Read our latest blog written by our social work intern, Grace!
"...Coming into this internship, I thought I knew what it meant to put myself in someone else’s shoes. Then I met a little girl named Jamariya. She lives near the Beth with her mom and siblings. If anyone has a reason to feel like a victim, it’s her. Jamariya comes from a single-parent, low-income household, and lives in a notoriously high-risk neighborhood for crime. However, after spending time in the Eggs classroom (our K - 1st graders), I realized that she is one of the best students in her class..."

Merry Christmas! Enjoy this poem by our Beth staff member Jennifer Hewitt Johnson.

"Celebrating the True Meaning of Christmas"
(Christmas festivities are good, but God is great. He is the One we celebrate!)

The tree is lit up and the stockings are hung.
Presents are wrapped and loved ones have come.
We anticipate all the fun times ahead—
The laughter, the games, and our bellies well-fed.
But let’s pause for a moment to reflect on this time.
There’s a much better reason for our faces to shine.
God sent His Son to the earth to dwell.
We know His name—Emmanuel.
Angels and shepherds proclaimed His birth.
All heaven declared the Savior’s great worth.
As the years passed, the story did unfold.
It was just as Isaiah the prophet foretold.
The Son grew in favor with God and man,
All to fulfill His Father’s plan.
He preached the Word. He healed the sick.
He loved all the people wherever He went.
Then when the time came, He died on sin’s tree—
This is the way He sets people free.
In heavenly power, He defeated the grave.
He rose again! His purpose? To save!
So let us remember this Christmas morn’:
To celebrate the babe, Christ Jesus, who was born.
