Dear Benchmark Family,
We live in a world that is moving farther and farther away from God. For those of us who stand on God’s Word, this creates turmoil with a culture that has adopted lies for truth. Remember Church: our peace is found only in our relationship with Christ, in His presence and authority in our lives. I hope this clip from Sunday’s sermon encourages you, and reminds you of this truth. There is no peace in this world; we rest in Christ alone.
Because of Jesus,

Every other Wednesday Night, starting Sept 1 • 6:30 – 8:30 pm • Worship Center
Chris will be taking us through the book of Revelation this fall. We will be looking at all that God has planned for the end of this age – specifically the rapture, tribulation, second coming, and the age to come. Some App groups will use this as their “study” week, so please specify which App group you are in when you sign up (look for childcare details on the registration form).
Please register by Aug 22: Revelation Study
Missionary Information Meetings
Guille and Suzanne Terrazas serve as missionaries to Spain together with their children, Paloma (11) and Raúl (8). Suzanne and the children will be joining us for worship August 1st, and will remain in the area until August 10th. Guille is not able to join them due to Visa issues. Suzanne is available to meet with groups or individuals to share what God is doing in Malaga, Spain, and how we can support the challenging work God has called them to. Please use the email link below to schedule a time to visit with her.
Taylor’s Bake Sale
Sunday, August 15 • After the service • Lobby Area
As many of you know, Taylor Baggett, our Youth Girl’s Intern, has been serving at Kanakuk Kamps this summer. She has also been accepted into the K-Institute program for a year of focused biblical training. We are excited for the opportunity to support Taylor in this next step! She will be working during the month of August while she is home, but will also need to raise $6,000 for fall tuition in addition to moving and storage expenses. August 15th will be a special day to visit with Taylor, hear her many stories of God’s faithfulness, and bless her with support and encouragement. Pray about how you can have a part in the Lord’s work not only in Taylor’s life, but in the hearts and lives that she will minister to in the years to come.

There is no ministry or career as challenging as parenting, and yet the Lord bears us up and provides what we need at every step. We will look at some of the toughest challenges facing parents today, but also the blessings of being entrusted with souls to nurture. Come for the teaching; stay for the discussion and fellowship. We will meet every other week for 12 weeks. This class is taught by Efrain and Jamie Rodriguez.
Please register by Aug 8: Parenting Class
Ministry Highlight Month
Every Sunday in August
During the month of August, we will be highlighting each of the ministries of our church. These ministries are the arms and legs, heart and soul of the body which glorifies Christ, our head. They are vital to the ongoing life of our church, and a way for each member to participate in the life of Christ Himself. You will have the opportunity to meet with each ministry leader, ask questions, and get involved. As the body grows, so grows the need. Please be in prayer for where the Lord would have you serve.
Contact Joleen for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fall Calendar Coming Soon
Events will be available on our website soon. Everyone can also access events through our directory database, Breeze.
If you need login information for the directory, please contact Joleen: email@example.com
New Benchmark Facebook Group
Look for “Benchmark Bible Church Community Group” on Facebook. This will be a place to connect, pray, and support each other. This is a private group outside of the BBC business page, so it is a safe place to ask for prayer, find help, offer acts of service, encourage each other, and be a part of each other’s lives. Connect here.
App Groups, various times and locations, virtual and in-person
Prayer, Saturdays @ 7:30 am via Zoom and Sundays after the service by the stage
How can we pray for you? Whether you are experiencing a significant life event or a reason to celebrate, we share one another’s joys and burdens as a family, for Him.
