bethanybreakfastYesterday, members of the New Church of Montgomery helped serve breakfast to the guests of Bethany House Services. Pancakes, chicken sausage, and orange juice were brought to share with the moms and kids who make their temporary home at Bethany House. (Eggs have been requested for next time!)  It is a small thing to do to be in community with women at a time in their lives when they are experiencing homelessness.

Other services are provided to the women who live at Bethany, including money management classes, nutrition classes and yoga, among others. The women attend classes at the house in the evening, and childcare is provided during the sessions.

In the fall, The New Church of Montgomery will be holding its Fourth Annual Toy Swap and Bake Sale to provide toys and money to the women and children of Bethany House. Please subscribe to our website via the Follow Button at the lower right hand corner of our site to be notified of the TBA date of the Toy Swap and of other exciting programs being offered by our church and the Glendale New Church, whose home we share.
