Converting to LED bulbs at Bethlehem
In our goal to make our church as energy efficient as we can, the Green Team has been planning to replace the inefficient fluorescent tubes in the church with energy efficient LED bulbs, using proceeds from our Shredding Events
to fund this project.
This year, with the help of Bob Smith acting as Trustee liaison with the Green Team, the research has been done and the bulbs and supplies needed for the conversion have been purchased. We are ready for a workday.
Dates we’re looking at are Monday August 16, Thursday August 19, or Saturday August 21. The process is simple, and no special skills are needed. Some will work on ladders; others will hand supplies up.
If you are interested in helping, please email Ann Marie Smith and indicate which day works best for you.
Happy Birthday to YOU!
Helping Community Kids with School Supplies
There are two ways you can help provide school supplies for the children at Lake Christian Ministries:
  • Donate $20 for elementary school supplies or $30 for middle/high school supplies (write check to LCM with "school supplies" on memo line)
  • Donate a back pack (drop off at Bethlehem UMC)
Thanks for supporting our children!
Outreach Opportunity with MSAV August 21 and 22
On August 21-22, the MS Alliance of Virginia is hosting a Respite for folks with MS and their caregivers at the 4-H Skelton Center in Wirtz. They are looking for any pontoon boat owners who would be willing to volunteer an hour or two that weekend to give lake tours to some of these folks who rarely get a chance to be on the water, let alone see a gem of this lake we call home.

If you are able to help, please email Dianna Weiner
or call (607) 760-8311. Thank you for considering this
important outreach opportunity!
