Sunday, February 14, 2021 - Update

Dear Bethany Family and Friends,
Happy Valentine's Day - and Ice Day. The trees certainly look beautiful while covered with ice, but they also warn us of danger on the road. Please note that we have moved our in-person worship service this morning to ONLINE ONLY starting at 11AM. Please join us and worship with us from the safety of your home. I am hopeful that my weather app, as of today, shows 'mostly sunny' and 49F high for next Sunday! May the Lord keep you safe and blest.  - Pastor Kori



Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - The Bowman Family Update

Dear Bethany Family and Friends,

As I’m writing this update on Wednesday afternoon, the results of the compassionate and generous hearts of so many from both near and far speak for themselves.  Jesse, Mary and Delaney are profoundly grateful and they know that they are living the promise (Matthew 6:25-34) – they are fed, clothed, sheltered and loved.   Arrangements have been made to provide dinner for them each night for the next couple of weeks.  They were able to save their vehicles from the fire, so transportation is covered.   Through your wonderful generosity, on Monday we were able to purchase a laptop and all office supplies necessary for them to get back online and be connected to the world.  This is essential for working through the insurance process, staying connected with family and friends, and school work.  Presently, they are asking to hold off on any more clothing and household items, until they will know their housing situation for certain.  However, if you would like to contribute financially, you may do so by sending a check made out to:  ‘Mary Bowman’ and mailing it to:  P.O. Box 268, Heathsville, VA 22473.   We are also available to collect it from you and deliver it to the Bowman family directly. 


All of these things free Jesse and Mary up to begin working through the tragic loss they have experienced and to attend to the complex process of insurance claims, finding a more permanent place to stay, clean up, running Lilly Wood Ranch, and planning ahead for the future.  For further information or questions, please contact either Anna Kissne at 804.580.0529  or  Jennifer Pugh at 804.450.3193.  Beauty out of ashes!  Pastor Kori
