AXIA Shop Donation Drive

Where: Bethel Downtown
Missions

We're once again asking for donations for the AXIA Shop's annual diaper drive. The AXIA Shop is located in Tyler and helps to serve expectant families and as part of the ministry of Living Alternatives. They help to meet practical needs by giving away baby items such as clothing, diapers, wipes, feeding supplies and more! Women can earn points to spend in the shop through things like attending their doctors appointments, mentor classes, and childbirth classes. They can spend their points on items whenever they are in need, up until the child is 2 years old. They help meet a practical need while building relationships and showing the love of Jesus, and we get to be a part of it!

You can check the list to see what's needed. We'll be accepting donations in the 2nd floor lobby for the entire month of June. If you have any questions, contact elizabethcroe@gmail.com.

The Exodus Workshop

Where: Bethel Downtown
Bethel Kids

Bethel Downtown is excited to be hosting The Exodus Workshop this summer! Elementary students are invited to spend the mornings of July 12-15 from 8:30 AM - 12 PM exercising their creativity as story makers as we journey through the story of the Exodus. We will adventure into the stories together, explore elements such as characterization, setting, and themes, and then practice telling others about these stories by helping the kids put on a play of the story for their parents on Friday! There will be games, crafts, snacks, and lots of fun as we combine learning about the Bible with theatrical instruction from local artists. Kids will not be forced to act and have many opportunities to help with technical elements as well, so there's something for everyone.

Please note that since this is a workshop for elementary aged students, basic classroom skills such as following directions and going to the bathroom independently are needed. Helpers will be available to assist with reading, so low reading skills are a-okay! You can contact ashley@bethelbible.com with any questions. We hope to see you there!

WAYS YOU CAN PRAY:

1.) Pray for the college interns, Wendy and Lizzie, as they help lead the college program this summer. Pray God blesses them with innovation and fruit as they help the team learn how to better introduce students to Jesus. Please also pray their personal faith would deepen and they would see God's power at work.

2.) Pray for the summer development program. They are piloting a program to help new Christians grow in the essentials, get connected to a local church, and grow as leaders. Pray the Lord would bring 15 students!

3.) Please pray for a student, Samuel, who is becoming more and more curious about Jesus. Pray God would move in His life and through those ministering to him.

4.) Please pray for the fundraising efforts this summer. Their hope is to hire a student in the fall but the funds are need to do so.

5.) Please pray for their leadership would continue to be attentive to God's voice.
