"The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-By-The-Sea believes that caring for those in need is one of our core Christian beliefs and we encourage everyone to attend either our Palm Beach Empty Bowls event at the Church on February 14th or our sister event on the Great Lawn at the West Palm Beach GreenMarket the following day. The Church has a strong history of supporting our community and in the last 20 years we have distributed over $10 million dollars to local agencies through funds raised by our resale shop, The Church Mouse." - Patricia D. Reichenbacher

"Life-giving food, 'our daily bread' is a symbol of God's generosity," says The Reverend Kate Kelderman, here pictured at the far left with a group of volunteers at the Palm Beach County Food Bank. Potters and chefs, donors and organizers gathered at the Food bank getting ready for Bethesda-by-the-Sea's February 14 launch of the Empty Bowls Project. The Reverend Kate, Associate Rector for Ministry Development
sees so many connections of fellowship in the communal meal taking place in the Parish Hall and the Garth. "This Event", continued, Rev. Kate,"beautifully exemplifies BBTS's mission of service. By connecting so many volunteers and organizations we are united in the cause for the poor. We pull the edge of society to the center and LIVE INTO a new and vibrant way of being church in the world"
The compassionate community of those at BBTS are hard at work gathering bowls, soups, and bread and dessert to create a special day, February 14 from 11:30 to 2;30. 100% of the funds raised then go directly to the Food Bank for their important work in supporting the 100+ Agencies who feed those in need.
"Just start with 'Love they neighbor' says Rev. Kate, " and live into that."
