INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES CONFERENCE 2017

Sunday Service, February 12, 10:30 am
C&MA International Ministries Presentation Rev. Tim Crouch, VP for  International Ministrires at the National Office.

 DURING THIS WEEK OF EMPHASIS ON INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES:

We have heard from Agape Source (ministering to international students, especially at EPCOT), Choices Women’s Center (Orlando), Church Multiplication (Arabic Church of Ft. Lauderdale pastor, Gerges Gerges) and TEAM, The Evangelical Alliance Mission (Lexi McNair).  

We have also heard about  the Philippines (Joe & Mercy Nieboer), Haiti (William Lowry & Carmelle Beausejour), Bridges of America (Pamela Deshazar), Good News Club (Carol Rich) and CRU [formerly Campus Crusade] (Milt & Carolyn Monell).

After each presentation we prayed corporately for that specific ministry. Please continue to pray for each of the folks who are ministering both locally and around the world.  And remember that it is  OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE MISSIONARIES TO THOSE AROUND US, WHEREVER WE ARE!

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING  Today immediately following service there will be a very brief Congregational Meeting to elect two members to the Nominating Committee. Those two members, along with two elders and Pastor Dan Daly, will nominate elders to be presented at the Annual Congregational Meeting in March.  All members are strongly encouraged to stay.  Please be praying and pondering who you want  to elect to this important committee.

CANNED GOODS FOR PRAIRIE LAKE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  Continuing today and throughout the month of February, we are collecting cans of soup (and other canned items) for the Food Pantry at Prairie Lake Elementary School. Please bring as many cans as possible throughout the month, to meet the needs of our “mission school.”

S.O.A.P.ING IN FEBRUARY  In February the challenge continues to take some time each week to S.O.A.P through a passage in advance of Sunday service.  Then come each Sunday prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  For next Sunday, February 19th, the passage is I Peter 1:1-12.
