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 Polly Mooy and Nelly Keitel as they celebrate birthdays this Tuesday and Thursday. Wishing you both a wonderful day filled with love and laughter with family and friends with many blessings!! J

Arlene Vreugdenhil has moved to Seasons, 4004 40 Street in Ponoka (formerly Sunrise Village). She is doing well and is up for short visits. Please call Arlene at 403-783-5241 for a chat and/or to arrange a visit with her.

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

Pray for our missionaries around the world.

Bethel News

News from the Bethel Council: 

With thankfulness council is happy to report that August Luymes has indicated his willingness to join council as an elder. August has faithfully served several terms in this capacity in the past. August will be installed as elder during the service this morning.

Pastor Search Committee

Will meet at the home of Debby van Iperen on Tuesday, July 24th at 7:30 p.m.

Prayer meetings: 

Due to the holiday season there will be no prayer meetings held in the coming month. This doesn't mean our congregation is not in need of ongoing prayer. Please do remember your brothers and sisters in the Lord, and the ministries of our church. As our heavenly Father never stops caring for us, let us "pray without ceasing" for each other.

Home Churches: 

A number of people have expressed interest in being trained to become leaders of house churches. Paul and Megan Den Oudsten are willing to do this training. Since many of us are away in the coming weeks, this training will D.V. take place in September. Announcements with specifics will be placed in the bulletin closer to that time.

To the congregation of Bethel CRC, Lacombe

We are thankful for your gifts of $7,067.20 to World Renew received in Spring 2018. Your donations are bringing hope and strength to God’s most vulnerable people through Refugee Resettlement, Free A Family and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Through your generous support, prayers and advocacy, we have together been able to bear witness to the goodness of God in a broken and hurting world. We acknowledge that the scope of need is sometimes difficult to comprehend, but we take refuge in the fact that our God is loving and merciful. Together, we are bringing lasting, practical help that is changing lives! We invite you to continue on this journey with us toward building God’s kingdom of justice and mercy for all. We would also be grateful for your continued prayer support - find out ways to pray for the work we are doing together and for the people we serve at www.worldrenew.net/pray.

PERSECUTED CHURCH

Nigeria

In the first days of July militant Fulani herdsmen razed a dozen villages, killed more than 200 Christians, and displaced more than 3,000. Due to the insecurity of the area, people have been left unattended by aid organizations. However, some local churches have stepped in to set up informal camps for internally displaced people in the Heipen area. Open Doors are present, on the ground, partnering with these indigenous churches to bring aid. Please continue to pray with believers in Nigeria’s Middle Belt who continue to face deadly violence, destruction and displacement. Pray for the Lord’s working in their lives so that they will not be poisoned by hatred. Pray for wisdom and urgency for the government to address this violence.
