Summer Sports Camp, July 24-28, 9:00 AM to 12:15 PM, ages 4-12. Bethel is joining with First Baptist Church to offer a Christian-based sports camp that will be in lieu of our Vacation Bible School. The cost is $50 per child, but Bethel has agreed to pay $25 for each child at the time of registration. If you are interested in your child participating, please contact the church office (843-549-7691) to get your child signed up so we will know how many children will be attending from Bethel. Register your child at the church office by  July 20, along with your $25 check made payable to Bethel UMC. We will have more information and a registration form available next week.

The playground door into the church will now be locked after 9:00 am. Please use the office door in the breezeway. This change will improve safety for the children. Parents may still pick up their children at the playground door.

Bethel UMC business cards are available in the Narthex for anyone to distribute around Walterboro. Take as many as you think you can share with others.
