    Bethel Happenings
    (updated May 13, 2022)

    Roane County Cooperative Ministries invites our Roane County friends to celebrate Pentecost the "Church's Birthday" at Fort Southwest Point from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. We hope many Bethel friends will attend.

    Festive food will be provided and activities for children will include face painting and a bounce house. The highlight of the day will be musical performances at the park amphitheater by groups from county churches and other performers.

    Of course, volunteers from Bethel have been essential to RCCM's work for 30 years. And, once again, we will welcome efforts and energy from any of you who can help us oversee the many activities and fulfill responsibilities that will make this event fun and successful.

    Volunteers can work from 3:30-6, 5:30-8, or for the entire event. Contact Mark Banker for more details.  

    In light of new CDC guidelines and declining case numbers in Roane County, our COVID protocols have been revised.

    • The following protocols became effective starting late afternoon on Sunday, March 20.

    • Masks will now be optional inside the building. However, our strong preference is that, for your own protection, those of you who are unvaccinated will continue to wear masks.

    • Food may be served inside the building. Those serving food should wear masks and gloves.

    • For the time being, the offering will continue to be collected with ushers coming to each side of the pew instead of passing the plate. However, other items – such as palm branches for Palm Sunday – may be passed out.

    • Remember: Please worship from home if you don't feel well. And, please continue caring for yourselves and one another.


    For the month of May our focus foods are Canned Meat (Tuna, Chicken, Spam).

    These and other non-perishable food items can be brought in throughout the month and placed in the HOME collection basket in the Gathering Area.

    Thank you for supporting our local food pantry efforts to help needy families in our community.  

    a daily devotional, for
    April, May, and June

    is available on the table in the Gathering Area. Be sure to pick one up today.

    "To nurture the daily practice of prayer and the reading of Scripture, there is solid help in the pages of These Days. The devotions wrestle faithfully with the doubts, joys, and challenges of the Christian life."
