Give thanks to the Lord this morning because He is the reason we are alive. If you do not know Him, ask Him to reveal Himself. He is all you need, and He stands knocking to enter into your heart.

Spotted: Mr. Moss, a Bethlehem Center graduate, giving back at the 10th annual Ooltewah UMC Fish Fry. Many of you know Mr. Moss as the owner and founder of MOSS PLACE, but did you also know that he grew up at the Bethlehem Center? Later, Mr. Moss began working at the Bethlehem Center. He made breakfast and lunch for the young men in the Bethlehem Center Boys Academy, and he began catering events, preparing meals in the Bethlehem Center's kitchen. Now in 2015, Mr. Moss spends his time catering out of his own space on 711 Tunnel Blvd. in Chattanooga. Last Tuesday Mr. Moss #gaveback by cooking the fish for the 10th annual fish fry! Thank you Mr. Moss, and thank you donors. Because of your generous support, countless men and women are walking faithfully with the Lord and many more are serving all over the world.

Aaron Williams (pictured to the right) is a Beth Center alumni and a Signal Mountain High School Football team member and 2015 graduate. The bubbly young man started coming to the Beth in the 3rd grade. The Beth taught Aaron how to read. Now, Aaron is heading to UT–Martin in the fall and wants to do something in the medical field. Thank you. Your financial support allowed Aaron to get the education he needed to excel academically and now he's off to school. One day Aaron may be the skilled surgeon operating on our loved ones. Thank you for supporting Aaron and so many others at the Beth Center.

Hey you, yes, You: Thanks for supporting the Read to Lead Summer Academy with prayers, donations, social media shares, and food donations. Your support is vital. This week alone, the kids got to work on a mural with Mark Making that will go on the Bethlehem Center building, learn chess, receive counseling, worship, work on reading and math comprehension, and so much more. The kids are "flexin'" because they know they're getting stronger every day. Thanks again! The Bethlehem Center

Greetings everyone!! It's day 1 of the V-Team orientation and the summer interns are already learning a lot. TJ Johnson from Front Porch Alliance talked to them about key issues ranging from gangs to the importance of team work. Most of our interns this summer come from Howard High School, but we have several from other schools. They have been chosen because they are already exemplifying character and leadership. Your financial support made this possible! Thank you for giving the summer interns access to intensive character and leadership training, work experience, the opportunity to be mentors, and the life-changing power of the Gospel.
