What’s The Big Deal

Jesus was crucified and entombed. The apostles other disciples had scattered in fear. When Sunday morning dawned, there fears were forever changed. The women of the group had been to the tomb, and his body was not there. Mary Magdalene had actually seen him. And that night, as they gathered in wonder, Jesus came to them, and spoke to them. From then on they never believed in death. From then on they led the world to believe in life, and life to the full. Let’s see what those apostles and disciples did when they discovered an empty tomb and realized what he meant by “I am… the life.” Life is much more than a finite existence.

So often we wonder about the future, waiting anxiously for what’s next, maybe in terms of our personal lives, our families, our careers, our country. We forget that God is already aware of what tomorrow will bring. He has the answer to every problem we face. He is able to meet us with the miraculous. With each of Jesus’ miracles in the New Testament, we gain a deeper understanding of our miracle-working God, who put to rest any questions about Christ’s divine identity with the prophecy-fulfilling miracle of the Resurrection. So let us not forget that if we’ve been saved by Christ, we have something to look forward to. We have a secure assurance of what’s next, an eternity worth more than anything we may gain or experience during our earthly lives. Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00am as we thank Him for His cross and celebrate the hope we have in His empty grave.

As we are soon approaching the Easter season, we’re taking the time to go back and look at God’s master plan—the prophecies He provided in the Old Testament to prepare His people and to give them hope for their redemption. But did they see it? Did they understand God’s forecast of what was coming? Did they want to? Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00am as Pastor Pat shows us how much we can gain from recognizing the revelation of Christ in the Old Testament while challenging ourselves to have open eyes and hearts for Him today.

We had a great Super Sunday service, and not because of the fun we began with, but because we approached the Communion table by acknowledging the great power that is behind the only One mighty enough to save us: “Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? ‘It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.'” (Isaiah 63:1 ).

House & Home is exploring what it means to be part of a local church – the blessings, the responsibilities, even the challenges that come with God’s design for us to find ourselves at home with our church family, to build friendships, to walk with each other through life’s moments, to find an area of service, as well as to participate in the thoughtful care of our building that allows us to find this home with each other. Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00am as Pastor Pat uses the Word to teach and challenge us to value and embrace our individual roles in our local church.

‘Tis the season once again! If you’ve been struggling with your tangled Christmas lights, putting up your tree, waiting in shopping lines, and baking your gingerbread men, you’re one of millions of people doing these very same things. Why? Because it’s Christmas! How easy it is to celebrate because it’s fun, because it’s tradition, because it’s just what we do. But what if, without necessarily eliminating our elements of Christmastime celebration, we rooted our hearts so deeply in appreciation and understanding of the first Advent that we would never be tempted to answer with “because it’s Christmas” ever again?

Because of Christmas… we have a God who understands what we feel as human beings. We understand God’s power to keep promises, to birth life out of dreary circumstances, to fulfill prophecy, and to have a master plan that spans all of time and beyond. It’s because of Christmas that we have Good Friday, Easter, salvation… and eternity! And so, because of Christmas, we have great reason to give thanks, to give to others, to sing, and to celebrate. Confirming these profound truths in our hearts is the motivation behind our weekly themes this year, prompting each of us to deepen our grasp on all that is possible because of God the Father sending God the Son to live a human life on planet Earth. Join us for this exciting Advent series at Bethesda as Pastor Pat speaks to the significant impact that Christmas can make on our hearts and our lives, inspiring us to cultivate a new type of all-year-round joy because of what God has done.

Whether or not we realize it, if we are human beings, we are also seekers… Some seek happiness, some seek purpose, some seek relationship, some seek knowledge, some seek fame or wealth. And some seek answers—answers to the deepest questions and desires of their hearts. The question is never whether or not we are seeking, but rather what, and more importantly, who we are seeking. We understand that seeking the Lord is a good thing, but how do we do that? How do we seek the Lord for guidance and answers, and how do we seek Him simply to know Him more? Why is it important to seek the Lord, and what happens when we don’t? Pastor Pat’s Sunday morning Seeking series aims to answer these questions and more.

Choices series logo

Choices. In the opening chapter of the first book of the Bible we discover God is sovereign, and He makes choices. Genesis 1:26 reads, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.”’ The triune Godhead made a choice to create, and mankind was the pinnacle of God’s creation. From that point in history God has been choosing both the small and great of his creation to accomplish His purpose. Moses was a shepherd, David just a boy, Esther was an orphan being raised by her uncle, yet God chose to use them all and many others. God still chooses. Choices, a new Sunday morning series led by Pastor Analee Dunn, begins on May 10 and will examine God’s choice of people throughout the Bible and their purpose in his Kingdom.

Sin. Soon after the beginning of time sin marred God’s creation and deeply damaged mankind’s relationship with the Creator. So harmful was the problem of sin that a solution would no doubt be costly. But God had a solution: Sacrifice. The sacrifice of another living being was the high price required for sin. From the earliest pages of the Book of Genesis to the final chapter of the Old Testament, sacrifice was mandated as the remedy for sin. Sin still requires sacrifice, but that sacrifice has already been offered. The sacrificial lambs of the Old Testament have been forever eliminated by of the Lamb of God—Jesus Christ—the final sacrifice making a restored relationship with God possible. On Sunday mornings through the Lenten season Pastors Dunn and Visger will trace the roots of sacrifice to the final Lamb who gave His life for sin and rose from the dead victorious over death. Invite friends and family to this life changing series, especially if they have never beheld the Lamb of God.

At the close of the 19th century, the British newspaper Christian Budget posed the following question to English leaders: “What in your opinion is the chief danger, social or political that confronts the coming century?” Of all the respondents’ answers the most astute and accurate was provided by General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army: “In answer to your inquiry, I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.” Booth’s prognostication was accurate at the dawn of the 20th century and it remains true in 2016. These six dangers still threaten our
Christian walk, but they can be averted. Make it your resolution to attend each Sunday morning as Senior Pastor Analee Dunn analyzes these six “With or Without” statements against God’s Word, offer- ing practical and biblical ways for you to avoid their dangers and make positive advancements in your daily Christian walk.

When God calls, how do you answer? Will it be easy? What can you expect? This 13-week bible study will focus on the life of Abraham. As we study the scriptures together, come expecting to be led by the Holy Spirit to fulfill the call of the Lord upon your life.
