We sing His praises. We pray in His name. We teach His Word. We love His people. We share His message. All this and more we do together because THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Whether you’ve been following Jesus for years or are just getting started, we hope today you experience the good news of Jesus and discover how to take the next step on the path of following Him.

COMMUNITY NEWS & UPDATES

Beginning next Sunday, August 16 through October 11 we will be offering classes for kids age 3 through Sixth Grade.  Space is limited, pre-registration, and parent participation is required. Register here and learn more here.

 

  • The Table:  Ladies, sign up today for this women’s ministry that seeks to cultivate gospel-centered community among the women at Bethany through small, one-time, informal gatherings. The goal is for each group to have about 8-10 women of different ages, life stages, and backgrounds getting together for a time to laugh, chat, and make new friends. Each Table is unique because the hostesses of each Table plan their own gathering.  Sign up for The Table online at myBethany or by contacting the church office (309-692-1755).

 

  • During this season, we hope to equip you with tools to worship and grow your faith. Check out the latest updates on our new resource page from our leadership team, as well as worship service details, and even how-to videos for leading family devotions. Check it out here.

 

  • CHILDREN’S MINISTRY RESOURCES:  Each week our children’s ministry team provides a video lesson and resources so you can have Sunday School at home! Don’t miss this week’s Ranger Danger episode! Find this week’s resources here.

 

  • CARE CENTRAL: Get Help | Give Help – It’s in times of crisis that Gospel love often shines brightest. Taking two minutes to share your current needs (and the ways you can help others in need) demonstrates this love in a simple and powerful way. Click here to complete the 2 minute Care Survey.

 

  • TOGETHER DAY BY DAY: Daily Email Devotional (Monday through Saturday) – Sign up to receive short email devotionals, written by our own Bethany elder team. This daily dose of truth in your inbox will help counter the barrage of fear and uncertainty around you. Sign up on myBethany.

SONG LYRICS

Nothing But The Blood (Plainfield)

What can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
For my cleansing this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Jesus Is Better

There is no other so sure and steady
My hope is held in Your hand
When castles crumble and breath is fleeting
Upon this rock I will stand
Upon this rock I will stand

Glory glory we have no other King
But Jesus Lord of all
We raise the anthem
Our loudest praises ring
We crown Him Lord of all

Your kindly rule has shattered and broken
The curse of sin’s tyranny
My life is hidden ‘neath Heaven’s shadow
Your crimson flood covers me
Your crimson flood covers me

Glory glory we have no other King
But Jesus Lord of all
We raise the anthem
Our loudest praises ring
We crown Him Lord of all

In all my sorrows Jesus is better
Make my heart believe
In ev’ry vict’ry Jesus is better
Make my heart believe
Than any comfort Jesus is better
Make my heart believe
More than all riches Jesus is better
Make my heart believe
And our souls declaring Jesus is better
Make my heart believe
And our song eternal Jesus is better
Make my heart believe

Glory glory we have no other King
But Jesus Lord of all
Glory glory we have no other King
But Jesus Lord of all
We raise the anthem
Our loudest praises ring
We crown Him Lord of all
We crown Him Lord of all

Whom Shall I Fear

You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light
Whom shall I fear
You crush the enemy underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield
Though troubles linger still
Whom shall I fear

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side

My strength is in Your name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side

(And) nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I’m holding on to Your promises
You are faithful
You are faithful

(And) nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I’m holding on to Your promises
You are faithful
You are faithful

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side

The God of angel armies is always by my side
