-Boldness to speak matters of God’s own heart; Grace to be encouragers of the body of Christ
-Wisdom to know what to say, how to say it, and when to say it
-To pursue a blameless walk before God

Keeping Watch - Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.”

-Grace to remember that this is Jesus’ flock.
-Thanksgiving for the watch-care that our leaders exercise

Authority - Hebrews 13:17 Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
-Grace to leaders to lead with love, grace, patience, and perseverance.
-Grace to the flock to submit to authority out of reverence for Christ.
-Wisdom and grace to learn to respect leaders that may not always lead in the way we would choose.

The Next Generation of Pastors and Church Leaders
-God to raise selfless shepherds for His people, men who exhibit the character displayed in 1 Timothy 3.
-God to reveal the hearts of the shepherds that He desires to lead us.
-Training of the men God desires to lead His church.

Worship through Giving

As God has so richly blessed us in Christ may we be faithful to use our resources for Him
Worship through Song:
A House United
Let the Nations by Glad
Lead Me to the Cross
Lamb of God
Worship through the Word: This Sunday we have the privilege of welcoming Vojta and Stacy Prknova (Missionaries to the Czech Republic). We look forward to learning of God’s work through their labors. We hope you will also join us in giving to them a love offering which will be collected during the morning service.
Operation Kindness:
Operation Kindness reflects a cooperative desire by areas churches to bless the community with the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We would like to give 1000 Easter buckets to children in area hospitals, shelters, and senior adults in nursing homes the week preceding Easter. You can assist us in the following ways:

1. Pray that lives will be transformed by the Gospel. An age-appropriate gospel tract and a blessing card directing them to the website will be in each bucket.

2. Purchase a variety candy that we can put in the buckets. It doesn't have to be Easter candy per se, but it does have to be packaged candy. Unfortunately b/c of the pandemic restrictions no home made treats will be accepted. Please have the candy at Bethany by no later than March 21.
3. We will fill the buckets on March 23 at Bethany. If you can help us on that day for either the whole day or a portion of it, we will be grateful for your help.

If you have any questions about how you can participate, please feel free to contact us.
