Serving the community one meal at a time!

The church pantry serves families throughout our community. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, the church prepares food boxes for needy families from West Cheatham Elementary School. The boxes contains canned goods, instant potatoes, stuffing, ham, or turkey. If anyone knows of a family that needs a little help, contact the church, and we will be glad to send some food their way!

In addition, Bethel church member Pam Brown is in charge of the FUEL program at West Cheatham Elementary. Every Friday, students from the school receive a bag of food for the weekend. The bag includes child-friendly items students can open themselves (juice boxes, little Debbie™ cakes, fruit snacks, fruit cups, etc.). Each child in the program receives 16 items in a bag for two-day weekends and 24 items for three-day weekends. Over fall and spring breaks, they receive three bags—enough food for nine days.
