Bethany was blessed with another Spirit filled annual meeting with Elder Ricky Harcrow from Fort Payne, AL. We had good singing, good attendance, edifying prayers, good food, good fellowship, and powerful preaching by Elder Harcrow. He brought three messages before he had to leave on Saturday night. Friday night preaching was on Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made you free. Saturday morning he preached from John 14:8 on the Three In One Godhead with great clarity and explanation. After a good fish supper with fish by Bro. Gene York, a good singing service and more preaching by Elder Harcrow from John 17:1 on the Hour of Christ, His sufferings and the glory to follow. Some pictures to refresh your mind on the meeting and count your blessings.

We sometimes need to take inventory of our lives and do as the scripture says to “examine ourselves whether we be in the faith.” We might find we come up lacking in the things that are essential to our enjoying the abundant life.
Verse Of The Week 04-11-2021
“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude 21)
