Local Outreach at Bethany North
Local Outreach at Bethany North exists to shine a light into our community by meeting people in their places of need and walking with them toward mutual growth and healing. These ministries seek to encourage and inspire our church members to a lifestyle of sharing God’s love in their everyday lives and to building bridges between the social and cultural divides in our community.
COMMUNITY BREAKFAST ON AURORA
Our mission is to be people who exist to shine a light into our community by meeting people in their place of need and walking with them toward mutual growth and healing through relationship and hospitality. One way of doing this is by serving breakfast once a month on Tuesday. We want to encourage you to join the Community Breakfast on Aurora team as we share God’s love and strive to build bridges between the social and cultural divides in our community. Contact Pastor Raoul Perez.
