On the second Saturday of each month, Bethel opens its doors to those in need within our congregation and our community. At Marketplace, we offer a full choice food pantry, free of charge. Our food pantry is stocked with non-perishable items, fresh fruits and produce, eggs, and dairy products. You are free to choose items that are most needed and that you and your family likes best. We also offer a clothing depot with gently-used clothing for all ages.  The first three items of clothing are free per person and each additional item is 50 cents.

What should you expect if you attend Marketplace? A safe environment, warm atmosphere and friendly service! Once you have checked in at our registration desk you can grab a coffee or tea and some baked goods and hang out in our atrium while you wait for your turn in the food pantry/clothing depot. Your children can play in our Kids’ Zone, complete with crafts, games, toys and books.
