Bethlehem Church strongly believes in the positive impact a Christian summer camp experience can have on the spiritual, emotional and physical development of both children and families. This belief has led us to create a scholarship fund with the goal of enabling individuals or families which would not otherwise be able, because of financial constraints, to participate in a summer camp experience.
The scholarship application period for 2017 has ended.
Bethlehem Church seeks to address specific financial needs within the congregation and the community at large. To do so, Bethlehem has established a Benevolence Committee which oversees distributions from its Deacon’s Fund. Assistance is available to Bethlehem Church congregants and the local community, giving priority to those within the congregation.
Direct disbursements are made to provide for the basic necessities of life, including, but not limited to: housing, utilities, transportation and medical care.
