Benevolences and Special Projects


BCMC budgets regular contributions to the following organizations as the church community’s commitment.  These commitments are coordiinated and recommended by the Witness Commission.  In a number of cases, e.g. Bethel College and Kidron Bethel Village, the amount is a symbolic amount since members of the congregation give a substantial amount individually.  In other cases contributions reflect significant volunteer time.  Others represent some of the core church values.
