The Smoke Has Cleared – The Fund-Raising Must Begin

Easter 2006

June 25, 2007

Insurance will cover, at best, half of what is needed to build a new Bethany Christian Church. It is estimated that $400,000 to $500,000 will have to be raised in addition to the insurance proceeds to replace the 7,200 square feet of space that was destroyed.

Donors can donate to Bethany’s new building fund securely through PayPal simply by clicking on the “Make a Donation” button at the top right of this page.

Donors also can make checks payable to Bethany Christian Church with a memo to designate the funds to Rebuild the Church, for which a separate bank account has been established. Send donations to Bethany Christian Church, PO Box 156, Arapahoe, NC 28510-0156.

Easter Follows Good Friday

A recurring theme in Gary Edge’s words from the altar has been the observance that God provided Easter Sunday following the tragic events of Good Friday.

Sara and Simon Spalding are pictured above performing at the wedding of Carolyn Broughton and Ben Casey against a backdrop of the rubble left after the tragic Good Friday of Monday, June 25. Just as Carolyn and Ben begin life anew with the spirit of Easter, so does Bethany begin anew with the spirit of the resurrection of Easter.
