Missions Focus 2017 is one month away but you should start planning now. Why? Because it’s YOUR story too and since there is limited seating available at several of the events, advance sign-up is required.
Missions Focus kicks off on April 1st and 2nd with our regular weekend services featuring our very own Missions Specialist Norm Edwards as the speaker. In addition to the services, there will be many tables in the mall featuring upcoming short term trips, our visiting missionary guests, and your last chance to enter the drawing for the hand-woven rug. (This rug has a remarkable story that we’ll be sharing on Monday.)
Sunday night, April 2nd, features “Food, Faith, and Foth” including a catered dinner, an inspiring talk by a former missionary kid, Pastor Dick Foth, and then announcement of the winner of the rug. Tickets are $5.00 to help cover some of the cost of the meal and can be purchased at the Missions table in the mall any weekend in March. Childcare will be provided but must be signed up for in advance. Seating is obviously limited so make plans to get your tickets early.
Have you ever wanted to find out about several missionaries in a short amount of time? If so, Speed-Date-A-Missionary is the event for you since it offers the chance to hear from seven different missionary couples serving locally, nationally, or around the world. Sign up is required to attend either Monday or Tuesday night (April 3rd or 4th) since seating is limited. This event is free. Childcare will be provided with advance registration and a light meal will be served. The program is the same each evening so pick the night that works best for you.
This is the year for Missions to become YOUR story. Stop by the missions table in the mall during the weekend services in March to find out more about our short-term trips and get signed up for a Speed Date or Food, Faith, and Foth.
