Dear Church family and friends,
There are a number of go-to scripture passages that all of us love to remember when we have a need. Here are some of mine:
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
“Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually.” Psalm 105:4 (ESV)
“The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace.” Psalm 29:11
In the middle of all that is going on in our lives and in the world right now, peace is pretty hard to come by at times. We can take the “higher up” view, a place above panic and fear and look to God who is in control of everything. The “higher up” is God’s presence-which you enter when you pray and meditate on His Word. God invites us to come to Him in these ways. “Come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” (Hebrews 4:16) Like now!
I am praying for all of you! Our worship will be on Facebook – bccbethanycommunitychurch. You can watch it live on Facebook or can view the recording. Our worship is also on our website.
This past week our church was privileged to help three families with benevolent needs and we contacted more families about our willingness to help them get to designated areas for free school breakfast and lunch pick up. Thank you to everyone who is sending in your tithes and offerings. Like every church, we still have weekly expenses and missions giving to cover. We keep trusting the Lord one day at a time.
