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

Pray for Responsibility
What the Bible says
“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” (Romans 14:12)

Why it matters
If you are a Christian, you know that there are ways of living that please God and other ways that displease Him. God determines right from wrong and has the authority to judge anyone. It’s often tempting to try to look at the lives of other believers and find fault to try and distract us from or make us feel better about our own behavior, but Jesus commands us not to judge others (Matthew 7:1-20).

The part of the Bible that the verse above is from is full of strong warnings about judging others or treating them with contempt because they do not follow God in exactly the way you do. One day we will all face God. Understanding how much grace He has shown you will come with an understanding of how little you deserved it.

When you pray, ask God to remind you as often as He needs to that while you may be concerned about someone else’s way of living, you are ultimately responsible for your own.

How you might pray
God, You have given me time, talents, resources and relationships. Help me to make the best possible use of all these things, and teach me to withhold judgment on how other people use their own.

Worship through Giving

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 Outreach
We would like to extend our thanksgiving to you for your generosity in giving to the students at Woodland Park Academy. We were able to pack 17 boxes of school supplies for the students and teachers at the school. Please be praying for the students, teachers, and administration as they being a new school year on Monday. We will be dedicating our prayer time on Sunday morning at 9:00 am to praying for the school. Please join us in praying for them.

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:
