"I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded now lives in you also."
-2 Timothy 1:5

"I gave you milk, not solid food, you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready."
-I Corinthians 3:2
Slide 3

"We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn."
-Hebrews 5: 11

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourself, it is a gift of God- so that no one can boast."
-Ephesians 2:8-9

People may be placed in your life not to make you a perfect Christian, but to point you towards Jesus when you are imperfect.

"I look up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth."
-Psalms 121:1-2

Reasons I stay at Bethany

#1 Commitment

#2 Bethany is a multigenerational church

#3. People of Bethany

I want my milk homogenized. I don’t want my church homogenized.

If I’m not moving forward in my faith then I’m falling behind or away.

I don’t see Bethany as a homogenous church but I see it as a harmonious church.

Future of Bethany

A church that knows no walls.

Will you be those people?

"Jesus said 'Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: Love others as well as you love yourself. These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s law and the Prophets hangs from them.'"
-Matthew 22:37-40 from The Message

Can I love people better than I do now?
