Happy Spring Church Family!
Spring is a favorite of mine! It brings my favorite holiday ever, EASTER!! Along with celebrating our new lives in Christ, we enjoy watching new leaves on the trees, new plants spring from the ground and new livestock for some. You may have noticed a new configuration being worked on in the Missions area of the foyer. Let’s talk about that!
As the Missions Committee, one of our goals is to keep our church family here informed about what is going on with the church family around the world that we are supporting specifically. We have been giving regular presentations at our family meetings and will have an in-person visit from the Warwicks in fall! We are working on putting more information on our section of the web page as appropriate.
That brings us to the wall area which is another piece that will help us to help you know how to pray for those around the world. In the coming months, expect to see information cards about each of our supported missionaries placed around the map. We also plan on having part of that area hold some missions-focused books for borrowing and maybe even some artifacts from those countries where our missionaries live or go.
We want to make this area one that is dynamic and encourages all of us to think about the impact that our support as a church has in the lives of our missionaries. Yes, how we pray and give matters. Isn’t it exciting to think about how God might use our efforts to bring new lives into His family? Praise God that we get to be a tiny part of His bigger and better plan! And who knows? Maybe He will call you to play out your part in one of those countries on the wall!
