We have an opportunity during the week of January 21st to serve the homeless families of New Castle County right here at Berea. Please prayerfully consider volunteering your time. Sign-up Sheets are in the lobby. If you have questions, please contact Brian Bockrath or JR Reap.
On January 28th we will gather as we love to do on Sunday at 10:45 am to worship our great God. However, this particular Sunday, we will have a special “covenant renewal” service which will include our church’s annual meeting.
In the Bible, before the undertaking of some great new venture, before entering the Promised Land or building a new temple, or anointing a new leader, the people of God took a long, prayerful look at their past. First, they reminded themselves what God had done in their midst, and also what he had called them to do in the world. Secondly, they recommitted themselves to that calling in the present. They made promises and brought gifts. Finally, and only after they had taken these first two steps, they turned toward the future and the new venture.
On this covenant renewal Sunday, the elders will highlight our vision and will reflect on the past accomplishments God has made through our church. And as we renew our covenant with God, we will recommit to serving and loving Hockessin where God has called us. This time together will also allow new members and attendees to engage with our vision in an active way.
As we worship and thank God for all he has done through Berea, we will also pray that God would grow and form our church community so that we are ready to be sent out into our community to share the light and hope of the gospel with our friends, neighbors, and coworkers.
Tuesday Night Women’s Bible Study begins September 19th at 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall and meets the first and third Tuesdays of most months through April. We will be using the book “Romans 8-16 For You”. All women are welcome! Please contact the church office at 302-239-7631 for more information.
Men of Berea come and enjoy a time of fellowship and a wonderful breakfast. We are going to take a break from the “Truth Project” series and examine what the book of James has to say about how we should live. The question we will consider “Is my life consistent with my faith.” We look forward to a great time together beginning on the 20th at 9 am.
