There’s no better place to take the family to celebrate Halloween in a safe, community, and carnival atmosphere.

Last year about $1200 and 2000 lbs of food were raised for the shelter, which is one of Bethany Church’s favorite ministries. Long Beach Rescue Mission has been around since 1972, and provides shelter and programs for men and women experiencing homelessness with over 200 emergency beds filled on a nightly basis.

The Shelter has three main programs to help people experiencing homeless on every part of their journey to recovery: Emergency shelter, case management, and their New Life Program, along with regular daily meals for the hungry.

During the holidays, they do especially big outreach and meals feeding well over a thousand people on both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Bethany’s Light the Night Carnival specifically helps raise funds and supplies for those events.

So, bring the family this Sunday for lots and lots of fun that will bring equally wide smiles to both your children, as well as those in need within our community.

“We invite anyone and everyone to come join in the fun. We want East Long Beach to see how much we truly love our community, love our city, and really hope for God’s best in everyone,” said Bethany Lead Pastor Jeff Levine. Jeff spent many years as a Chaplain for Long Beach Rescue Mission before taking the lead position at Bethany. Their mission is near and dear to his heart. Jeff and the rest of Bethany hope you will join them for this event that supports the Long Beach Rescue Mission, throughout the holiday season!
