Neighborhood Gathering Events

Join us at Bethesda for special dinners followed by family fun! We open our church in a fun and family-oriented way to everyone who lives around us to join us for fellowship, food and fun! Each Neighborhood Gathering features a meal (don’t eat before!), a fun family activity, and other activities for kids and adults, plus lots of new friends to meet and get to know!

In the past, we have had a family movie night with icy summer treats, a Halloween Harvest Party with spooky finger foods, a chili cook-off with prizes, and a huge Thanksgiving feast for the whole neighborhood! We try to bring the Bethesda community something new and fun to enjoy with their loved ones! So many memories are made at these events, and we would really love if you could join us.

We’re sending out an invitation to everyone we can in the surrounding area. We aren’t targeting anyone of a certain income level, just ANYONE who thinks it might be nice to have dinner and fun activities for their family in a safe and welcoming environment. If you want to bring your creative juices and contribute ideas, we would love it! We want this to be all inclusive. We want this church to be a beacon to our Bethel community…a place where all feel welcome even if they don’t show up on Sundays.

Join us on Sunday, October 30th, from 4-7 pm for Bethesda’s Trunk or Treat & Harvest Party! This is a safe, family friendly event. Everything will be outside and socially distanced. There will be FREE pizza, drinks, and treats! Also games and lots of fun surprises. Shaved ice and cotton candy will be available for purchase.

“Trunk or Treat” the cars that are giving out candy, get a couple of slices of pizza and a drink and celebrate safely at Bethesda. RSVP so we know how much pizza to buy!

Please RSVP if you want to attend the event and participate in the fun!
