Minister’s Prayer Meeting:

A Primitive Baptist Minister’s prayer meeting is currently being held at Bethany each month on the 2nd Sunday night beginning at 5:00 p.m. The prayers are mainly directed for the Lord to bless our little churches with an increase numerically and spiritually and to send more labourers (ministers) into the Lord’s harvest. Although the ministers will do the praying, everybody is invited and welcome to attend who are interested in the prosperity of the kingdom of God.

” I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.”  (Psalm 122:1-2)
