Running to Tell

The modern-day marathon is based on the story of a Greek messenger, Pheidippides. According to legend, in 490 bc he ran approximately twenty-five miles (forty kilometers) from Marathon to Athens to announce the Greeks’ victory against their formidable foe, the invading Persians. Today, people run marathons for the personal satisfaction of an athletic achievement, but Pheidippides had a greater purpose behind his effort: each of his steps was run for the sheer joy of delivering such good news to his kinsmen!

Some 500 years later, two women also ran to deliver good news—the most pivotal news in all of history. When…

Bethany Evangelical Dumfries – The Hope of Heavenly Rewards

Bethany Evangelical Dumfries – The Hope of Heavenly Rewards by pastor Daniel Mihet,

Bible reading 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.” (1 Corinthians 3:11-13)

Sunday 10 January 2021

We are a small, but friendly congregation that is seeking to teach and understand the message of the Bible, which is just as relevant today as it ever was. Our aim is to glorify God and enjoy a real relationship with Him through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ.

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. 

(Psalm 145:18-19)

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 Savior 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.

The Bible Message follows the Communion and will be delivered by the church pastor, elders and other visiting speakers on relevant & faith-building topics for the benefit of the congregation.

NOT TAKING PLACE AT THE MOMENT DUE TO COVID CHURCH CLOSURES AND FURTHER RESTRICTIONS

TUESDAYS 10.00 – 11.00

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, pray and ponder on what really matters in life.

Come and go as you like, but do come back next week again!

Prayer & Bible Study

ALL THE MID-WEEK SERVICES ON WEDNESDAYS @ 7.00 PM ARE CURRENTLY ON ZOOM!

Please contact us for the access link, if you would like to join us for these midweek prayer and Bible study services

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!
