Building - Growing - Restoring
The Building Project to Restore Bethel Christian School
The first Sunday in November of 2016, Pastor Patrick D. Clayborn announced that Bethel would renew its focus to restoring the Bethel Christian School, located across the street on Lanvale. The building, which has sat vacant for several years, was in desperate need of roof repairs. The Bethel Nation of givers came together and raised the funds needed to get the roof work completed by December of 2017.
-----------MARCH 2017 UPDATE---------
THE ROOF HAS BEEN REPAIRED !
Asbestos Abatement and Mold Remediation has been completed as well!
We are now raising money to continue next steps toward getting the building inhabitable. If you would like to contribute to our efforts to fully restore the school building- please donate to the "Bethel School Restoration" fund.
We thank you for what you have given and pray God continue to bless you mightily for what you will continue to sow. We are Bethel! The House of Healing, Help and Hope.
REFRESH! – MEDIA MINISTRY RESTORATION
Enabling Faith. Proclaiming the Word. Serving the World
Romans 10:17- So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
In November and December of 2016, BethelAMEC underwent an equipment and media / IT assessment. We found that our ability to share the dynamic Word and Worship provided weekly is greatly hindered by the state of the audio / video equipment in use. The majority of what is in house is over 25 years old. The issues manifest in dropped audio, popping, cracking and other sounds, compromised video stream quality and more.
January of 2017 Pastor Patrick D. Clayborn shared the state of our media equipment and asked that the Bethel Nation and friends pray diligently about each person sowing a $100 seed to meet the $150k budget to replace our outdated analog systems with digitally based equipment.
-----------------MAY 2017 UPDATE --------------------
Bethel Nation Family ! Thank you to those of you who have been giving FAITHFULLY to the #Refresh campaign. As Pastor Clayborn has shared in our Church Conference meetings and Sunday Worship Services, leadership along with our Finance and Stewardship Board made the necessary purchase by taking a loan out against ourselves from a savings investment fund. This enabled us to purchase the equipment that was sorely needed and put in place for the 2nd District's Baltimore Annual Conference. This move also keeps us from assuming a hefty interest rate from taking an outside loan. Stewardship over all of Bethel's finances are always a priority. Thank you in advance for what you've sown, and please continue to sow as the Lord leads you.
Your donations will go toward repaying ourselves.
