First Presbyterian Church — Beatrice, Nebraska
In 2019, First Presbyterian Church celebrated our 150th anniversary, and we also installed a new pastor, Zac Wolfe. As we talked about an anniversary gift to the church, Pastor Zac encouraged us to also think about a gift to the community. After discussing several possibilities, we decided to create Sweet Dreams Bed Ministry. Since it was announced in March 2020, the congregation has provided new beds, mattresses, box springs and bedding for 11 children. In addition, we also take along cookies for the family and a book for younger children.
I am proud of how our congregation has embraced this project and has provided both financial and spiritual support. I am thankful to be a part of such a caring church family.
