Pandemic Information

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."  John 16.33

Berea continues to conduct worship services, Christian education, and pastoral visitation, but for now we're asking you to watch our services online, take advantage of "distance learning" opportunities, and let us know if you need special assistance.

May Stay-At-Home Bible Reading Challenge

It looks like our time of separation is going to last through most/all of the month of May. Prayerfully, we will be all gathered together again in person at the start of June. Knowing this, I bring forward a second challenge to the disciples at Berea.

Having gone through the Gospels together, let’s go through the time right after that in the New Testament, the time of the Church. This will encompass the Acts of the Apostles and all the letters to congregations in the New Testament. In order to accomplish this we will need to read 3 chapters per day, with a few exceptions. Seeing how those early Christians lived and served in action and teaching directs us wonderfully today!

May our Lord bless this time in our faith towards Him and love towards one another!
