Bethlehem serves Lazarus House (https://lazarushouse.net) the second Saturday of each month. We provide a full dinner for approximately 60 men, women and children as well as bagged lunches for those that work and attend school during the week. We also provide an overnight volunteer to help their staff in the event of an emergency (this is currently on-hold due to COVID-19). The Lazarus House shelter is located at the Free Methodist Church, 214 Walnut Street, St. Charles. You will receive a letter via e-mail or mail with detailed instructions approximately one week before the service date. Please contact Emily Bicking at 815-245-0913 or [email protected] with any questions. Thank you for helping our neighbors in need!
