Since the pandemic hit, the H.O.M.E. meal committee and Bethel have been partnering with McDonalds and Culvers to provide meal vouchers for those in need. The vouchers are handed out on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 5-6pm at the Downtown Campus.

This year for the Thanksgiving H.O.M.E. meal, the Foster family, as they have done every year since 2006, will supply the turkey, gravy, and dressing for the meal that will be handed out in carryout boxes, from 5-6:30pm on Thursday, November 19 at the South door of Bethel's Downtown Campus.

BETHEL'S OPERATION HELP DRIVES | CHRISTMAS 2020

Operation HELP provides residents of St. Croix County with financial assistance, a place for personal support, and connections to community resources to alleviate short-term economic crises.

Bethel is again helping with two campaigns. The Giving Tree Campaign will help 30 kids, all registered with the Hudson school district. There will be trees with tags for each child's needs (clothing) and wants (gifts) at both Bethel Campuses. In addition to these requests, each child will also receive socks and underwear and each family will receive wrapping paper.

Because not everyone is comfortable being out and about, you have several options:

  • Click here to access Bethel's virtual giving tree. Choose an item (or two, or three . . .) and return it on or before November 25
  • After choosing a tag (in person or virtually) you have the option to do your shopping online and have the items sent to Bethel at 920 Third Street, Hudson, WI 54016 (Please note shipping times, so it arrives by November 25)

Other notes about the Operation Help Giving Tree Campaign:

  • For clothes, please include a gift receipt or consider a gift card from a local retailer.
  • The Downtown Campus is open 9 - 3, Monday - Friday.  
  • The Highlands Campus is only open (to grab a tag or to drop items off) to Preschool Families and Wednesday night class families.
  • All gifts must be to Bethel by Wednesday November 25

The Essentials Campaign will be collecting full size bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Last year over 100 sets were collected! Please drop shampoo & conditioner off at the downtown campus, (9 -3, Monday - Friday).

If you are not comfortable being out and about shopping, but would still like to help, please click here to make a donation. Choose Operation Help from the designation drop down menu.

HELPING HANDS MINISTRY

Helping Hands is a group of volunteers from Bethel that will try to fill occasional requests our members might need help with, such as giving a ride, moving a piece of furniture, fixing something, or so forth. If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this ministry (or if you have a request for help), please let Pastor Kris or Kim Evers know and they will add you to the list to serve!

FOOD DRIVE FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE IN ST. PAUL

Last week Bethel hosted a food/supply drive for our neighbors in need in St. Paul. AND WOW -- you responded quickly and generously! Donations filled the lobby area downtown and nearly $4000 was raised for additional supplies. Jake and Pastor Ladd delivered pallets of food and supplies last Friday and Saturday.

Jacob (Jake) Summerville, who leads High School Ministry here at Bethel, lives near the Midway and has been volunteering as his neighbors get back on their feet and the neighborhood begins to rebuild. 

Click here to get an overview what's happening at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in the Midway (where many of the supplies collected at Bethel went)
