Long Range Planning Team meeting February 2
The Long Range Planning Team will be meeting on February 2, at 3:30 pm. This group had been meeting in 2020 before the pandemic shutdown. At that time, the team had been working on an outline for a new long range plan with input on goals from the Council on Ministries. On February 2, the team will be restarting the effort to develop this plan that will encompass all ministries at Bethlehem as well as a plan for discerning what new ministries we feel God may be leading us into as we continue in our vision to be "Outward Bound." In addition, we are looking for a volunteer to be the recording secretary for this team. This team member would take notes at the meetings, help with document updates and distribution when the plan is finished. If you are interested in being part of this strategic planning or have input to share, please email Rick Carroll.
United Methodist Men Meeting - February 8
The UMM meeting for February will be on the 8th at 600 pm. Dinner will be provided by Farmhouse Catering (Tuscan Chicken & Pork Roast). A $15 donation is suggested to defray the cost of the meal. The speaker will be Carol Moyer of Stepping Stone Mission. Stepping Stone Mission is also known as the soup kitchen in Rocky Mount that BUMC has been serving at once a month for several years. We will also have a short business meeting to approve the UMM 2022 budget. This includes selection of charities to receive donations from the UMM.
