RECOVERING FROM DEVASTATING FIRE! This historic African Methodist Episcopal Church was impacted by an early morning fire on December 13, 2017. “Bethel’s members and officers have been working diligently through the process of restoration. We have been told the building’s foundation is strong, so our hope is to restore the church interior. It will be a long process but we are continuing to be blessed by the support of the community and our AME church family.”

Lunch On Us is a collaborative project of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Coalition of Lebanon, OH, Inc.,  Bethel AME Church and Resurrection Lutheran Church. This fundraising effort has the support of Lebanon City Schools and helps to pay lunch fees for students who may not qualify for free or reduced lunch, but face financial challenges that have resulted in lunch debt. Children in this situation may have to eat a cheese sandwich instead of what the other children are given for lunch. This project aims to make sure every child is offered the same full school lunch daily.
