Nate and Marie will be at Mt. Bethel tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. participating in Jubilee. If you are attending the event, please be sure to stop by and say hi! They will have displays about Learn and Serve and our short-term mission trips, both of which Mt. Bethel participated in last year.

While preparing for the Fall Practicum, we realized that our Education Building needed some updating and maintenance. Our staff and a work team from Alexander City Methodist Church in nearby Alexander City, Ala., have “flipped” the interior in record time.

Since our longtime appropriate technology volunteer, Dale Fritz, recently moved, we turned his former workshop into the new library. Because we moved the library, our students now have two large classrooms to use this fall. The entire building was repainted from ceiling to baseboards, and new carpet was installed. We have also received donated computers for students to use during their training.

We’re still in the process of unpacking everything and getting it in order, but we now have a wonderful meeting space for groups using our facilities, as well as a large learning environment for our students this year.

Thank you to everyone who has given their time and support to this project!
