Today we bring our offerings for Shalom Counseling in Red Deer.Motivated by Christian love and working collaboratively, Shalom provides to all who seek the services: Quality Christian Counselling for emotional & relational concerns, Family Life & Wellness Education for the community and training & encouragement for caregivers.

Next Sunday, February 4th we will take an offering for Classis Alberta North Church Plants. The Classis Alberta North Home Missions team is hoping to plant one new church in our region every 3 years for the next 15 years. Sponsoring congregations will raise up to 50% of the funds needed with churches like Bethel giving prayer and financial support for the plants. Thank you so much for your support!

Congregational Prayer Gathering: Tonight 7:00 pm

We are God's people, called by His name. If we humble ourselves, go to Him and call upon Him, He may hear us and heal us and continue His work among us. We will have another Congregational Prayer Gathering this evening at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to join in prayer with coffee and refreshments to follow. Corporate prayer is needed for the Search Committee, the Renewal Lab, our Youth ministries, and many other things. We are still looking for a way to make it possible for all who come to participate and especially to hear, so please come and help us find that particular solution that will work for all involved.

Multi-generational Bible Study:

We will have our first meeting today, after the morning service. It will be at the home of Margaret Roolker. We will prepare lunch and eat together while we get to know each other better and talk about the things of the Lord. Should you feel a desire to join us, even last minute, you are very welcome!

Food for Thought:

May this be our prayer for each other: "...that our love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God." Philippians 1:9-11
