GRIEF SUPPORT
GRIEF SUPPORT

Mt. Bethel offers three series of Grief Support programs throughout the year, alternating between the GriefShare program and Navigating Your Journey through Grief. Each group is open to all adults.

While weekly attendance is recommended, a person may attend whichever meetings he/she is able to and can begin attending at any point during the series. The GriefShare program is a 13-week educational grief support group designed to help individuals constructively deal with their grief following the death of a loved one. This series begins each April and October. Navigating Your Journey through Grief is a 7-week educational grief support workshop and starts in January.

Support Group offerings are posted here.

Please contact Kim McGarr if you have any questions.

SONSHINE SUPPERS

Proverbs 11:25 states, “He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”

If someone has ever shown up at your door with dinner, then you know what a special gift it is. Sonshine Suppers is a ministry that allows those who love to cook to bring love and comfort to someone within the body of Christ. Taking part in this meal delivery ministry gives you an opportunity to not only receive a blessing, but also be a blessing. If you are interested in occasionally planning, cooking, and/or delivering a meal to someone in need, please sign up below, or contact Kim McGarr.

Any active meal needs are posted here.

DEAF MINISTRY

We are currently on pause for live ASL interpretation; we anticipate this ministry feature to resume soon.

We encourage those within the community who hear with their eyes to join us in worship and grow with us in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our ASL fellowship will resume when possible.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Rev. Kim McGarr, 678.560.7237. Also, if you are trained in sign language and would like to volunteer your interpretative skills at one of our services or events, please let Rev. McGarr know.

CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Do you have news to share with the Mt. Bethel community? If you have an item that you think might belong in the “Joys and Concerns” section of our weekly bulletin, please submit it to Kim McGarr or Glenn Ray. In addition to major life events, such as births, marriages, hospitalizations, and deaths, we’d like to hear about special accomplishments, such as Eagle Scout, college graduation, or any other honors.

If you are going through a rough financial patch, the Mike Sappington Helping Hands Fund may be able to provide short-term assistance. When circumstances allow, our Handy Helpers perform basic home repairs for people who can’t do it themselves.

Please reach out to any of the ministers and let us know how we can help you, or how you can help others.
