Bethpage is LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD future MEN… The Warrior Boys Club- This organization is for BOYS ONLY – grade 2 – 5 & meets Sunday mornings in THE WAR ROOM. A few goals of this club is:
·To empower boys with spiritual truths that enable them to grow into Real Men of God.
·To use fun activities to allow them to develop the skills they will need as they approach adulthood
·To offer them opportunities to serve others and their church in rewarding and meaningful ways
·To enjoy time apart from “the world” to express their ideas, examine their lives, and
celebrate who they are.
·To challenge them to grow and be bold Christians who are not ashamed of the gospel.
The world needs real men who will stand up to the challenges of tomorrow. We need warriors! For more information, contact Ched Hargett.

Agape Acres - Calling all green thumbs and tractor drivers in our midst…the next step in our Agape Acres project is our community garden. We need volunteers to plow under the space and turn it over to prepare the area for soil-building materials such as leaves, manure, and garden soil. We would like to be ready to plant this spring. This garden will provide fruits and vegetables for Samaritan’s table meals, area food kitchens, and other needy folks in our community. God gives all of us special talents and He is pleased when we use those talents to help others. This is a chance for you to honor God by doing something you enjoy. If you would like to help, let Ted Brown know.
