Mission & Community Connections
OUR COMMITTEE IS FOCUSED ON MISSION, COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS AND EVANGELISM.
Join us in sharing our faith and support.
Foundry Village is the first tiny house transitional community for those affected by homelessness in Josephine County. Foundry Village is comprised of 17 tiny homes providing short-term housing for up to 34 people. Designed as a gated community, Foundry Village is a safe, supportive environment where participants are encouraged to reach their highest potentials. Participants work to address barriers so that they may further their progress from homelessness to long-term housing and self-sufficiency.
B Street Food Pantry
For many years Bethany has supported FISH, now the "B" St. Food Pantry, with food, money and volunteers. "B" St. Food Pantry is located at Newman United Methodist Church in Grants Pass.
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”
The Presbyterian Church (USA)'s four church-wide Special Offerings help share Christ's love with millions of people around the world.
