New Life in Christ Weekender
A short reminder of events happening this weekend
[Scroll down for a list of events.]
Dear New Life in Christ Church Family,
You are invited to one of the biggest events in the New Life in Christ calendar year. This Sunday is Super Sunday, the Sunday that closes out our mission’s month focus and launches us out into our year of missions for the year to come.
This year we have the privilege of finishing out our missions month by hearing from Jeff Marlowe. Jeff is the director of “Global Training and Development”, a ministry of Mission to the World (our denomination’s mission agency). He and his wife, Mischa, served 13 years in Quebec and Senegal planting churches and teaching theology to national pastors. You can learn more about him from his ministry website at http://www.gtdtraining.org. I’m looking forward to what he has to share with us.
Jeff will be preaching in the morning and helping in the evening service. Let me especially encourage you to come to our evening service this week. We will hear from Jeff and Pastor Doug, commission our missions team, and hear our faith promise totals for the year to come (you can submit your Faith Promise cards any time this week, including Sunday morning and Sunday evening).
We also have a special gift for our 10-30 year olds (and a few others as well). At the start of missions month, Pastor Doug challenged us to pray for and reach out to the “10/30 window”. 50% of the world’s population is under the age of 30 and 70% of that number are between the ages of 10 and 30. It is a demographic we need to reach both here and around the world. In view of this mission we have something special for every 10-30 year old who comes to the service.
The time is short and the opportunity is great. It is a time for commitment. It is a time for prayer. It is a time for all of us to seek the Lord. We worship a great God and we have a world to reach with the gospel. It is a great encouragement to meet together and pray for this vision together. I hope you can come.
