Mission Celebration Month is February!
We expect the year of 2016 to be a year of challenge to our lives as believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
During Mission Celebration Month, the Mission Committee’s hope is to present our congregation with a view of actions we are taking showing how Lake Bible Church is actively engaging all the opportunities the Lord is providing us to breathe life and energy into the precious mission He has given us!
This February our Mission Celebration theme is “Sending People Out for Jesus!”
During our Mission Celebration Dinner on February 29th, the Mission Committee will underscore the challenge before Lake Bible Church, namely,to send ourselves out for Jesus that we may glorify Him and bring people who do not know Him into His arms that they may receive what we have been given: complete forgiveness of our sins. We know the Love, the Freedom, the Joy that comes from this incredible Gift!!! And, to share it with others who do not is part of the Joy we want to share next Sunday evening. Please join us so that you have the best opportunity to learn how you and your church ARE accomplishing our mission of Sending People Out for Christ.
We will be highlighting our local and international outreaches and demonstrating this vital area of evangelism embraced by our mission and the absolute obligation we have, as believers in Jesus Christ, to send out believers determined to show how their love of Jesus motivates them to demonstrate the love and power and glory of our Lord.
Also, on Sunday, February 29th at 5:30 pm, the Mission Committee will host our traditional International Potluck!
During the potluck, we will discuss our Mission Initiatives for 2015 – 2016 and set forth the hopes we have for how our body can bring to fruition the entirety of our mission during 2016.
We sincerely pray this year all the Congregation attends our International Potluck so we can all rejoice together in knowing how God is providing us a banquet of great work in Bringing People to Christ while He is Building us up in His faith, and providing avenues of endeavor through which we can send people out to proclaim His Truth and manifest His glory!
All together this will be a great month to revel in our Mission of Bringing People to Jesus!
