September 10 Bulletin


OUR CHURCH FAMILY

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to remember those young and old with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles.

Congratulations to Lies Boskers as she celebrates her birthday on Saturday. We wish you the Lord’s richest blessings, Lies, and a day filled with love and laughter J.

Do remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: please keep Jenny Bajema, Klaas Boskers, Lea Dykstra and Ernie Stebner in your prayers.

Pray for our missionaries around the world.

Bethel News

Pastor Search Committee:

We have been listening to sermons; on our computers, on our phones, in the house, in the barn, in the car, and walking around Lacombe. Does the pastor have a good voice? Is he engaging? Is the sermon relevant? Is there an application for our daily lives? Do we feel an emotional connection? Using the survey answers from the congregation, we will compare our remaining candidates. We want a man who is a passionate spiritual leader with a warm approachable personality. He is a good listener/communicator and a dynamic preacher who challenges us in our faith walk. We trust in the Lord. May His will be done.

Book Club Will Start Again: 

Ladies, just a reminder that the Book Club will meet on Thursday, September 14th, at 7:30 p.m. at Margaret Roolker’s home. The book is 4-1-9 by Will Ferguson. This is an interesting book to say the least, so come on out and join us for a great evening!

Coffee Break 

will have its first meeting on Wednesday, September 20th, at 9.30am. Please come and join us again (or for the first time!) for another season of Bible studies. Nursery provided-yes, thank the Lord with us that someone volunteered to help us out! We will begin our season with a breakfast, organized and provided by the leaders. Hope to see you all there!

PERSECUTED CHURCH

Cameroon 

After a period of relative calm, the Far North region of Cameroon, along the Nigerian border, has witnessed an upsurge of attacks by Boko Haram. Houses are burned; since January of this year, 83 children have been used as bombers (in one case, killing 8 children who regularly went to Sunday school classes). On August 17th, a church elder was killed in a night raid carried out by the militant Islamic group on Moskota village. These killers also kidnapped the elder's six children who are between the ages of 3 and 15, leaving his wife behind in a state of total shock. May the Lord be dramatically at work... bringing greatly needed comfort to the grieving families of the slain victims, providing ministry and deliverance to those who've been abducted, and by changing the calloused hearts of the perpetrators so they will instead reflect the loving-kindness and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ.
