Cold Weather Shelter

CWS Hosted by Bethany UMC

January 20 – 28, 2019

The Cold Weather Shelter (CWS) – a partnership between Grassroots, the faith community and the Howard County Government – serves homeless individuals and families during the winter. From November through March, congregations host the program in their facilities from 6PM to 7AM and provide transportation, meals, overnight accommodations, laundry and shower services, and fellowship to guests. Most importantly, through our actions we share the love of Christ.

Connexion Pointe Class connect with Bethany Oct 28


October 28th 12:00-4PM

Our primary aim at ConneXionPointe! is not just for you to ‘become a member’. Rather, we want to help you consider if connecting with the Bethany Family is the next step for you in your spiritual journey. You will learn about how to grow as a follower of Jesus here at Bethany. You will receive practical help connecting with new friends in a G.I.F.T. Group and finding a ministry area – a place of service in which you will experience great joy. Join us for this 4-hour investment in your faith development!!!
