Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." ~ Matthew 28:18-20.
Greetings from the Missions Committee
Our theme this year is 'Go' into our world with the message of Jesus from Matthew 28:19, we also wanted to make sure that verse 20 was included in that sending. In verse 20, Jesus promises to be with us in the going. Often we are fearful of sharing our faith with others. What are we going to say? How will the people respond? The focus is on God's presence working through us to others. The focus is on others. Missions is not just a reminder that our Church Family collectively is ministering through others around the world and in our community, but also a time for us to reflect on our responsibility to go to our neighbors, co-workers, fellow students and all those that God is bringing across our path.
