Bethany Evangelical Church – The Comfort of the Holy Spirit by Pastor Daniel Mihet
Bible Reading: John 14:15-21
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be[in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (v 16-18)

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.

This is a more formal service where all those who know and love Jesus Christ as their Saviour and are following Him as Lord are welcome to take part.
The Lord’s Supper is found in the Gospels (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:17-25; Luke 22:7-22; and John 13:21-30). The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:23-29 : “Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself” (1 Corinthians 11:27-29). What really means to partake of the bread and the cup “in an unworthy manner.” It may mean to ignore the true meaning of the bread and wine and to forget the tremendous price our Saviour has paid for our salvation. Or to allow the religious ritual to become a dead and formal habit, nothing more and to come to the Lord’s Supper with sin in your heart (gossip, malice, anger, etc.)
What Paul is clearly saying is that we should examine ourselves before eating the bread and drinking the cup, taking them with reverence and gratitude, not out of habit or as a religious ritual.
We would like you to feel at home with us so if you haven’t been to our church before, we would like you to know that before this service we have a coffee break and you are more than welcome to come and join us!
The Family Service is our more informal Sunday morning service and is a mixture of modern and traditional music, children’s talk, prayer and a Bible message. Music may include piano, organ, guitars, etc. The service lasts about an hour and the sermon is normally 25-30 minutes.
There is a Sunday School provision for children available during the morning service.
There is also a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.
TUESDAYS 10.00 am – 12.00 noon
Open Doors is our way of saying ‘Welcome to Bethany – you are important for us! ‘
This is just a relaxed time around a cup of tea/coffee for anyone who needs a break from the hustle and bustle of this life to think about their soul and ponder on what really matters in life.
Come and go as you like, but do come back next week again!
Why should we interact together and study the Bible? What is our goal? What are we after?
We lead Bible studies to learn about the Bible, to develop more theological insight or biblical understanding, to grow in faith as Christians, to get to know people better, to introduce others to Jesus (Acts 17:2-3), etc.
Above all, we attend Bible studies to find eternal life by getting to know God, His Son Jesus Christ (John 17:3) and comprehend the work of the Holy Spirit. God has revealed Himself through Jesus and we meet here in Bethany to study His word and have a personal encounter with the Living Word.
Come along every Wednesday evening from 7.15 to explore various books of the Bible and get better acquainted with the Author!
