A major focus of our outreach ministry is stepping out into our community and leaving “Footprints of Love.” Eleven specific monthly servant events provide our members opportunity to help those in need.
Along with our planned monthly events, an annual mission trip to Haiti. Outreach efforts in Haiti have included providing Vacation Bible School, rebuilding roads and hurricane clean-up. This annual event has given opportunity to share the Gospel and develop relationship with those served.
General efforts includes providing information to visitors, planning special community events and marketing Suburban Bethlehem and its ministries to the community.
