Although we had hoped to celebrate in person with a picnic celebration to highlight the launch of our mission into its 125th year of serving others, we are happy to be able to celebrate with you virtually!
This celebratory fundraising experience is driven to help amplify Bethesda’s mission and ministry through raising funds to benefit our chaplaincy program and spiritual life for all of those served by Bethesda.
How can you get involved?
Go “Apple” picking!
The “fruit of the spirit” surrounds us and one way is through our orchard of “Apple Envelope Trees” that you will find in the following locations:
Each tree is decorated with 100 “apple envelopes” that have a number associated with them. When you select that envelope you are committing to supporting the chaplaincy program and spiritual life of Bethesda through Bethesda Foundation with that corresponding dollar amount. Each tree offers the opportunity to witness a beautiful demonstration of what a collective purpose can be and if the tree is completed its value is $5,050! Example: If you select envelope #18 you are asked to place $18 in the envelope. Envelopes can be returned to any church office or Bethesda’s front desk.
