Pastor's Message for January 2021

A Sudden Time

In January, we see how the Epiphany of Jesus brings to us a truly striking and sudden realization of who He is and how He is needed to form this battle plan - a battle plan that enables each of us to live Christ-like lives in a world that is struggling. As Jesus calls and continues to call each of us to follow Him, we see and experience how He is faithful to us.

That can be hard to do though, so the first step of this battle plan will be to pray - and to do so without ceasing. To get started, I recommend praying the Psalms, perhaps one Psalm a day. As we pray, we will see how God is moving and acting in our lives.

Ultimately, Jesus Christ Himself is what is needed to encourage and motivate us to do this, and that is why we pray in His name.

In February, the season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, where we will go on a journey to Jerusalem with Jesus. This will be a journey to remember as Jesus will teach us the next step of this Battle Plan.

You can also find a link to the weekly bulletin on the church website:

Come and join us at Bethlehem to worship and answer Gods call to live for Him.

In Christ,
+ Pastor Mark +

Trust God, Dream Big, and Enjoy the Results!
