Thank you for partnering with us.Together, we will accomplish great things!
What is partnership?
A partner of Bethesda Temple Apostolic Church is someone who is committed to this ministry and shares in its vision by providing regular support to help meet spiritual and practical needs in our church and in the community.
Committed partners are asked to:
Faithfully attend services.
Actively pray for the first family and the church at large.
Invite others to church and special services.
Use their skills, talents and gifts within the body of Christ by working with and supporting at least one auxiliary.
Consistently sow financially to this ministry expecting God to honor His word: "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over..." Luke 6:38 KJV.
What does my partnership do?
Your “Partnership” is literally making every part of this ministry possible! This includes helping Bethesda to:
Expand community outreach, engage new and current members in the mission and work of Christ and enrich the spiritual, mental, social and professional development of every member through a variety of ministries.
Retire the mortgage and pay off all debt.
To grow the church membership and improve its infrastructure.
As a partner, your giving above and beyond your current tithes and offering allows us to give above and beyond to the work that Christ asks of each of us – go out be witnesses for Him. Your monthly level of support will determine how far that message can go. The only limit in reaching the lost is our collective giving of time, talent and funds. Your individual commitment will impact many. Partner benefits depend on your level of monthly support.

The 2nd Sunday of every month, which is “Partnership Sunday.” You can pay using your regular offering envelope with membership payment marked or through credit card giving in the foyer. We will also send you email reminders and a link for you to make your monthly contribution online. Don't worry about trying to remember, we are happy to remind you. Just set it and forget it! We will also be starting Friends and Family Sunday in conjunction with the “Partnership Sunday.” This will be the perfect opportunity for you to invite people to church. Church invitations will be located on the partnership table in the foyer.
