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

 

A missionary recently remarked “It is the open relationship that is the most powerful way to reach the lost.” That is true everywhere, and there are many in our church who each day are establishing relationships with visitors, J-l students, Standing Rock Native Americans, and neighbors, living lives that give glory to God.
It is still summer, and yet we are beginning to gear up for the fall and, as you look at our September calendar, you will understand. I encourage any of you who would like to pick up a copy of the Mosaic to read great stories of mission work around the world. Pass it on or put back on the HALL WALL board for someone else to enjoy
