Bethesda Church Donates Money To Gaza – The Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church recently wired $2,000 from the church’s mission budget to a Jerusalem-based charity that says it’s using the money for a private hospital in Gaza. Hamas, which controls the territory, is in an intense military conflict with Israel. A church official said the congregation hooked up with the charity five years ago because of its concern for residents of Gaza. The congregation raised another $1,350 for the charity – the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem — on Sunday and a church official says members are raising more. [The Gazette]

County Websites Go Mobile – Montgomery County recently debuted cell-phone versions of three county websites: The general Montgomery County government site, a mobile 311 site that allows users to open new service requests and track existing ones and the county’s Storm Operations Site.
