At First Bethel, we put our faith in action by serving in a variety of local, regional and international outreach activities. If you have a few hours, a day, or a week to give, we have a place for you to plug in.

Appalachia Service Project (ASP)
Our mission is to build relationships and help make homes warmer, safer and drier. In 2022 we served in Fayette County, West Virginia and stayed in the town of Ansted.  Our projects included insulating a home in preparation for new windows and doors, and replacing a bathroom floor and tub on another home.   Our theme was “Rooted in Love” based on John 15:4   “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”  We’re already looking forward to our next trip to Central Appalachia!
