Mission Sundays: Faith Promise
2nd and 9th April are mission Sunday. These two Sundays are to refresh our visions and encourage all to be involved in missions. It is also a time to raise funds for oversea works and subsidy trips. The fund will be raised either through 1 time giving or through Faith Pledge.
My Mission Faith Pledge 2017
Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes. Isaiah 58:10-12 [NLT].
We ask each person to pray and ask the Lord what they should give to missions based on God’s provision from sources they don’t presently see.
