Bring a game you’d like to share, bring soda to share, bring a friend, or just bring yourself – we’ll have a bunch of games here – maybe you’ll learn new one! Questions? Ask Pastor Dave.
15th Annual Sweetheart Banquet, February 10, 2018, 5:30-8:00 p.m. (Fellowship Hall)
The Family Ministry of Bethany Baptist is hosting its 15th Annual Sweetheart Banquet on February 10 this year. We’ll start with our pot-trust dinner, followed by viewing Part 2 of Focus on the Family’s “Date Night Challenge” program. It presents information, activities to instruct, inspire and provoke some insights about marriage. All couples are asked to bring a wedding photo and one other photo from their married life… it can be amusing, happy, exciting… anything you’d like to share with your friends at the dinner.
A $20/couple donation either ahead of time or at the door is requested to help defray program costs of this self-funded ministry.
Basketball for all ages, Picketball (limited number) and Group Ride class (stationary bikes) led by Karin Bump. $5 fee per family. Meet at the gym and bring your sneakers to change into and be prepared to fellowship and exercise!
