This Sunday at Bethany – Jan. 24 2016

This Sunday at Bethany will be another special day.  There will be a laying on of hands for the two search committees of the Church as we commission them to find a new Director of Music and Director of Youth Ministries.  The Franc Family will be back to lead music as well.  I (Pastor Derek) will be following up on my sermon from last week on social justice and the Church.  This Sunday’s message will focus on standing in the gaps.  Last week I asked all members to pray and ask God “what can I do?”  There is a powerful saying for our Veterans, “All gave some, some gave all”.  The expectation of the Church in matters of social justice should be the same, “All gave some, some gave all”.  Dr. King, St. Peter, St. Paul, St. John are examples who gave all.  Jesus gave all on the cross.  How can we do our part and give some if not all for the causes God calls us to take up to change the world.
