God gave us a great first Missions Sunday! Here’s a quick list of ways God blessed:
– God blessed us with a good spirit! There was excitement in the air!
– God blessed us with a good number! We had over 100 in attendace—105 with the Baptist curve
– God blessed us with good music! Thank you to all who blessed our hearts in song!
– God blessed us with good missionary updates!
It was great to have missionaries George Lewis (Brazil), the Greens (Taiwan), and the Huff’s (Togo Africa) with us and hear about their ministries! We had a great time with them!
– God blessed us with good messages from Dr. Ed Gibson!
Our theme is grace for grace. God truly used Bro Ed to paint the picture of the grace we received from Jesus Christ! If we have received Jesus Christ as our Savior than we have received the grace of God. Grace would be His unmerited favor and blessings like forgiveness of sins, eternal life in heaven, and His daily presence and power to live each day! His grace is enough for salvation and for each and every day and trial we will ever face!
He also challenged us to respond to this grace we have received by making a public commitment to Christ, showing our gratitude for what He has done for us, surrendering our lives to Him to use for His glory, and giving faith promise Mission’s offerings.
God has given us the great opportunity to show our care and love for Jesus, His Gospel, and our missionaries by deciding to participate in faith promise missions! I pray that you would join me in giving offerings to faith promise either each week, bi-weekly, or monthly so our missionaries can accomplish their work in their field! Be sure to fill out your commitment card and turn it in during one of the services this Sunday.
God truly blessed our first Mission’s Sunday with Dr. Ed Gibson! Praise the Lord! God even blessed our Sunday giving! Let’ spray for God to really bless and work next week too. We will have our very own missionary Ralph Done with us from Manna worldwide! He will be speaking in our joint Sunday school class at 10:00 am, and in the Sunday am and pm worship services! Don’t miss out on what God wants to do in and through you, me, and our entire church family!
PS: Thank you Bread Breakers for putting on a delicious dinner for our missionaries and church family. It was a great time to connect with our missionaries and enjoy some great food!
