Mission Committee Report for 2016

2 Corinthians 9:7 (NKJV) – So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

Our Mission Prayer:  “God, show us the way, and open the doors to the projects you have planned for us to do.”

The Missions Committee had a wonderful year in 2016.  We began our year with a prayer that god would open the doors and lead us to what mission projects He has planned for us to do during the year.  Not only did He open the doors, but He also provided the money we needed.  For this, we say thank the Lord. During our Lenten season for 2017, we prayerfully consider you giving to our wonderful missions as we continue to provide the needs for our community and other mission outreach.  Lenten envelopes are available in the church office.

Thank you first of all to our Lord and Savior and to each of you for your continued support. Your generosity provided the means to carry our God’s plan.  Following are the programs in which your donations were applied for the year 2016:
