Bethesda House has wonderful relationships with many of the South Shore’s churches. Together we have the common goal of helping women raise their children self-sufficiently through a loving relationship with God. Below are just come of the ways we work with churches to spread the word of Bethesda House. Please feel free to share any of these ideas with your church!
HOW YOUR CHURCH CAN HELP:
Invite Director Missy Porter to introduce Bethesda House to your church members:
The success of Bethesda House depends on the support of the local community. Our Directors would welcome the opportunity to introduce Bethesda House to the Church during an upcoming service or Mass.
Introduce Bethesda House to a women’s group or special focus group within the congregation:
Special focus groups have run fundraisers or brought volunteers to Bethesda house.
Include a bulletin/newsletter announcement or social media mention at any time seeking volunteers:
- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AT BETHESDA HOUSE
Bethesda House, located in Pembroke, is a temporary home for young mothers who come to live and grow in a loving relationship with God. They are linked with the necessary skills, knowledge, and resources to become self-sufficient. Volunteers are needed for evening care, babysitting while mothers attend bible study or childbirth classes, and for transportation to and from their schooling, doctor’s appointments, etc. There are opportunities for direct care volunteering to fit just about anyone’s schedule.

Include a bulletin/newsletter or social media mention at any time encouraging donations to Bethesda House:
