Help Local Kids Afford Prom

Lockland High School is doing a popcorn fundraiser to raise money for their students to be able to afford, and attend a great Prom. One of our members, Shannon Fischer is a teacher at Lockland, and this year’s Prom Chair!

This fundraiser lasts a limited time 2/21-2/25, so order your delicious popcorn flavors now! You can have them shipped anywhere in the US, or to US Military Personnel in the Americas, Europe or the Pacific!

Buttered Popcorn

Currently Lockland prom ticket prices are $25 a “pop” (a good price considering most local school proms are $60+ a student.) However, some kids are still not able to afford tickets at this rate. The more money that is raised, the lower tickets can become.

Share or support this “Double Good” fundraiser, today! Shannon and her students say “Thanks!”

Feeling salty about popcorn? Send a donation to the church with “popcorn” in the check memo, or contact us for Venmo directions.

Last day to order books for @BethanyHouseSvc!

Blue Manatee Book Event

You know that feeling when you are into a book and nothing else matters in the world. Well, you can help give a child that same care-free feeling when you buy a book from Blue Manatee Literacy Project.

Buy a book for yourself or a friend and one will be donated to a child experiencing homelessness and receiving shelter through Bethany House Services.

Don’t have time to pick out a book? $12 buys one book and Blue Manatee will pick it out for you. Finding ways to be useful can be tricky some days. This is one idea where you can combine love with wisdom. 15% off with code BETHANY at checkout. Local pickup available. Sale ends today —don’t delay, help today!

Buy-a-Book Event for @BethanyHouseSvc Ends 10/1!

Buy-a-Book Oct. 1-10 for Bethany House

Since October 1, we have been collaborating with Blue Manatee Literacy Project and Bookstore to promote a book buying endeavor. This is a unique sale in that the purchase of each book generates the donation of a book to a child staying with Bethany House Services, a child experiencing homelessness.

Please go to to purchase or donate books. Use code bethany at checkout to save 15% off your order. Books can be shipped to you, or picked up locally at Blue Manatee book store in Oakley.

This is a great and simple way to help children. Book sale ends October 10, 2021.
