Bethel Church supports, with finances, personal assistance and prayer, more than a dozen missionaries and agencies. In addition, because of the intensity of our ability to physically participate in their ministries, we have ministry focuses and encourage our people to join with:
Push The Rock Sports Ministries —
Four of our church members are currently full-time missionaries with Push The Rock, using sports to challenge young people both here in the Lehigh Valley and around the world. Our opportunities to assist range from stuffing envelopes at the corporate office in Emmaus to coaching at local sports camps to going on overseas trips to take the message of Christ. For more information about this sports ministry, please go to the Push the Rock webpage.
TEAM – Czech Republic —
Ten years ago, Bethel Church searched God’s leading to join whole-heartedly in an international mission endeavor where we could send missionaries, where we could send work teams, and where we could make a significant impact for Christ. Today, Ondrej and Melissa Zikanovi, members of Bethel, are our missionary partners in Prague, Czech Republic, working in a new church-plant in men’s and women’s ministries. Bethel partners with the Zikanovis by sending teachers for their English camps and going to assist in their very successful summer “LeGo Camps.” These trips are open to men, women and teens…and bring a unique connection between Emmaus and the Czech people.
Operation Christmas Child —
Bethel Church is a key part of Samaritan’s Purse shoebox ministry. Each year, throughout the year, we collect and pack items to place in shoeboxes that are sent all over the world, impacting the lives of millions of children in poverty-stricken countries. We are blessed to be able to have packing parties and to have many of our church family deeply involved. For more information, please visit our Operation Christmas Child webpage.
