Bethany Baptist Church

We, especially the ladies, enjoyed the Valentine banquet at the church on Saturday night. The men cooked the delicious food, waited the tables and handled the cleanup.

On Sunday morning, before the sermon, a ladies quartet sang “How Beautiful Heaven Must Be.”

Bro. Steve continued preaching from the Old Testament books with a message taken from Zechariah 12:10, which he called “The Pierced Savior.”

The book of Zechariah contains some of the greatest prophecies in the Bible: Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, his crucifixion, and the future time when Christ will return to the Mount of Olives (from which he ascended into heaven.) Verse 10 concerns the repentance of the Jewish remnant when they will look upon the one whom they pierced.

Psalm 22, Matthew 27 and John 19 are other scriptures about how Jesus was humiliated, suffered and shed his blood on our behalf. How can we spurn his love, mercy and great salvation?

On Sunday evening, Bro. Steve continued the study on scriptural music, which he titled “New Testament Music.”

Prayer list: Betty Biggs, James Bixler, Ada Church, Arnold DeLoach, Doris and Verdie Glenn, Hubert Griffin, Mildred Griffin, Laverne and Dick Hayes, Robert Hayes, Vicki Mims, Billie Neeley, Lillianna Thompson and the Chancellor family.

See you Sunday!
