Our BLU campers had a blast at Booker T. Washington State Park! Thanks to the good weather they canoed, hiked, and made friendships for a lifetime. How are you enjoying these warm autumn days?
So thankful for social media shout-outs like this. Brett's post brings increased awareness about The Bethlehem Center to people we cannot reach. This simple act can bring in more volunteers, donors, and prayer partners to help the Beth reach more children and families in South Chattanooga. Please share your Beth experience with your social media followers. Thank you Brett Smalley State Farm!

This week is our leadership camp for the Bethlehem Leadership Unit (BLU) program. About thirty children in 7th - 12th grade are being empowered through fun activities that develop leadership, integrity, and entrepreneurship. The leadership camp is also dedicated to developing discipline and honesty in our children that last a lifetime so that our kids will be confident in their ability to make an impact on their community. To learn more about BLU visit www.thebeth.org/130/the-bethlehem-leadership-unit.

This is Matthew. He's been attending the Read to Lead Academy for several years, just like a lot of other students here! The goal of our Read to Lead Academy is to enrich the lives of K-8 students through faith, culture, and education, all while they receive help with their homework and are taught new skills. #TheBeth #ReadtoLead
