Acts 1:8 Mission Celebration … March 25th & 26th
In Acts 1:8 Jesus gives us a specific set of marching orders. Empowered by Holy Spirit, we are His witnesses, sharing the gospel in the normal routine of our daily lives, and intentionally giving witness to all parts of the world. We are His plan to reach the world with the gospel and the salvation of the lost.
In our association we have set aside a time in March to reconsider and refresh our commitment to be on mission with Jesus. We have invited a group of folks who are on mission to encourage us to be on mission as well. On Sunday March 26th these missionaries will challenge us to rekindle our passion for souls.
We will have two opportunities on that Sunday to be challenged. During the AM service in participating churches a missionary will speak. The second opportunity will be Sunday afternoon at 6:00 PM at Statesboro First Baptist Church. All churches are encouraged to send their folks to this large group gathering with all of our missionaries for a time of worship, sharing, followed by a time of one-on-one mingling with the missionaries.
A highlight of the Sunday evening time will be the introduction of three church planters from Cincinnati with whom our associational churches will be partnering over the years to come. This will be one way we call fulfill our orders to witness to the uttermost parts of the earth.
So mark your calendars for March 26th and make plans to participate with your church on Sunday morning, and with “the” church on Sunday evening at Statesboro First Baptist.
