Sunday night the Grace Church missions team hosted a missions celebration! Those who attended thoroughly enjoyed the variety of experiences throughout the night and walked away challenged to be more engaged in our responsibility to “reach the nations” with the good news of Jesus. This is the second blog in our series for this week highlighting different elements of the event in case you weren’t able to make it! (Click here if you missed part 1!)
Those who attended got their passports stamped on a journey around the world! Tables were set-up representing different short-term missions opportunities and ministries engaged by Grace Church people this summer. Tables included:
- Jane Vanbuskirk – Domincan Republic
- Rachel & Zach Peters – Spain & Portugal
- Jade Landis – OBI Philippines
- Urban Hope
- GROW Thailand
- Camp Conquest
After visiting each table, “passports” were “stamped” and those with full passports entered a give-away to local “international” restaurants!
One of the required stops was the Grace Meeting Room, where the team from Haiti provided a more extensive presentation of their trip. Our prayer has been that people would have at least one interaction that would lead them to be more engaged in missions through Grace Church.
How are you “living on mission”? We’ll give you some practical ideas tomorrow!
