Thank you to all who participated in the drive. We made around $70. We are continuing the drive in a different format. Soon, there will be a large garbage can near the door in the chapel area. You can drop off your cans and bottles in there or you can take them down to Ravena to “Cents for Cans” (on the right just before the first traffic light in Ravena) and tell the person there that the bottles and cans are for the First Reformed Church of Bethlehem. The store will keep track of the donations. This will give our church the opportunity to help us meet our budget. You can also let friends and family know we are doing this fundraiser. All donations are appreciated!

Here we are, not quite halfway through summer. Time for an update on our current renovation fund drive. Good news is, we are nearly a third of the way of reaching our annual goal of $20,000 and still almost half the year to go!

Keep in mind, with a strong finish to end the year, we will be well on our way to paying off the loan in 2024. We can only ask, please give what you can, every little bit helps towards reaching our 2023 goal of $20,000!

We invite you to visit the FRCB labyrinth. It has been freshened up, complete with a new bench. Thank you very much, Sue Jordan, for this new sitting bench!


Come walk the labyrinth and find solace and insight into your next steps on your spiritual journey!
