Giving to Missions
Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus commands us to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you." This requires our time, our skills, and financial resources. Generosity in the giving of both time, talents, skills, giftedness, and financial resources will be required for our church family to be most effective in following this command.
With so many demands from our everyday lifestyles, it's sometimes challenging to let go of some time, share my skills and talents, invest more of my financial resources kingdom-invested. Yet, as a believer, I am to faithfully and consistently do these very things to reach out in sharing the gospel message with people I see and meet locally as well as globally. Our church invests in ministry partnerships and opportunities where church family members are able to engage in missions in sharing their time...skills, experiences, talents, and financial resources to share the gospel message and to meet needs locally, within our state, in North America and Internationally.
Prayer is essential on every effort - "pre" - "during" - and "post" - any project or mission effort.
A large part of engaging is sending people and resources into a mission project area. This does require some financial resources. If you feel you are unable to physically go into a particular mission field area - be a prayer warrior on behalf of those who do serve - want to help send financially - what a blessing to be able to give to the "SendMe" fund so that others are able to be our feet, hands and voice!
