We continue our summer sermon series Life Skills. This week we take a look the opportunities we have to get involved in missions near and far!
Near and Far – what can you do? Examples include:
Jerusalem – reaching out to those nearby who are like us.
Get acquainted with our community, its needs and groups working with those needs. We’ll seek to keep you informed with what’s happening in the Huntington area.
Take a first step of involvement. Volunteer, share your finances, pray.
Watch the bulletin for volunteer opportunities.
Judea – reaching out to those who are culturally like us, but at a further distance.
Consider involvement in a trip to Laurel Mission or helping in the work of a Camp Cotubic.
Buy a pie to raise funds for Laurel Mission community projects.
Help a church plant in another area.
Samaria – reaching out to those who live close enough to us to minister to, but have a different cultural and religious background.
Take a class about building bridges to other groups and faiths in our community. The Disciples SS class will be hosting a class called Bridges in October. It will be led by Eldon Claassen from International House in Fort Wayne. International House is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization committed to sharing the love and light of Jesus Christ with refugees and other Internationals living in the Fort Wayne area.
Interact with the world as it comes to Huntington and northeast Indiana, such as the Chinese teachers coming to HU for the TESOL class.
Go with us on a visit to a mosque in Fort Wayne or Detroit.
Ends of the earth – reaching out to those far away from us in distance and culture.
Get acquainted with what’s happening in the world.
Take a family mission trip (Sign up to get more information in the FLC today!)
Get involved in partnering with a person or family who serves cross-culturally.
