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.
