This Wednesday the 12th we’ll be watching a movie and eating pizza at Bethel at 5:30! I’m bringing the pizza, so don’t worry about money for dinner but maybe bring a drink if you want. If you have a movie you want to watch, bring it and we’ll vote on one!! I’ll also bring a few DVDs so we’ll have a bunch to choose from. Also, people expressed interest in making blankets (the kind where you tie knots around the edges and they’re very soft n nice) so you’ll have the option to do that!! If you want to make a blanket, stop by Joann Fabrics and check out the fleece, which is SUPER SOFT! It’s not too expensive but try to print out some coupons before you go, you can almost always find coupons online. I would suggest one patterned sheet for the top and a solid for the bottom, but you can make it one layer or do something else if you want. Dimension-wise, I would also suggest 2 yards of each fabric you want to use, just make sure your two pieces are the same size and that the width is the same (it’ll say on the cardboard piece the fabric is on). Bring your own fabric and maybe a pair of scissors, and we’ll make our blankets together!!! If you don’t want to make a blanket that’s totally fine, come hang out with us anyway 🙂 I hope you’re as excited as I am!!!
Sunday, the Luther movie continues.
Next Wednesday, we’ll be going to dinner (so bring $) and to Second Harvest to volunteer. Make sure to wear long pants and sleeves, as well as closed-toe shoes. Come to Bethel at 5:15, and we’ll be back by 9 pm! Hope to see you there!!!

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good week so far.
At 5:30 this Wednesday, September 28th, we’ll be taking the Bethel Bus to the El Paseo shopping center in Saratoga for dinner. After dinner, we’ll come back to bethel around 7:15 to talk about the Western States Youth Gathering (bring parents at 7:15 if possible!) WSYG is a super fun event during which Lutheran high schoolers from different churches around the west coast and pacific northwest will come together for about five days at Cal Lutheran and hang out. There will be guest speakers, probably concerts and other live performances, and more stuff we’ll talk about on Wednesday! It’s awesome and if you’re available to attend, I would HIGHLY recommend it 🙂
Next Wednesday, on October 5th at 5:30, we’ll be getting dinner at Pieology and then going to Cream for dessert, around Main Street Cupertino. That night, we’ll be doing a “Share Your Story” thing, where you can bring any form of media (a song, a picture or painting, a video, etc) to share something meaningful about yourself or your life.
On Saturday October 8th, Bethel Out and About is going to the Fleet Week event in San Francisco. You can hang out at the pier, see the Blue Angels fly and have fun in the city for a day! If you’re interested in going, let Tom know so he can save you a spot.
Hope to see you guys soon!!
