Missions opportunities are plentiful at New Bethesda. From our summer Vacation Bible School, which we call our “Mission to New Bethesda” to North American missions to places like Standing Rock, S.D., to overseas missions in places like Haiti, Ecuador, and Kazakhstan, New Bethesda’s mission footprint is outsized for a small rural church. If you join our New Bethesda family, we don’t offer you a comfortable pew, rather, we are blessed with an environment where the Holy Spirit challenges us to sacrifice, give, and go. Recently, Lisa Brown spoke to our congregation challenging us to spend just 2 percent of our year — seven days — in doing something missional outside the walls of our church. The church-wide mission to Bland County, Virginia, is an outstanding opportunity for anyone, even an entire family, to join in what God is doing both in our church and beyond.
