THE BETHANY SWEET STOP
Your help is needed!
School has started and Fall is quickly approaching. And with Fall comes Halloween! Bethany Lutheran Church is once again hosting the “Sweet Stop” for the children and families in our community. This is a wonderful community outreach opportunity to share the Light and Love of Jesus with others. Do YOU have some fun ideas for the Sweet Stop? A “Sweet Stop” committee is being formed, and we want YOU to be a part of it! Look for a sign-up sheet on the Faith-in-Action bulletin board, along with information regarding our first meeting date. If you have any questions, contact Jamie Blume!
SEPTEMBER "LOVING SPENCER" PROJECT
It’s back-to-school time! What a perfect opportunity to perform a random act of kindness! This month our theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students —inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, their futures. We would like to celebrate teachers and deliver our thanks and gratitude to them.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Teachers are straight-up awesome! Unfortunately, their classroom supply budgets are not. Rather than let their students go without basics like pencils and notebook paper, many teachers spend their own money on school supplies for their classrooms.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Purchase school supplies to donate to a teacher, class or school. Examples would be as follows:
Clorox Wipes Crayons
Hand Sanitizer Colored Pencils
Pencils Whiteboard markers
Erasers Two pocket folders
Notebooks Glue/Glue sticks
Loose-leaf paper Binders
- Take items directly to your child’s teacher, to a classroom, school office, or a guidance counselor.
In Spencer, there are three elementary schools: Johnson (724 West 9th Street), Fairview (1508 5th Avenue East) and Lincoln (615 4th Avenue SW), and Spencer Middle School (1400 10th Avenue East) and Spencer High School (800 East 3rd Street).
- Pray for teachers, administrators, support staff & students as they begin the 2017-2018 school year.
Let the September Kindness Explosion Begin!

Do you have some shoes in your closet that you don’t wear anymore? We are helping “Soles 4 Souls”, a program through Village NW Unlimited in Sheldon, by collecting shoes that have wear left in them.
