The BereanWay Saturday

The first Thursday of May is designated as the “National Day of Prayer“. Started on July 4, 1952 by President Harry S. Truman and later moved to the current observed date in May by President Ronald Reagan. It was resolved as, The President shall set aside and proclaim a suitable day each year, other than a Sunday, as a National Day of Prayer, on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.” Choosing to be “Prayer Warrior” is another part of our role in our nation and world as believers. We are encouraged to pray (I Timothy 2:1-6) for our society to come to the Lord. On this day, we collectively join our prayers together with the prayers of other Believers for God’s grace to continue to be extended to our respective communities and civic leaders.

The BereanWay Weekly Devotional with Pastor Tony. We can and should be praying for our world and nation. Today’s devotional focuses on Jabez and his supplication to the Lord. I Chro. 4:9-10, reminds us of his prayer for his country and his desire for his family. Would you consider praying for family and community with Pastor Tony Today

If you are interested in getting fit by walking, join The BereanWay’s Faith-n-fitness Team. We are walking through our surrounding
neighborhood, telling people about our Lord Jesus and our ministry and getting in some good fellowship and exercise. Every Saturday at 8:45 am and Mondays at 6:15 pm.

Join us and invite someone to our Sunday Morning Service which begins at 10:00 am. Each time we share Christ, each time we share our faith and The BereanWay, we are to place a ball in the jar. Fill the Jar.

Adventuring – The BereanWay

Faith & Fitness , God has given us only body to serve him. Partaking in the new Faith & Fitness is one of things of change Pastor Harris spoke of in his message series, “How to Handle Change“. No matter our age, physical challenges, there are some things we can do to maintain this chosen vessel to a vessel of honor (2 Tim. 2:21). This morning’s first day bike/walk, took us on a 3.5-mile trek through the Riverfront section of Northern Suffolk. Shouts of praise to the ONE who has called us into an abundant life, the life in Christ Jesus. Join us this coming Monday April 1, at 6:00 pm for day 2.

How to Handle Change

It has been said that, “Change is inevitable“. Everything is our world changes, so you would think we would be used to change. But not so, especially if the change is not to our favor or not as we would have made the change.

How To Handle Change – From David’s account in Psalm 62, Pastor Tony helps know that no matter the change, we have a source to help us navigate and adjust through it. We are limited in our wisdom and understanding of why things are the way they are and why change happens. But when we see things from God’s sovereign perspective, we can be at peace, in safety and have hope.

How To Handle Change Pt 2 We should handle change prayerfully. It’s a good and spiritual thing to say we should handle change prayerfully but we, admittedly do not prayerfully handle change. In today’s, part 2 of Pastor’s Harris’ series on “How to Handle Change – Part 2”, he gives us a way that will allow us to properly and biblically handle change. Psalm 62:1-8 is our text today.

How to Handle Change Pt 3 Sometime change happens gradually and sometimes changes happens “suddenly”. In today message on How to Handle Change Pt 3, Pastor Tony takes us to the account of Jesus disciples when they were out in a boat and a tempest suddenly arose. But what happens when things happen immediately in our lives?

Listen – Pt 1
Listen – Pt 2

Everlasting Love

Happy Valentine’s Day to You!

The love of God towards you is from eternity pass to eternity future and beyond. The Lord wants us to adore him and by knowing the depths of his love. In accepting his love by faith, we can and should live in confidence and grace. His love was extended to us when needed to be loved. His love sustains us and his love secures us throughout all eternity.

  • “I have loved you with a love that lasts forever and so with unfailing love, I have drawn you to myself. ” Jer. 31:3b CEB
  • “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life.” Jhn 3:16 CEB
  • “But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. I’m convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers or height or depth, or any other thing that is created.” Rom. 8:37-39 CEB
  • “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” I Jhn 3:1 NKJV

God’s love for his chief created beings is different. Everything we have from the Father (joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. – Gal. 5:22-23), is a direct result of God great love, wherewith he’s extended. Jhn 3:2
