What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Baptism Bethany Sunday 8th September


Baptisms

This month on Sunday 8th at the evening service, 6.30pm at Bethany, Hannah and Naomi Crockett will be baptised. The speaker will be Derek Watt from Greenock.

Pray for the girls as they prepare for their baptism and also for all who have been invited particularly friends and family as well as the gospel message that will be presented.

When a believer is obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ by being baptised it is a special occasion for them but in addition it is important for those who witness the step. For a believer it is encouraged to see a brother or sister in the Lord taking this step in the Christian life.

For the non-christian it is a challenge to consider why someone would be baptised and what does it mean?' This is a great opportunity for the gospel to be presented.

There will also be a baptism at Renfrew on Sunday 22nd September at Albert Hall, when Stephen Renfrew will be baptised.

It is remarkable how God works and it is possible to cancel the service at Bethany that evening so that we will be able to attend. Pray for Stephen as he prepares for his baptism.


Baptism Renfrew Sunday 22nd September
He who finds a wife finds what is good

Proverbs 18:22

Engagement

We were very happy to learn that Marc Campbell and Pamela Scott announced their engagement last month. All at Bethany wish them both God's blessing for their future life together. No date for the wedding has been announced as yet.

Prayer

Please remember in your prayers Hugh Wallace who has recently moved into the Elderslie care home. Pray as Hugh settles into this new situation for him and also for Wilmar as she adjusts to this also.

Mission Focus

Last month our Mission Focus featured Richard Dunne who gave an excellent PowerPoint report on the Renfrew GLO Mission. Linda Vassie shared her experience of her first involvement as a leader at Summer Camp. Frank McKinnon shared his experience of going to the Keswick Convention. All three were a good illustration of how to spend your time wisely in the Summer months.

AQUA

Aqua restarts on the 8th of September at Bethany following the baptisms. Aqua is held every Sunday at 8pm with young people from Bethany, Dimity, Renfrew and Kilnside meeting together to grow in their Christian faith.

We preach Christ crucified.
