People Enjoying People (PEP)
This group works to demonstrate how the "Sunday experience" can be carried out into the weekday world. The members of the PEP Team represent the Bethel congregation as they reach out with love and concern to persons with special needs.
Focus of the ministry is in five areas:
- Nursing Home Residents
- Hospitalized Members
- First-time Visitors
- New Members
Visits to these people serve as vivid reminders that we are all part of God's family, That we "belong." To become a part of this special group, please contact Nat McCartha at 803-345-2813.
