Sunday, September 9
Rally Day Luncheon
Congregational Members, Families and Friends,
mark your calendars for Sunday September 9, 2018 as we celebrate the
beginning of a new Sunday School year. Immediately following our
11:15 am worship service, please plan to join us in the fellowship hall
where members of the Evangelism committee will provide delicious
sandwiches and drinks for us to enjoy. Please bring a side salad
or a dessert to share. It will help us to better prepare if you
could RSVP to this email or on the sheet located in the Narthex. Thank
welcome! Please share this information especially with those that do not
Trunk or Treat
Lutheran Church (Bethel Park)
(5303 Madison Ave., Bethel Park, PA 15102) will hold their
annual Trunk or Treat on Sunday, October 21 from
6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Bring your car, treats, costumes,
friends and neighbors. We will have a Howling Good time!
Young and old alike are invited to come have a hauntingly good time at
this fun fall event!
KIDS ~ Wear your costumes and bring your plastic pumpkins,
trick-or-treat bags or pillow cases to gather candy and treats from our
hosts as you parade through and around our church!
HOSTS ~ Please arrive at the church between 5:30 and 5:45 to setup and
be ready for the trunk-or-treaters who will visit beginning at 6:00 PM.
Decorated areas and costumes are not required, but add to the fun!
We recommend planning for at least 100 kids.
If you are interested in hosting a
"trunk", it's not too late to sign up. Also, if you can not
make it but would like to donate a treat to pass out, that is also
more than welcome. Contact Rich Dowell or sign up in the
narthex on the bulletin board to the far right.
This event is open
to the community! Invite your family and friends!
Groups that want to participate are welcome as well.

grand piano! The piano was donated and in memorial to Arlene MacDonald
who loved the music at Bethany.
BLCW SCHOOL KIT PROJECT
For the past two years, the women of Bethany have worked to supply
Lutheran World Relief with as many "school kits" as possible. With our
group cutting and sewing the book bags and your help with supplies
needed to fill them, we have been able to send 64 kits out to the
neediest children in the world. These little ones were able to walk to
school with their heads held high because we gave them the means to
learn. We're doing that again this year, but making it easier for
members of the congregation to help. We are NOT asking you to buy
anything. We'll do all that. All we need is a little money from you to
make this good thing happen. Please place donations in an envelope
marked "BLCW School Kits" and hand it to either Grenith Fisher or Sandy
Lutz. You may also leave envelopes at the church office, in our BLCW
Together, we can change the world for the better, one literate child at
a time. Thank you for helping!"
On May 25, 2017, we voted to
join the Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries (PLUM) for a one-year
trial membership, starting on July 1. PLUM will provide our pastoral leadership, but
we still need to perform the church 'office' functions, as well as
maintain our church building and grounds. Contact the church
office, if you need any pastoral care (wedding, funeral, hospital
