If you have been keeping up with the news at all lately, you know that now, more than ever, we need to pray! Join us Tuesday evening in the Fireplace Room at 7pm as we pray for our church, our nation, and our world.
This Summer we will once again return to the Six Corners neighborhood for four Saturdays of ministry. We will minister to children through a VBS and to adults by giving away food and clothing, and through conversations and prayer. On the last Saturday, July 30, we will also cook hamburgers and hotdogs for anyone from the neighborhood who cares to come! We can always use more volunteer help. If you would like to join us in ministering to this neighborhood, e-mail Pastor Stephen: firstname.lastname@example.org
This coming Sunday at Nightlife we are hosting another Q&A with a panel of Bethany pastors. If you have questions about the Bible, theology, the church, or Christian living, this is a great time to get them answered. You can ask your questions via our Facebook page, tweet them with #nlqa, or, if you want to ask anonymously, you can send a text to 72044 with the hashtag #nlqa. The sooner you get your questions in the better the answers will be! Ready…Go!
As we have studied the book of Acts over the past few weeks we have seen the importance of praying together. Now, let’s put that insight into action. Join Nightlife in the Lighthouse auditorium on April 12 from 7-8pm for prayer. There will be a brief teaching on prayer as well as direction given to help you pray throughout the evening. Please join us in calling on God for our needs, the needs of our communities, and the needs of our world.
The attached outlines and paper are materials intended to supplement the Acts sermon series at Nightlife. You may download and read them, but please do not distribute or publish any part of them without express written permission from the author.
Isaiah 58:6-7 says, “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?”
So, we are inviting guests from a homeless shelter to a meal in their honor. We will serve them an elegant dinner, provide entertainment, share a message of hope through Jesus, offer prayer and provide them with some clothing. If you would like to help, reply on our Facebook Event Page.
This Sunday at Nightlife we are compiling a panel of pastors to field questions. You can ask any question related to the Bible, theology, the church…but preference will be given to questions relating to themes from our most recent sermon series, ‘For Lack of Knowledge.’ So far, those themes include Naturalism/Materialism, Abortion, Marriage and Sexuality, and Homosexuality. You can submit questions anonymously throughout the week by texting ‘NLQA’ followed by your question to 72044. If you text them early, there is a greater chance that your question will be answered and it will give our pastors a better opportunity to prepare (unless you are trying to play ‘stump the chumps,’ in which case, we want you to ask your question live so that we know who you are!). You will also be able to text questions during the service and there will be a chance for you to ask questions live if you prefer. See you Sunday!
As part of our current mini-series, ‘For Lack of Knowledge,’ Pastor Stephen recently addressed the issue of abortion and how Christians should think about and respond to that issue. We want to provide you with a manuscript of that sermon in the hope that you will be better prepared to defend life and better equipped to speak up for the unborn! You can listen to the podcast here, or click here to view a pdf of the manuscript.
