Women On Mission

Our WOM challenge this year is for Christ followers to:

  • Follow His example
  • Step into the world around us
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Create opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ by all means possible

 

Here we are, already into the second month of the New Year 2019. What are your plans? Do you think those plans coincide with God’s plans? God’s plans for us are not always easy. Our days can be full of the minutia that distracts us from staying focused on Jesus.

Our challenge is to know Jesus, yield our lives to Jesus, and pray to Jesus. When we do these things, how much easier is it to show His love to those around us and around the world? Jesus wasn’t afraid to do the hard things during His ministry. He spoke the truth, whether people agreed with him or not. He traveled to help people, and He showed God’s love to people that others thought were not lovable.

As we go about our daily business, let’s be prepared to pursue relationships and be a part of someone’s life so that we can share the GOOD NEWS and to make a difference.

Our church family has stepped up to help change lives by its generosity to our Special Christmas Offering (SBC and State). All of these funds go to support our missionaries in the field. These missionaries work among many different peoples and cultures, they are often in great danger and the time grows shorter. Thank you from your Women on Mission for your prayers and offerings. Our goal of $2,500 was reached and exceeded by over $2,200. God’s Blessings to each of you.
