At Bethlehem, we are passionate about serving each other and those around us. There are many opportunities to serve both within and beyond the walls of the church. We encourage every member to find a place to use their talents for God's glory.

New Hampshire Mission Partnership 2022

“‘But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.’ (Acts 1:8 KJV) On Sunday May 15, 2022, three men from our church boarded a plane and headed to “our” Judea and Samaria. Their destination? Bedford, New Hampshire, a small town in the South-Central region of the state. They went to assist New Hope Christian Fellowship with a small construction project in their new sanctuary. Specifically, their mission was to construct a platform, stairs and handrails to accommodate a wheelchair lift that would allow access to a portion of the facility at a higher elevation than the sanctuary. Planning for this trip began a couple months earlier when two men from our church went to assess their needs and meet some members of the congregation. At this time, we met an elderly gentleman, Alan Goedecke, who was coordinating the construction. Alan explained that his greatest need was the construction of the platform. At the completion of the project when the team was readying to return home, they asked Alan if he was pleased with what was accomplished and he replied: “I thank God for all of you, but you know, I really never thought you would come.” Truthfully, as blessed as Bethlehem Baptist Church is, we could have easily collected enough money to send to New Hope to pay for the material and construction of this somewhat simple platform. But if we had, we, the team, and Bethlehem Baptist Church as a whole, would have missed out on the tremendous blessing of meeting some of God’s wonderful people as well as supporting and encouraging like-minded believers in Christ in an area that they described as “Post Christian.” As the team traveled from the Atlanta Airport back to Clarkesville later that week, they all agreed that the trip turned out to be as much, or perhaps more of a benefit and blessing to them as it was to Alan and Nancy Goedecke and the members of New Hope Christian Fellowship. The LORD truly works in mysterious ways! What a blessing it is to serve God in such a rewarding and meaningful way.”  If you’d like to get involved in missions at BBC, contact info@bbcofclarkesville.org!
