History Project Needs Memories!

Church Historian Shirley Ensley wants your memories! The history committee is preparing a display for homecoming that will include an I remember when… collection.

Perhaps you have childhood memories of Bethany, or remember stories told by parents or grandparents. Please share your memories with a sentence, a paragraph or a short story. Also, photographs of the church building–inside or outside–are needed.

Shirley asks that everyone participate, whether long-time or short-time members or attendees. All have memories to share.

Please provide your memories to Shirley or Roger Ensley, Clara Ensley or Floyd Hardison, or drop your memories by the church office.

Arapahoe Free Will Baptist Church Sends Thanks Along with Donation

Terry Cannan received the following note:

Dear Christian Brothers and Sisters,

We wish to thank all of you for your participation in the fundraiser. Some brought cookies out for us to use, some stayed up all night with my husband cooking pigs, some of you came out to help chop the pigs and others helped in serving and clean-up. Many of you came out to buy plates, thank each of you for your support. We share in your loss and hope that our efforts whelped in your goal to rebuild your church building.

In Christian love,
Donna Altman and the Arapahoe FWB Church Family

This note was accompanied by a check for more than $7,000.00 in proceeds from the barbecue plate fundraiser sponsored by Arapahoe FWB Church.
