Saturday Jan 9, 16, & 23. @ 5:30PM Bethany – Kelly, Ia

7:30 to 8:20 am.  Every weekday.  Monday through Friday.  For 12 weeks.  50 total hours in the classroom.  Hundreds of hours outside the classroom.  That was how one of my classes went during my first semester at Seminary.  All of that time was devoted to studying the first three chapters of Genesis in Hebrew.  So if you think that I dig too deeply into some of the verses in our Acts study, well ….  But I gained a deep, lasting appreciation for the narrative of the Creation and the Fall.  This week the Old Testament reading is the first 5 verses of Genesis 1.  And it will tie in with our Acts study as well.  See you Saturday evening at 5:30 in Bethany Lutheran Church.

The readings this week will be:

Genesis 1:1-5

Psalm 29

Acts 21:1-26

Mark 1:4-11

Upcoming events:

Saturday, January 9, 16, 23 – 5:30 pm – Shepherd of the Prairie worship at Bethany

January 5-7 – LCMC 3 days of prayer – https://www.lcmc.net/three-days-of-prayer

We will continue providing Zoom broadcasts of our services this week as well.  Keep in mind, just because we are meeting in person does NOT mean that you MUST join us in person.  If you would like to join us and feel safe doing so, we would LOVE to have you.

If you’re still not sure, stay home and join us via Zoom. https://zoom.us/j/5153822077 (or launch the Zoom app and “Join” meeting 515 382 2077).  As in the past, you will need to put in a password AFTER you have entered the meeting ID: 3548999

While we are very grateful to Bethany for their hospitality, we intend to go back to the Middle School for Sunday morning worship as soon as the school district allows outsiders to use the facilities.  At this time, we have no idea when that will be.
