MISSIONS, MISSIONS, MISSIONS!!!!

I can't tell you how proud I am of the individuals that we have set apart to serve in our new Missions Team. In just the few short months since their official launch they have already prayerfully positioned us for numerous opportunities to reach out to our community, along with countless prayers and planning sessions regarding reaching out to the world.

And it looks like the month of October is going to be full of new opportunities to glorify our Risen Lord!!! It all begins on Oct. 2nd, with a meeting of the entire Missions Team to discuss an exciting opportunity to share Christ's love outside of our country's borders. Then, on Oct. 19th we will be having another Local Outreach at the Apple Dumpling Festival to both share the Gospel and to raise needed funds for upcoming Missions Opportunities by selling baked goods. And, finally on Oct. 31st we will be having our 2nd Trunk or Treat event, (aka. Reformation Day), where we pray that God will bless us again with nearly 100 people coming up Grace Mountain to be loved-on in the name of Christ Jesus!

The Missions Team has definitely lived up to their mandate to Pray, Plan, and Position the rest of Grace Baptist Church to glorify God by sharing His love and His Gospel. Now, it is imperative that we all prayerfully consider where and how God is calling us to join Him in the kingdom work He has prepared for us to do. If you feel led to participate in any of these exciting Missions opportunities in October, please contact Pastor Mark or a member of the Missions Team at your earliest convenience…for as the Apostle told the generous Believers in Philippi “Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.” (4:17)

 



September 2013

 

A beloved sister in Christ gave me a copy of the Bible Broadcasting Network's Monthly Newsletter recently and in it was this incredible quote, from an anonymous source, about God's Eternal Word…

This Book Contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, doom of sinners, and happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is it’s Grand Subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given to you in life, will be opened at the Judgment and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor and condemns all who trifle with its holy contents.”

It was too good to not share with you, especially since two of our upcoming messages in September will be focused on the “pure milk” of “the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23 & 2:2). So beloved, grab your Bibles and join us this month as we explore the only inerrant, infallible, and inspired source of revelation in the world…Christ is it’s Grand Subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end!!!
