In approximately 2 weeks, Bethany Children’s Home, located in Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania (an affiliated ministry of the United Church of Christ), will be welcoming 65 displaced children into their community. These children, ranging in age from 5 to 14, have been separated from their parents while entering the U.S. and are being cared for until they can be placed with family in the United States. These children come to Bethany with needs for physical and emotional care. Bethany has put together a list of items that are needed. That list can be found here. We will be collecting these items for the next 2 weeks and will make arrangements to have them delivered to Bethany Children’s Home. Monetary contributions will be accepted as well; please make checks payable to “Helping Hands.”
If you can support this ministry, please bring your contributions to church on Sunday or drop them off during the week at the church office.
