Oliver is a very good dog.
Wanda Koehrsen took a picture from the balcony during prayers at worship tonight. Pastor Darby is pleased that all those lessons are paying off.

“Oliver. Pray! Good dog!”

Hello! I am reaching out to let my Grandmother's fellow church family know that Alice Johnson is in the hospital with pnuemonia. Grandpa, Norman Johnson, asked me to contact you to add her to your prayer chain. Please feel free to messag me if you would like! Also attached is a link that you can send an eGreeting card to Grandma (Alice). She is in room 701 at Bryan West(you will need this info-and can send cards daily. She really enjoys the cards). Thank you all for you prayers!

My Mom, Neva Moravec, is in Acute Rehab at Mary Greeley in Ames. I know she would love getting cards since no one can visit her. She will be there for probably two weeks.

Later this month we will have a book study on Rachel Held Evans' book “Inspired.” I'm planning to have both an in person and a Zoom class, if there's enough interest.

(Pastor Darby here. I posted this on my Facebook feed and have had two individuals who are not members of Bethany express an interest in the Zoom class. Another pastor has also shared this with his church, so I’m pretty sure that we will have a Zoom class as well.)

If you haven't read the book, I encourage you to do so. It is marvelous.

To give you a taste of her writing, this is the first paragraph of the study guide she wrote for "Inspired" -

"Perhaps more than any other book I’ve written, Inspired is intended to be read, wrestled with, discussed, debated, and creatively engaged with in the context of community. And
that’s precisely because the Bible invites us to do the same. Contrary to what you may have heard in church or Sunday school along the way, the Bible does not always provide clear, straightforward answers to difficult questions, but rather relies on story and song, letters and laws, poetry and proverb to spark among God’s people the questions, ideas, and actions that bring them closer to truth and to one another. With this posture, “the
sacred text becomes a crucial point of contact, a great dining room table, erected by God and set by God’s people, where those who hunger for nourishment and companionship
can gather together and be filled” (p. 24). My hope is that Inspired helps you set that kind of table—in your church, in your small group, or in your time of personal study."

As we close out our week of Teenserve in Plainwell, MI with worship we have so much to be thankful for. We thank God for the opportunity to be here to serve God and share is love and word with others. We praise him for the new friendships we have made the strengthening of the friendships we came here with and the tears and laughter along the way. We also thank you for your prayers this week and ask for prayers for safe travels for all as we journey home tomorrow. God is so good!

Another Teenserve day in the books...those working inside didn't have to dodge the rain drops like the others. Some got creative to stay working, others found a dry place to get better acquainted during the rain delay. Closed the night with an awesome worship service.
