Bethany Blesses those in Need

Aiding Afghan Refugees
Aiding Afghan Refugees

The first refugees from Afghanistan have arrived in the Maryland-Virginia-DC area this week . After an oppressive 20-year war against the Taliban, families escaped with only the shirt on their backs.

The Bethany community gifted teacups, dinner plates, and hygienic masks to welcome our new Afghan friends. Bethany United Methodist Church joins the wide-reaching interfaith and private effort to help these families establish their new homes in our area.

Our message: You are welcome here.

Additional ways to Help Afghanistan

SERVING THOSE IN NEED LOCALLY

Through partnerships and initiatives with organizations that care for the most vulnerable, Bethany seeks to make our community better in every way. From providing overflow shelter to the homeless during the winter, feeding the hungry by helping to harvest fresh fruits and vegetables, or providing free home repairs to low-income families , Bethany is deeply involved in the community and committed to making a difference. Through these and other projects, we believe God will use our simple acts of kindness to bring others closer to Him.

SERVING FAMILIES

Bethany strives to provide hope and support to families, both locally and abroad. Whether through the provision of camperships or delivering a gift and a message of love to children on behalf of their parent in prison, Bethany seeks to surround families in crisis with caring, compassionate community.

SERVING INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS

Whether providing supplies for medical mission trips, supporting the lives of families in need via livestock donations, or packaging meals to help alleviate world hunger, Bethany is doing extraordinary things in the name of Jesus so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love in tangible ways.
