What's on

Church Ministries


I've wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord, I saw the light

I saw the light, I saw the light
No more darkness, no more night
Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord, I saw the light

I've walked in darkness, clouds covered me
I had no idea where the way out could be
Then came the sunrise and rolled back the night
Praise the Lord, I saw the light

Jesus said, "I am the Light of The World"

John 8:12

We have the mind of Christ!

1 Corinthians 2:16



Summer Time

Conversation in the summer months is often dominated by the weather which can be good, bad but seldom indifferent There is more to the summer season, time for a break, maybe even a rest, but also an opportunity to serve the Lord or enjoy Christian fellowship, whether at Camp, Convention or Mission. Whatever you do may your memories this summer be more than a weather report.

Sunday school

The Prizegiving service for the Sunday school children and Bethany Buds last month was a great success with the families and friends of the children appreciating the programme looking back over the last session.
We also appreciated the gospel message from Tommy Watson. Thank you to all who assisted making the event a special occasion for everyone involved.
Pray for the Summer Sunday school when the children will learn not only about the Olympics but serving God.


Pray for the camp Coffee Night on 20th June 2008

Tribute

Pray for John Dick at this time of loss of his partner of many years Jean, who passed away last month and who served the Lord well, being fondly remembered particularly for her involvement in the Friends and Neighbours at Bethany.

Pray for the Summer Camp 21st - 25th July 2008

Focus on France

Allan and Anne Kitt were encouraged by the baptism of Milly, who was mentioned on a previous update. The family for whom she has been working were all present at the baptism and she gave a very clear testimony. Pray that they will continue to be impressed by her witness after she leaves and returns to Kenya. Pray, too, for the homes around the assembly who have been receiving tracts regularly for the past three months. At the end of June, a personal visit to as many of these homes as possible is planned, to ask householders if they would like to continue receiving the tracts.


Summer Camp

The Camp Coffee Night on the 20th of June at Bethany was well attended by campers, leaders and parents. The camp this year will be held at Whittaugh Park in the borders from the 21st to 25th July. There will be around 77 campers and 21 leaders this year at camp that will enjoy the facilities at the centre and listen to the speaker Douglas Young. Please pray for suitable weather and that God will bless the camp.


News

Once again there will be joint services on a Sunday evening during the summer with the friends from Kilnside Evangelical Church and Albert Hall, Renfrew. The first service will be held at Kilnside on the 6th July with full details on page four of the update.
