Our offering today is for Albert & Carolyn Strydhorst. 

Albert is doing ministry with the Timothy Leadership Training Institute in Grand Rapids. TLT is a non-formal inductive learning program for church and lay leaders around the world. They have training materials in 20 different languages, and these materials are available in more than 40 countries. Thousands of pastors and evangelists have been trained in TLT in the past 20 years. Please continue to keep Albert & Carolyn and their family in your prayers. They are very thankful for our ongoing spiritual and financial support.

The offering next Sunday, January 20th is for the Bethel Cadets. 

Luke 2:52 states that “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and men.” The goal of the Calvinist Cadet Corps, based upon that verse, is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social) by providing Christian men with a uniquely designed structure, program, and materials so that they can mentor boys effectively.

Food for Thought: 

Do you sometimes forget to think about the words of the songs we sing?

This is what we sang last Sunday: "Lord, I come....from the shadows into Your radiance, By the blood I may enter Your brightness, Search me, try me, consume all my darkness...Set me free by the truth You now bring me...Shine on me..." (Graham Kendrick) Should this not be our daily prayer?
