When Mourning Dawns – A Journey Through Grief
Next Tuesday, August 23rd at 5:30pm in the chapel, this grief support program led by Pastor Brenda Wideman, will offer people an opportunity to journey through the grieving process along with the support and encouragment of others who seek to heal from their grief. Over the last year and a half, dozens of people in our church and the community have been blessed by the healing experienced offered by this supportive group. If you or someone you know is experiencing grief, please extend a hand of hope and invitation to join this journey of healing next Tuesday.
Prayers for our Law Enforcement Officers
In our respective services this Sunday, the churches of the Bella Vista Ministerial Alliance are recognizing and praying for our law enforcement officers who serve and protect our community. During the pastoral prayer in each of our services, a specific time of prayer will be dedicated to lifting up our local law enforcement officers and all law enforcement officers who faithfully serve to ensure our safety. Please join us in enveloping our faithful law enforcement agencies in prayer. Whenever you see a law enforcement officer, tell him or her, “Thank you.”
