Summer Mission

 

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

 

Broken Bow, OK

Several students from Bethel spent a week serving churches in the Choctaw Presbytery of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church during the last week of June 2013. These churches are located within the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The Choctaw Nation is an American Indian tribe that is federally recognized by the United States government and consists of ten and a half counties in southeastern Oklahoma.

Students participated in light construction projects and outreach events. Construction projects included scraping and repainting a church. Outreach events consisted of leading a vacation bible school (VBS) where students led worship with singing and sign language, performed skits, and shared their personal testimonies.

Plans are being made to make this an annual summer mission trip.
