Bethany recognizes that as Christians, we are charged with responsible stewardship of our earth and ALL its inhabitants. And because pets often play an integral role in our lives and wellbeing, we understand that by supporting our animal companions, we also support and comfort their caregivers.
Bethany’s newest ministry, the Companion Animal and Earth Ministry (“CAEM”), was launched on October 7, 2018, with Bethany’s first annual Blessing of the Animals ceremony. Our mission is “to support companion animals and their caregivers in our community who are in need, and to encourage environmentally responsible practices within Bethany UCC.”
Because this ministry is still in its formative stage, our focus continues to evolve and develop around our core activities listed below. Our members are enthusiastic and dedicated, and we enjoy tremendous support from our leadership and our congregation. Won’t you join us as we grow into our mission?
