Bethel News

Next Sunday, November 13th 

Will be World Hunger Sunday in our church. We will read from Jeremiah 29 where “God’s plans give us Hope.” In the evening we read Revelation 5 as it describes “The Lamb and the Scroll.” Pastor Mike will lead our worship.

Profession of Faith

We thank God for his grace to Patrick Finney, making him desire to publicly profess his faith in Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Patrick has faithfully attended our church and been part of the ministry for the past five years. Pastor Mike worked with Pat to clarify his understanding of the basics of the Christian Faith. Council recognizes that Pat’s faith is sincere and welcomes his profession. The profession is planned for November 13th in the morning service.

Thank you! 

The deacons would like to thank the congregation for the over 500 pounds of food that was collected at Thanksgiving and donated to the Lacombe Food Bank.

The Seafarers’ Ministry 

has discontinued their Christmas gift box program as the need is no longer there. If you enjoyed putting together a gift box, Samaritan’s Purse has their Christmas shoe box project in full swing. Their deadline is November 20th. Check out www.samaritanspurse.ca for more information.

Today in your mailboxes is a Lacombe and District Volunteer Link brochure and newsletter. Each paper explains or addresses the many questions about this ministry in action. At this time Bethel has a small number of volunteers who help out in our community, and we would like to change that. If you have a few hours to give to those who need it the most, please contact Dana for all information.

The Persecuted Church


On October 24th, National Transitional Council leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil declared Libya to be "liberated." Operating free of any democratic constraints, Jalil also declared that the law against polygamy will be repealed, Islamic banking will be adopted, and Shariah (Islamic) Law will form the basis for all Libyan law. As has happened in Iraq and Afghanistan, any concession to religious freedom will be rendered void by the supremacy of Shariah. Shariah law prohibits fitna (anything that could shake the faith of a Muslim), especially evangelism (Christian witness), blasphemy (criticizing Islam), and apostasy (leaving Islam). Please pray for all Christians in Libya. Ask the Lord to protect them and make them courageous followers of Christ, for He did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7). Pray for Mustafa Abdel Jalil and all those currently holding positions of authority. Pray that the Lord, in his good timing, will bring genuine religious freedom to this nation.
