Like to bake? One Saturday each month from July through October, Bethany participates in the Aurora Farmers' Market. Baked goods and other yummy items is a fun way of reaching the community.
From September through May, those 50 and older are invited to a monthly luncheon at the church. But the fun doesn't end with lunch. There is always some kind of program afterwards, be it a musical group, a magician, a presentation of some sort, or even our version of bingo!

This is a small group ministry for those who like to get your hands dirty. They plant a small garden in the back of hte church property which had been designed by one of our Eagle Scouts. Maintaining and harvesting the garden is a fun way to watch the miracle of God provide food. Also, flower beds and pots require some tender loving care and those who provide their green thumbs are rewarded with a way of praising God for his blessings.
