry focused on reaching out and helping folks in the community. This ministry will consist of community projects in which people involved in the ministry wear t-shirts with Bethel Memorial Church on the back while serving in our community.

For questions, contact Ryan & Sarah Warner, phone 812-779-4713, or e-mail: email@example.com or find Ryan or Sarah on Facebook
We would love to have you join us for a delicious breakfast and encouraging word on Saturday, October 11th, at 7am.

Our church is planning to roll out a new ministry this Fall.
Lord-willing, beginning in September, Monday nights will be dedicated to providing Christ-centered, Scripture-based support groups for the church family and our local community. One of the first groups offered will be a recovery group for addictions.
Our prayer is that the Lord grows “Refuge” to provide more groups addressing more life concerns such as prison release/transition; finance management/stewardship; divorce recovery; and the list could go on.
Many Bethel volunteers ready to serve will be a vital part of “Refuge” in order to carry out the Monday night activities which we hope will include a meal and worship time prior to the group time.
Mike Clark is leading “Refuge” and would like to talk with you about serving or participating in a group. You can reach him at 812-632-8867. Please pray for Mike as he leads.
Pray for laborers to serve in the ministry. Pray for God’s unrivaled greatness & love to be known in our community as He changes our lives through His ministry work.
There are currently several small groups (3-7 men in a group) studying God’s Word and learning from each other. Several Groups are starting a new study. If you are interested in joining one of our small group Bible studies, check out the additional information on the sign up sheet in the south foyer of the church.
