WBS Childcare Fundraiser
Since its inception in 1982, Bethel has been committed to the mission of equipping and discipling the people who walk through its doors. One of the most fruitful ways in which this has been done is through Women’s Bible Study. Over the years we have seen hundreds and hundreds of women grow in their relationship with the Lord through Bible study. Some have come to know the Lord for the first time in their lives, while others have deepened their faith in coming to see God’s revelation of Himself through His Word. Further byproducts of these Bible studies have been connection with one another in fellowship and prayer- and husbands and children coming to Bethel as a result. There are many families whose lives have been changed because of the wife or mother being involved in Bible study. This ministry has been missional, equipping, discipling and life changing.
One of the greatest blessings of Women’s Bible Study are intergenerational small groups that have formed because childcare was made available for mothers with young children. However, in the past few years we have seen a drop in the number of mothers with young children attending. We have also gone from free child care to requiring the mothers to pay.
How You can help!
The WBS Childcare Fund was established to minister to the women attending Bible Study in need of childcare. In 2018, we were able to surpass our financial goal of $11,700 and as a result, childcare was offered free of charge, and 150% more young mothers began attending Bible Study.
Because of the generous donations of our Bethel members, we are able to continue to providing childcare free of charge to all ladies attending Bible study at the South campus this semester! Beginning in August, registration fees for all women’s Bible studies will increase slightly from $30 to $50. A large portion of this fee will be applied toward our 2020-2021 fund to ensure childcare remains free next Spring.
Because childcare costs are continually increasing as more and more mothers begin participating, we would also ask you to consider a donation that will help further build our fund and ensure childcare remains fee for all women desiring to participate in Women’s Bible Study (e.g., a donation of $150 will cover childcare costs for a mother of three children for an entire semester).
