Engage In Local Missions
In a world that needs Christ more than ever, you can strengthen and grow the global church through ministries of compassion, developing leaders, and sharing the good news.
Blessed to be a blessing. As Christians we not only get the opportunity to share in relationship with God, but also we have the privilege to share His blessings with those around us. Those blessing are shared through us in forms of prayer, serving, and giving. We can pray for local and global missions and intercede on their behalf, praying for their staff, the people they serve, and specific prayer requests. We can also serve local and global missions by joining into the work they do, and using our hands and feet to share God’s blessings. We can also give monetary and specific needs to local and global missions, enabling them to continue the work God has called them to do.
Our hope at Faith Church is to invite you into a spiritual journey of engaging in missions.
Mission of the Month – October 2021
Mission of the Month for October:
Our Consistory has voted to participate in an urgent request we received from JP Sundararajan, Director of Global Mission for the RCA. Here is the message from JP:
“We have an urgent request. Our sisters and brothers in Afghanistan need your prayers and support. We are working with a trusted partner organization that is part of a newly formed coalition to help evacuate vulnerable people, a majority of whom are Christian, from Afghanistan. People are being safely transported out of the country as you read this email. Please join us in praying for these evacuations. RCA Global Mission has committed financially to support these efforts, but we need your help to get more people out. Evacuations will continue if the money is raised.”
We will share more about this in worship. As we live out our calling to share God’s love here and around the world, we remember the power of the gospel compels us to welcome the stranger and care for the most vulnerable. We ask you to prayerfully partner with us and RCA Global Mission in these efforts.
We will receive the mission of the month offering on Sunday, October 31, and throughout the month online (select MISSIONS under the fund menu) and through the mission giving envelopes.
