Ruth Circle

This multi-generational group of women is involved in missions, member care, and fund-raising for church projects. Their spring and fall rummage sales are as much of a community service as a fundraiser! Their soup sales are very popular!

Bethel Book Club

A group of women who meet on the 4th Monday of each month during the school year (excluding December.) They gather at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the current book over dessert. This group is open to women of all ages. Contact: Paula McManus.

The Chancel Choir

Volunteers from 7th grade and up, blend their voices for Sunday morning services.  Practice is Tuesday at 7pm. A love of making a joyful noise in praise of the Living God is the only requirement for participation.  Music director Karen King at 724-339-3938 is the contact for this activity.

Loaves & Fishes

Jesus cared for the body as well as the spirit when he fed the 5000.  Bethel provides membership care through home-cooked meals, transportation to appoinments, phone calls just to check in, light handy-person activities, etc. Diane Moran coordinates this ministry. 

Needles of Love

Prayer quilts and blankets are the speciality of this group. They sew or craft throws to warm the legs - and the spirits - of members and friends who are going through cancer-treatments, grieving the loss of a family members, or other traumatic event.  Kathy Schall is  the contact for this program.
