This Sunday, October 20, is Missions Sunday. We are asking that everyone begin making preparation to participate and make this special missionary emphasis a tremendous success. It is our goal as a church to thoroughly meet the needs of the missionaries we are hosting. Here are a few ways you can be prepared for Missions Sunday:

Pray

Start praying each day for the missionaries, the services, the preaching and the offerings. Pray the Lord will use our church to spread the Gospel around the world. Pray for the Holy Spirit to do a work in our congregation this Sunday. Please do not neglect prayer this week.[/div]

Give

Take some time this week and purchase some of the gift items listed below for the missionaries we will be hosting. Consider purchasing a gift card for each of the missionary families as well. Bring any gifts you purchase by the church office and a gift basket will be presented to each family. Also, be prepared with a “Gospel Light handshake” as you greet the missionaries after the Sunday service.[/div]

Attend

It will be awfully hard to give that “Gospel Light handshake” without being there yourself. We want everyone who can possibly attend this Sunday, to be there. Be on time and ready to focus on what your part might be in global missions.[/div]
