Events for Everybody

Wednesday Night Revival Meetings every Wednesday night in February. The evenings will start off with a free meal at 5:30pm, followed at 6:30pm by great music and guest Revival Preachers. A love offering will be taken. Please PRAY for God to revive us again!

BBC Focus Song for February 2022

As Beechland prays and prepares for our February Revival, we want to share with you a link for a song that we will focus on throughout February’s Revival as a kind of rallying cry for the revival. It may be a new song for you so this will be a great opportunity to listen to the song and to internalize it before the revival. The song is “Lord Send Revival” by Hillsong.

You can find it on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5EAHk3uDXs .

Or, if you have a Spotify account, you can simply search: “BBC Focus Song for February 2022” or search directly for the title of the song, “Lord Send Revival”.

January Family Fun Nights: Back this year, the Recreation Team is hosting Beechland’s Annual Family Fun Nights.

PRAY. As new arrivals are relocated here to Louisville, pray that they will be received with kindness. Pray that they will be encouraged and not fearful.
