Bethlehem Baptist Church hosting summer program
Placeholder Image

Bethlehem Baptist Church is again playing host to the Youth Summer Enrichment Program.

The program will begin Monday and continue through July 15, running from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.

Directed by Genae Martin and Tasha Thomas, the program is open to ages 4 to 12 of all cultures and backgrounds.
While at the church, the children are given nutritious meals set by Drucilla Surratt and Dorothy Franklin.

They also can receive helped from certified, professional teachers who are serving as volunteers. Lessons are available in a variety of areas, including life skills, professions, health care and public safety.
The program began 28 years ago and was the first of its kind to offer free help to both members and non-members of the church community.

Minister Elizabeth Partridge-Godfrey and Pastor H.K. Benton, Jr. have found that many members of their congregation have volunteered to help over the years.
Children who cannot make it to the church are provided transportation by Deacon Archie Shepherd and Kathleen Perry.

For more information, contact Deborah Belcher-Jenkins, the registrar, at the church's main line: (770) 786-8229.
