IMPACT at Bethel Men’s Shelter

    • When: 09/21/20
    • QIC: Reborn
    • The PAX: All PAX and Families

This is a BackBlast to inform the PAX of F3 Rock Region what IMPACT your time, talent, & financial donations have made over the past 9-months at Bethel Men’s Shelter and a PreBlast to inform you of what is coming in the near future.

First, with your support we have served over 410 meals to the homeless men of York County and the volunteers of the Shelter. F3 Lake Wylie has packaged hygiene bags full of items donated by others to give to the men at the Shelter to use in the new showers. Blueprint’s company designed the showers and Cocktail’s company is constructing them. #HIM

Please consider signing up to serve on the second Tuesday of each month. We have slots for QIC, meal prep, servers, and general fellowship from now until the end of the year and beyond.

Rock Hill Roasting Co. is still selling bags of coffee to all people for $15 and $5 goes directly to the work we are doing at Bethel. Thanks to Mr. Beans and Ponytail for leading this. More fundraisers are coming to help fund purchasing of shoes and shirts for the men at the shelter.

We are completely open and transparent about the funding and have 5 PAX who are watching the credits and debits of the account. If you have any questions or want to know more information, please contact YHC.


Second, the HIM of three Regions (Rock Region, The Fort, and Lake Wylie) have signed up to serve at the Love our Neighbor event in early Oct. If you are still interested in helping, below is the link to sign up, or just show up to help on Oct. 3 at the Shelter. Help also by purchasing BBQ that day or going to a restaurant that is sponsoring the event the week before.

Finally, after much discussion with the Region’s SLT, former SLT members, some Site Q’s, and other PAX involved heavily at Bethel Men’s Shelter, we have decided to move the Wednesday BTC workout to the Shelter. Blueprint will remain the Site Q through the transition, and the Q Schedule has been filled through the end of the year. The workout will be a Bootcamp with some Running to encourage the men at the Shelter to join. It will still begin at 0500 and last until 0550 to allow for FNG naming afterward without PAX having to leave and to give a little more time for fellowship.

This primary goal of this workout is to encourage the men at the Shelter to begin accelerating through Fitness to help them accelerate in the other 2 F’s of F3. Secondary there is the goal of beginning some long-lasting relationships with these men and accelerating in your own life by Living 3rd.

This workout will not be moderate, as we believe all PAX can modify. However, all PAX are encouraged to attend, no matter your fitness level, and modify, as necessary. Reach out to Blueprint to sign up to Q a workout in the beginning of 2021.

We will focus highly on the 5 Core Principles, Credo, and Mission of F3 and stress mentioning the disclaimer before every workout, FNG or not.

At the first workout, we will be renaming BTC to a different name with the same acronym. Bring ideas to the table with the understanding what the workout is about. It is about changing lives.

Please consider how you as a HIM and your family can serve at Bethel. We are looking to change the lives of men in our community we see every day but might not notice.
