Prayer Gathering
We have been continuing to pray through various themes this summer derived from this article:

Pray for Courage
What the Bible says
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Why it matters
Jesus knew that if His disciples thought of their lives only in terms of their time on earth, they would end up hopeless and disappointed. He knew every struggle and persecution they would face — even the ways they would die.

So in His final conversation with them before He was taken to be crucified, Jesus made sure to teach them about looking at life from an eternal perspective, the way God does. They would face many days that would feel like defeat unless they entered them already knowing that victory was ultimately theirs because of Jesus.

If you are not the kind of person who naturally thinks about heaven and eternity very much, it’s important to ask God to give you His perspective on whatever is happening in your life at any moment. Seeing your life the way He sees it will allow you to experience peace that would seem ridiculous to someone who does not know God.

How you might pray
God, I pray that Your presence will always give me the courage to face whatever happens in life, and I ask You to help me look at the days of my life as You do.

Adult Christian Education
Our regular adult Christian Education classes will resume in September on Wednesday night. Please signup to purchase the next years course binder. The cost of the binders is $35 each and will be collected when you signup on the signup genius.

School Supplies
We have been asking you to begin collecting items to pack backpacks to give to Woodland Park Academy. Due to circumstances outside of our control, our backpack supplier has told us they are unable to fulfill our order for backpacks before the beginning of the school year. Instead of packing backpacks we would ask that you bring school supplies to Bethany by Sunday, August 21. We will give these items to the school to be distributed to students in need.

Free Books
Moses Hoole was able to order several dozen copies of the book, Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers, for distribution to you free of charge. The books are available at the Welcome Center Desk. Please avail yourself of this free resource.

Samaritan Summer
This summer we want to take a cue for Jesus' remarkable story of the Good Samaritan, and put a pause on our some of our regular Wednesday activities at Bethany. Instead of gathering at Bethany on Wednesday evenings, we hope you use your Wednesday evenings to build relationships with your neighbors. We have established a Facebook Group to encourage you through the weeks ahead in this endeavor (please see Pastor Jonathan if you need help gaining access to the Facebook group).
Bottle Deposits for Missions:
If you would be interested in donating your cans, please contact Pastor Jonathan and he will arrange a time with you to bring your cans to the church building.
