We partner with Matthew 25 Ministries by hosting three collection bins in our front parking lot. We are one of their busiest donation locations! The bins are for soft donated items, such as clothing, sheets, curtains, blankets, shoes etc. Matthew 25 sends a truck each week, usually on Wednesday, to collect donated items from the bins. The clothes are sent to those in need, usually overseas.

EMPTY PILL BOTTLE DONATIONS: Your empty pill bottles may be bagged together and placed in the collection bins. Follow the guidelines below for your bottles to be most useful and sent oversea with medical supplies. Other bottles will be sold for recycling to support Mt25M.

Pill Bottle Prep Guidelines for Shipment : 

  • Bottles included in shipments of medical supplies must have an all plastic lid.
  • Sort bottles by color and type.
  • Remove labels, leaving no glue or residue.
  • Wash bottles in very hot water and dish soap.
  • Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Replace lids on clean, dried bottles.
  • Place clean, recapped bottles in large ziplock bags marked “Clean Bottles.” These will be blended with medical supplies.


On October 8, a team from Bethany Baptist worked at a church in Franklin, helping pack hygiene kits for Middletown City students as part of SEND Relief's SERVE Tour: Dayton.



The Ray Roberts State Missions Offering supports ministry in the state of Ohio. Usually, 100% of your giving goes directly to outreach ministries in Ohio. This year your giving will be distributed evenly between SCBO Disaster Relief efforts and SCBO Send Network Ohio church planting/replanting efforts. Therefore, 50% of the offering will benefit DR and the other 50% will help start new churches and replant existing ones.
