Mission Conference

JESUS IS WORTH IT!

2016-wow-jesus-is-worth-it-art

This Sunday will kick off our Annual Missions Conference Week.

This is an exciting as well as a vital time in the life of our church.

We have opportunity to get to know some of our mission partners, and we learn how we can become more connected with the glorious work of the gospel both near and far.

This year’s conference is entitled “IS JESUS WORTH IT?”. We know the answer, but we still need encouragements in living as if Jesus is always worth it.

Make sure you and your family participate in as many events as you can!

FOLLOW ME

Follow Me - for Kyle

 

Our Mission Conference is moving to a new time of year.

Due to snow and ice occasionally interfering with Mission Conference events, it will now be held in November.

Out conference theme this year is “Follow Me” and will take place November 19th-22nd.

The purpose of our Mission Conference is to educate and challenge our hearts in regard to being Great Commission people.

CONFERENCE: “LIVE LIFE SENT”

This Sunday begins our eight day Mission Conference. Our theme this year “Live Life Sent” is inspired by Isaiah 6:8

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

The week will be filled with events geared to inspire and challenge our hearts as we seek to be a people God uses to reach those who are near and far. Our passion for missions flows out of our passion for Christ!

We love his gospel and want to proclaim it to all who will hear

We love his kingdom and want to see it established in the lives of many

Will you do your best to be an active participant in this years Mission Conference? That does not mean you need to feel pressured to attend every event, however there are two things it can mean.

1.  You can commit to participate in at least one event beyond what you would typically attend in a normal week of church involvement

2.  Ask God to give you a fresh heart for serving His gospel

Pastor Pat Tedeschi and his team have prepared a wide range of thought provoking activities that will also be fun to attend.

On Sunday March 10 and 17 our morning services will inspire us in Living Life Sent

This Sunday  Dessert night and conversation with John  and Sharon Harvey, our mission partners at ASELSI
