Good morning, all,

It's a packed week at Bethany with a blood drive taking place today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Tuesday, we have Men's Bible Study at 8 a.m. in the fellowship hall.

Then on Wednesday, we have FFF, where a record 32 people have signed up so far. Jim Rohrscheib and David Swartling will recount their recent trip to some of the countries on the Atlantic side of Africa. Don't miss this. Above are some images from The Gambia, taken by Rohrscheib.

See you then,

Rachel Pritchett, office administrator
