*URGENT PRAYER This Week for the Next Supreme Court Justice (today is Call2Fall – a day of prayer):
” Father, we pray for Your choice, not man’s choice, for the next Supreme Court Justice to replace the newly resigned Anthony Kennedy. We believe this new judge will bring us one step closer to the reversal of Rowe vs Wade and to the ending of abortion.”
*URGENT PRAYER This week for Iran’s Protests:
“Father, we pray for the Iranian protesters who are raising a powerful and historic voice against the Ayatollahs this week.”
What demonstrators have been chanting has surprised many and can be found at #IranProtests: chants such as “Our enemy is right here; they lie when they say it’s America”, and “We don’t want the mullahs’ rule”.
“The people of Iran are shouting at the top of their lungs that the Iranian Regime DOES NOT represent their voice. They have been chanting in videos captured on Twitter and Instagram things such as, “NO to Gaza!” “NO to Palestine” “No more funding terrorism, take care of us instead!” “Death to Hamas and Hezbollah!” This is the first time in any protests or strikes where the people have included, “Death to the Dictator” in their demonstrations. The living conditions, that include water scarcity, immense pollution, and extreme poverty, are the final straw and there is now widespread anger toward the government funding war and terrorism instead of taking care of their people first.” And the tweets are coming that the clerical regime is responding brutally.
How to Pray for Iran:
- Pray that God will use these hardships to orchestrate opportunities for disciple makers to comfort the fearful and broken
- Pray for heavenly provision for basic needs like food and safe drinking water
- Pray for an increase of faith and strengthening for the believers inside this country.
- Pray that the believers would be guarded from all spiritual attacks, accidents, and tragedies.
- That they would have unity in their service to God in this hour. For all those in prison, that they would be faithful to God unto death. (prayer points by Global Catalytic Ministries)
*PRAYER & ACTION ALERT: All state senators to vote on Assembly Bill 2943 during the week of July 2nd (likely on the 5th)
New California Bill Outlaws Helping Anyone with Unwanted Same-Gender Desires or Gender Confusion
The chair of the California LGBT Caucus recently introduced a bill to outlaw Christians and others with certain Biblical views from helping people with unwanted same-gender desires or gender identity confusion. The implications of this legislation spread far beyond regulating the type of counseling offered by licensed counselors, who are already banned from helping minors with unwanted same-gender attractions. Several legal experts have confirmed that this bill targets the ability of religious non-profits, churches, and pastors from teaching and practicing their faith regarding gender orientation.
“The language used in this bill casts a wide net calculated to entangle religious institutions and ministers,” said Kevin Snider, Chief Counsel Pacific Justice Institute. “Any exchange of money for goods or services that provide a biblical perspective on the power of the Gospel to deliver from certain types of sin springs the law and entraps the ministry.”
The bill would also ban books from being sold in California that tell people to trust in the power of Jesus Christ and His Gospel to help them change their same-gender attraction or gender dysphoria, according to Alliance Defending Freedom.
AB 2943 prevents adults from setting their own therapy goals. AB 2943 violates the First Amendment by banning sales of books and church events that help people live according to their faith. AB 2943 uses threats of lawsuits and punitive damages under the Consumer Protection Act to punish people for speaking about views the government doesn’t like. Call your California Senators and Assembly members this week and tell them (respectfully) to vote no on AB 2943.

A Letter from Bethel to Friends & Members of the LGBTQ+ Community
By Elizabeth Woning April 14, 2018
To friends and members of the LGBTQ+ community who have been concerned by Bethel Church’s recent public statements.
My name is Elizabeth Woning. I co-lead (alongside Ken Williams) a Christian ministry called Equipped to Love. I’m a member of Bethel Church and I’ve been invited by its leadership to share my thoughts here and speak on their behalf because of my background in the LGBTQ+ community.
There is pending legislation (Assembly Bill 2943) that focuses upon therapies addressing sesuality. In that matter, our congregation aligns with the heartfelt desire to protect all those who identify as LGBTQ+, but this legislation reaches far past those protections into free speech and free choice. For that reason our leadership took a very great risk to speak out.
You see, Bethel’s congregation pursues God for all types of miracles as reflected in Scripture. People come from around the world to receive prayer because of that core value. Bethel has concern that this legislation could be construed to limit testimonies of the impossible, the unlikely, and especially the unusual power of a good God to answer prayer, which is offered through Christian faith.
While standing firm on Biblical principles, Bethel has always cultivated an atmosphere of worship and adoration of Jesus. Bethel Music unites Christians from different congregations across the world. We are committed to honoring and respecting one another where differences of opinion could cause offense, valuing relationship for the sake of our community. Members of the LGBTQ+ community have worshipped among us for years.
I’m here in the middle, standing as one who spent meaningful years as a lesbian living among gay people in the LGBTQ+ community. My faith journey exposed areas of my life that were painful and unresolved. My gay and lesbian friends supported me for years in my journey to find peace. Without their care and concern I might not be here today. Nevertheless, only the love of Jesus brought me wholeness. My journey with Him led me away from lesbianism. Fundamentally, the power of the Christian gospel, being “born again,” leads to transformation and change. My attractions to women slowly dissipated as I embraced my born-again identity. Today I am married to my husband of 13 years.
By making a stand against this bill, Bethel acknowledges my experience is not isolated. While seeking to embrace and love all people, they have chosen to honor those whose paths have been similar to mine. Few with my experience speak publically. During the years I embraced lesbianism, in the 80s-00s, it was risky to openly be a lesbian. I attended a Presbyterian seminary “out” in an era that was rare. But today it is just as risky and misunderstood to have left that lifestyle.
In fact, there are many who experience same gender attraction but do not identify as LGBTQ+. In their core they do not feel that is who they are. This “questioning” people group seeks greater self-understanding and clarity in their identity through counseling and various resources. Bethel desires to protect these deeply personal faith journeys, no matter how the individual identifies, in order to protect free will.
Our heart is to love and honor all people, even if they disagree with our beliefs. We as a church want to continue to be a safe place for everyone seeking God. Because of this, I am reaching out to NorCal OUTreach for the sake of creating dialogue and understanding, but especially to create safety for the LGBTQ+ community. We value and honor men like Armando Mejorado whose courage and commitment are making a difference in Redding. Humbly I ask that we do something unique in Redding by fostering unity and respect in the midst of disagreement.
