Breakfast at the Bistro

Breakfast is being served Monday through Friday from 7 to 9 a.m. in the Williams-Harris Fellowship Hall through Feb. 6. Funds will be used to help our youth at-tend various conventions, the next one being Black Heritage Weekend Feb. 13-15 in Jacksonville. Options include a $2 Holler and a $5 Standard Breakfast.


New in Your Pew

Prayer Request cards: “We believe in the power of prayer and will gladly pray for you and with you.”
Ask the Pastor cards: Write your questions about Scripture or biblical text, and Pastor Irby will ad-dress them during one of the Friday morning “After the Minute Conversation” on the prayer line. Fill out the cards and place them in the offer-ing plate. This is a courtesy of the Prayer Line Min-istry.

Students should be aware that now is the time to look for money to start or continue your college or vocational school plans. YPD Director Renee Brown has information about YPD opportunities. Parents, please see her about applications and deadlines.

Welcome to Bethel AMEC

The illustrious history of the AME Church is one rooted in faith. Originating in 1894, the heartbeat of "Methodist Town" was built in 1922. It is the first and oldest predominantly African American church in the city of St. Petersburg, FL and has taken many steps of faith. The AME Church is a tremendous anchor of hope in the Tampa Bay community.
