Feel free to reach out to any committee member with questions. What an exciting chance to share God's love in motion! 


SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED 
 
There are many urgent requests for quilts AND KITS around the world, including:
  • Refugees and children escaping conflict in Ukraine and Middle East
  • Orphans and the elderly in Tanzania
  • Poor communities devastated by earthquakes and floods in Turkey and Morocco
  • Street children at risk of being drawn into gangs in Honduras
  • People in Africa and elsewhere living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other devastating illnesses

WE CAN HELP Lutheran World Relief (LWR) and Global Health Ministries (GHM) respond as the intensity of humanitarian needs increases worldwide.  Thanks to the dedication and generous contributions of many, the Women of Bethel have been assembling much-needed Quilts, Personal Care Kits, Fabric Kits, School Kits and Hospice Kits throughout the year.  Bethel will have special dedication services Sunday, November 12 to bless these Quilts and Kits for Lutheran World Relief and Global Health Ministries.  To help ensure that these items reach those who need them most, a special offering will be taken during the dedication services for Lutheran World Relief Quilt and Kit Shipping Fund and Global Health Ministries.  Please consider supporting these special mission projects.  For more information about Lutheran World Relief, visit their website at www.lwr.org; and for Global Health Ministries, go to www.ghm.org.

Bethel partners with Iringa, Tanzania churches, Cathedral and Wilolesi. This partnership includes periodic trips to the area, visits to Bethel from Tanzanians.

TANZANIA SCHOLARSHIP

We would like to thank everyone for the contributions received in 2023 for the Tanzania Scholarship Fund. Because of your generosity, over 30 students received assistance with their school expenses. During a visit to Tanzania in 2023, the Bethel mission group visited with several students supported by Bethel members, who attend diocese schools, and had a meaningful time conversing and praying with the about their plans once they have completed secondary school. They offer you their gratitude for your assistance in their education and want you to know that they are praying for you. You are truly making a difference in their lives and the lives of their families.

The scholarship for each student remains at approximately $450/year. However, donations in any amount are welcome. Contributions are held in the scholarship fund at Bethel and the number of students supported depends on the money in the fund. Your donation can be made by check payable to Bethel Lutheran Church. Please make a note on the memo line of your check that this is for the Tanzania Scholarship Fund. Your check may be mailed to Bethel Lutheran Church, 920 Third Street, Hudson, WI 54016. Donations are also accepted online for the Tanzania Scholarship Fund here
