This week’s lesson, “Continual Praise (Psalms 71:

Marketplace Evangelism is us sharing Christ when we are out and about. The believers of the early Church were in the mode of sharing Christ to the lost wherever they were, in the streets, the marketplace, fields and the word of God increased (Acts 6:7, Acts 16:5). Nothing has changed for believers today and nothing has changed for God. The message of the cross is still foolishness to those who believe not, but to us, i,

The BereanWay this Week


The BereanWay Sunday – “In Times Like These” The Bible says that perilous times will come, but in reality, those times are here. We have seen some and witnessed some amazing things in our life and they will only get worse as we come to the end of time as we know it.

Today, Pastor Tony echos the words the writer of Hebrews (10:24-25) to exhort one another on a daily basis as we see that day approaching. Join us in the auditorium of New Berean Baptist. We hope you will be encouraged and blessed.

COMING UP THIS MONTH

Join us for a time of our knowing and growing in our “special power

VBS theme this year is God’s Superheroes. We’ve been called to “Reach Up & Reach Out” to win souls for Christ. Reach up for divine wisdom and power and reach out to rescue the perishing men, women, girls and boys we cross paths with.

The calling on our life as Believer, comes with a “superpower” called the Holy Spirit of God (Rom. 8:9). This spirit has been endowed in us to comfort us (Jhn 14:16), direct us to the truth of God (Jhn 14:17) and wisdom (Eph. 1:17). God expects us to draw from him these elements of his Holy Spirit and move the world we live in for the Kingdom to come

The BereanWay – Sunday

Join the family of New Berean and Senior Pastor Antonio “Tony” Harris, in worship, fellowship and the preaching of God’s word this Sunday
The BereanWay and Pastor Tony on YouTube

Sundays were made for fellowship, worship, singing songs of praise and hearing the word of God preached. Here at The BereanWay of New Berean, we are excited at this special opportunity to be in obedience to the scriptures to collectively gather, encourage, be encouraged and be ready to serve each other for God’s glory (Acts 4:32-35, Heb. 10:24-25).

As we face our daily challenges, it’s a blessing to know we have a family of like-minded people who we can look to for support and the Lord our God has given us that in the local church. So, don’t neglect the blessing of being in fellowship.

If you are in the 757-area code of Virginia looking for a local assembly committed to the commission of Christ, give New Berean a consideration and be our special guest this Sunday.

On four separate occasions, the Lord is recorded as adding to his church (Acts 2:41, 2:47,5:14 & 11:24) as he saw fit. It is his will to add to his church. If he chooses to add members as he sees fit, then it is the church’s responsibility to receive them, nurture them, care for and feed them. To give them love, friendship, fellowship, a place to grow, mature and serve.

VBS Saturday July 27, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Ages nursery to adults are invited

Vacation Bible School 2024 focuses this year on the “superpower” we all as believers have in the person of the Holy Spirit of God. If you were a Superhero, what would be your “superpower”? The ability to fly, see through walls, superhuman strength?  But you’re not a Superhero, you’re a Christian. What sets you apart from other people? Your faith in Christ is what you have been endowed with. God has given you his faith to believe and achieve. It is the gift of God (Eph 2:8-9) God’s “Superheros” we are and, in this year’s VBS we will adventure the wonders of God through faith.

1st & 2nd Tuesday of every month

Pastor Tony is taking us through the Acts of the Apostles and the establishment of the early church through the evangelistic efforts of the disciples of the Lord

Marketplace Evangelism is how the early church as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles was established and exploded as it did. Everywhere there was a crowd, there were the follows of “the way” sharing, telling and inviting people to Christ. Even though we are venturing out every 3rd and 4th Saturday of every month, marketplace evangelism can and should take place whenever we as disciples of Christ are out the crowd of people who need to know him as their Savior. Join us as we “Reach Up to reach Out“, Its The BereanWay.


Community Support and Resources

Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is offering their Seniors Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program, Click on the image for additional information and resources we as seniors can take advantage of.

One of our most challenging issues of our communities is that of our loved ones battling with dementia and Alzheimers and their support team. The Home Instead network is committed to helping seniors and their families cope with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, and to helping seniors remain in the comfort of their own homes. Explore the opportunities available and share them with other who too can benefit.

Clean Up Before the Clean Out

As we move to make more room within the building for training and teaching classes, we are in need of ridding ourselves of some unused things like these chairs. If you would like some of these chairs for your own, contact one of the Trustees to pick them up. We have about 30 chairs and they will be given out first come first serve.

ADVENTURE WITH GOD – BELIEVE GOD FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE – EVANGELIZE WITH THE GOSPEL

Pray for The Pastor

“And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

God…

has declared the role and office of the overseer, bishop and pastor to be divinely ordained by him. We are strongly urged to esteem our local assembly leaders “very highly” for their work’s sake.

Seeing the Pastor in the manner that God does is important to our spiritual maturity and to the overall work of the local New Testament church. God has called these leaders out to oversee, lead, feed, disciple, teach, care for, comfort, love walk along side with and shepherd his people that they may be free to be about the Father’s business.

During the next seven days, let join together and encourage one another to esteem the under-shepherd of God here at our local assembly in prayer..

Day 1Jeremiah 3:15And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Father, thank you for the pastor, the shepherd you’ve given us to feed us, guide and care for us. Give him the wisdom, energy and strength to do as you have called him.

Day 2Hebrews 13:17 Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” Father, remind us of our responsibility to subject ourselves to your authority by subjecting ourselves to his pastoral authority. You have assigned and called him for this work and we have been called and assigned to obey them.

Day 3Ephesians 4:11-12And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”. Father, thank you for the gifts that you have us, your body, your church. He is given to us to help mature and grow us up in you by teaching and equipping us as you desire.

Day 4Acts 20:24b…so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” How would you like for us to finish our own course, Lord? Help us to serve our calling in obedience to your will. As you had assigned Paul, you have assigned our Pastor and you have assigned us. Our calling and election is made sure (2 Peter 2:10) when we are deliberately and willfully all about our Father’s business.

Day 5 – I Timothy 3:4-5 “one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?) If a pastor cannot properly handle the affairs of his own house, he does not qualify to lead God’s people. Father, lead us to be a blessing to the Pastor of our local assembly and his wife and his family. Let us see them as his priority and move towards allowing him time with them by being in our individual places and roles of ministry and be found faithful. May we help by protecting and defending him and family against those busybodies, backbiters and lovers of evil communication by rebuking them showing the dangers of wrongfully accusing “God’s anointed” (Heb. 13:17b).  

Day 6I Peter 5:2 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind”. Father, thank you for the word that you have given him to give to your people. Thanks for the clear teaching and understanding we have received from his hours of labor in the word. Thank you, Father, for feeding us through your servant who has been faithful, diligent and studious in knowing your word.

Day 7I Timothy 3:1This is a true saying, if a man desires the office of a bishop, he desires a good work“. Serving the Lord is a good work. Being about our Father’s business is a good work. Father, may we never forget or to remind our Pastor of the “good work” of caring for the flock. May we always seek to please you in our personal lives, finding excellent fellowship with our church family (Ps. 16:3, Ps. 84:10) and supporting the work of our Pastor.


Follow up your time in prayer with a time of service using the gifts and talents disbursed among you as the Lord has given. As the theme of “Team Berea” speaks, we are all endowed with individual gifts suited and fitted for our individual roles to fit within the body of Christ. May we find ourselves faithful, accountable and teachable (F-A-T).
