Back by popular demand, we’re repeating this Bible study on how we as Christians can work for unity across races.
If you are interested in learning more about what the Bible says about diversity and racism, and how we can seek justice and reconciliation, please join us for a 6-week Bible study based on the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s “Facing Racism: A Vision of Intercultural Community“.
- Study facilitators:
- William Starks: A longtime Bel Pres church member, William brings a lot of personal experience and wisdom on this topic. He looks forward to sharing these valuable resources widely.
- Alyssa Caulley: Alyssa facilitated the first round of this study as a way to learn and personally grow in this area. She was incredibly blessed by the study community and call to work in this area.
- Come at 6:00 for pizza (or bring your own food) and a community meal with others from Bel Pres.
- There is free childcare available and elementary program happening at the same time!
RSVP: Email Alyssa (email@example.com) to RSVP to receive materials/announcements.

Where is all the food going?
Come join hundreds of people of all ages and abilities as we measure, weigh and pack meals for the people of Mokpangumba, Sierra Leone. We work in teams, assembly-line style, making friends, learning about the people we are feeding, and learning how we grow when we serve others and share what we have. BelPres partners with Children of the Nations, following best practices on international food aid. Mokpangumba is home to about 300 families, and 75% of the residents are women and children. The meals we pack will help families who are unable to grow enough food to feed their children. To read more about COTN’s work in Mokpangumba, click here. Childcare will be available at the morning session only for children 3 months to 3 years of age by reservation at email@example.com. Preschoolers age 3 and up have important work to do at the Meal Packing Marathon and are encouraged to participate with their families.

The New Pilgrims by Joseph Castleberry
The Summer book clubs were a big hit so we are bringing them back on a monthly basis starting in February. We will pick one book each month to read and discuss. Come to one or as many as you like.
Please join us to discuss The New Pilgrims by Joseph Castleberry:
We often assume America needs to help immigrants, but in The New Pilgrims, Joseph Castleberry opens our eyes to how the opposite is true, immigrants are renewing America’s faith and values. Find out how we can join in one of the greatest spiritual movements this country has ever seen.

Calling all crafters (of ANY ability level)! Please join us for a fun family service project! The Bellevue Presbyterian Church Dolls with a Mission group is sponsoring a doll-making day! Open to kids in Kindergarten and up, and their families. Age level stations will be available for participants of any ability level to be a part of various aspects of making the dolls. We will guide you (and your adult partner) through all the steps necessary at your station to complete a portion of the dollmaking process. (Participants will be matched with dollmaking tasks that fit their skill level.)
Dolls created at this workshop will be part of a pool of dolls that get hand-delivered around the world or to local service organizations. In the past, these dolls have been sent to such countries as Guatemala, Rwanda, and Bolivia!
Feeling extra “crafty?” Volunteer to help run a station (training provided), contact Ruth Bacha email@example.com
