Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread the Good News. We can each bear witness to our friends, coworkers, community members and even to some family members who have not yet accepted Christ into their hearts. Through Faith Promise, we can expand beyond the local church and help support other people and organizations who answer the call and are spreading the Gospel in many areas of the world. Some of our missionaries are actually at personal risk in countries where Christians are persecuted and yet they continue to serve. This is faith in action!
Through Faith Promise, we are able to reach the Church, our Community and the World.
Christmas in September
This year we will be sending Christmas boxes to all the missionaries we help support in all parts of the world. We will fill them with items that might be tricky to obtain where they are serving. Please take a tag from the Christmas tree in the foyer and donate the items requested by October 6th. Be sure to note your items on the sign-up sheets and help yourselves to the information about the missionaries who are fulfilling Jesus’s Great Commission. We will also have a “stuffing party” on Sunday, October 13th. If you would like to help, please contact the church office or make a note on the Connection Card.
The Great Commission
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:19-20
