Rise to the Challenge - World Mission Offering

Our goal - $1050, Received to date: $235

A Prayer for the World Mission Offering 2014
Dear God, as Paul and his companions responded in the first century to the request to “Come over to Macedonia and help us,” so we choose to “rise to the challenge” in the twenty-first century. Bless, we pray, our World Mission Offering gifts that support International Ministries missionaries, staff and programs. We ask that the offering will continue to empower work like evangelism, health and healing, education and peacemaking in more than 70 countries globally. In the name of the one who commissioned us to “go into all the world!” We ask all of this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Mission Budget Report
Mission giving on October 19th was $92. We still need $142 this month in order to meet our budget obligations. Please consider prayerfully how you can help. Thank you to all who have kept their pledges up to date.
