Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:
This group meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room. You are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. Consider coming next Sunday...you will be so welcomed! God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests. FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well. - Pre-service Prayer Group

Living Way - The UBER Memory Verse:
ReFuel is the first & third Wednesdays of the month at 6:45PM. ReFuel is a gathering of God’s people here at Bethany in which we share what God has been doing in our lives, seek the support from one another through prayer requests and reflect upon a portion of the Word before approaching the table of the Lord. ReFuel ends about 7:20PM and the sanctuary remains open for 15-20 minutes for personal prayer and reflection.
- ReFuel in May is May 17; join us on the first Wednesday (May 3) for a special National Day of Prayer service at 7:00PM.

Each day in The One Year Bible you will find a selection from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament, a portion from the Psalms, and a selection from the book of Proverbs. Each week there will be a study posted on the Bethany blog (www.bethanylutheran.blogspot.com) to help you stay on track and to communicate insights or ask questions. Need more information?
