Daily from 10/19/2019 to 10/20/2019
Location: Bethany United Methodist Church - Austin, TX, 10010 Anderson Mill Road, Austin, TX US 78750
Our mission from God is a call in our lives for all seasons, and together we celebrate the abundance of opportunities we have to glorify God beyond the walls of Bethany through serving in the world. Make sure not to miss this year’s Missio Dei weekend on October 19-20.
Missions’ Teams will take over the Connection Corner Saturday and Sunday the 19th and 20th with mission work you can sign up for or do on the spot, collection bins to share your treasures for needful situations, and missionaries to talk with about how you can join in Bethany’s Missio Dei in any of several ways that we share Christ’s love in the world.
Visit the Connection Corner each weekend leading up to Missio Dei to leave donations and sign up in time for Austin Disaster Relief Network and Hands on Housing work!
