Dear Lord, It's Monday. Sometimes this day is the start to a great week, and sometimes it's the start to a week with trials. Either way, you are with us. Please calm the storms in our hearts, and be with everyone in the city. Help us to know how deep, how wide, and how high is Your love for us. Help us to hold Your word in our hearts, and repent and run to Your arms when we sin against You. Draw those that have not accepted You as their Lord and Savior to repent and submit to You. Bind the enemy in Jesus' name and please bless the works of our hands, Lord Jesus. In your holy and precious name we pray. Amen

Good morning everyone! We hope you've had a good week! As we arm ourselves this week, we just want to share Christ's strength with you. "14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family[c] in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 14-19). May the Lord bless and keep you this week! Your friends at the Bethlehem Center in South Chattanooga

Happy Friday Everyone, Today is an awesome day! We just wanted to share some news with you all about the V-Team that you help support. Today you allowed 12 V-Team students to learn outside the classroom, and have important conversations in a personal environment. Thank you. We were able to take the young men and women on a "Vision Tour" to Amazon Fulfillment CHA-1. They asked questions, learned about opportunities to have their college education paid for, and even got to try a task that Amazon employees do daily, before heading to lunch. The most important thing however, is that we were able to have some meaningful conversations, and learn about how our little brothers and sisters think, and interact. In this world, they are constantly being bombarded about who they should be, where they should live, and who they can become. That is why these trips matter. They open up the door for them to see other options, and for us to hear about their struggles. They also give YOU and us direction on how to pray for them. Please pray for God to flood them with intimate knowledge of who they were created to be this year. Please also pray for more funding, so that we will have more money to show all the children here at the Beth, the abundant life they are worthy of because Jesus paid the price for our sin. Here are some pictures of our little brothers and sisters. We appreciate your prayers. Your brothers & sisters at The Bethlehem Center

Good afternoon everyone! We had a blast from the past visit today, and just wanted to share it with you. Sara Jaquenette worked as the Program Director for the Good Shepherd's Fold Daycare for about 5 years after receiving her degree in Early Childhood Education. Sara, who goes by Jackie, remembers working with 0-5 year old children. She recalls serving hot food, and looked surprised as she recounted stories about children see and remember her to this day. She even met Rev. Sallie Crenshaw, a co-founder of the Bethlehem Center. After leaving Good Shepherd's Fold Daycare, Jackie went on to teach at Chattanooga State for 23 years, before retiring. It's always neat to meet people who worked at the Bethlehem Center toward it's beginnings. Somehow, even this is a blessing. #BlastFromThePast #HIStory #LivesChanged

Good morning everyone! Be encouraged today. God often asks us to carry a cross that looks different than everyone else. Sometimes it makes us insecure, and sometimes others don't see the necessity of it. In John 18:11, Jesus was talking about His burden to die on the cross for our sins. Peter tried to stop it by drawing his sword to slay the enemy, but Jesus was committed to drink it with gladness. WHY? John 17:1-2 says, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify You, since you have given Him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given Him." All so that the love with which God loved Jesus may be in us, and Jesus in us (John 17:26). Be encouraged. You have been made "holy", which means you are set apart if you have received Christ. Your journey may be very different, and that does not make it wrong. Trust in the Lord because if He sent you, He WILL equip you. Call all His name if your burden is heavy and you have not already submitted to Him. "His yoke is easy, and His burden is light" Matthew 11:30.

Hello again! We just wanted to share some amazing news with you, and ask for your prayer. This evening, we have a group coming in from Sneedville, TN. for a "Who Is My Neighbor" celebration. They're going to spend time at a lock-in with some children in Alton Park, and learn about how to conquer their battles through Christ. On Saturday, they will spend time with, and give food to the homeless, and also give gifts to the kids at the Chambliss Center for Children. Please pray with us that the Lord's will be done in each of these children's lives. Pray that He will call each one by name, and that their differences will unify, not separate them, in Jesus' holy and precious name- amen!

Happy Friday everyone! There is nothing that makes our days more joyous realizing that Jesus carried our burdens and freed us to have a relationship with our Creator. We pray the Holy Spirit will give you that revelation deep in your soul this morning, in Jesus' name. -Your family in Christ

Thankful to the Lord today for delivering our brothers and sisters in Alton Park. When we get tired He storms in and provides more than we even asked for. It is good to be a child of the King. Please, call on His name no matter where you are today. You don't have to clean yourself up- you can't- we can't. Blessings, Your friends at The Beth
