We are not commanded to mission, the New Testament has a much more profound understanding of mission than that. The New Testament understands that we are co-commissioned; God and us together in partnership. We are his hands, his feet, his voice to a broken world. Jesus gave us the great commission saying : “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mt 28:19 and 20) The challenge for each and every Christian is this: “What is God calling ME to in mission and ministry, through His Word, by the power of His Holy Spirit?”
The Missions we support
Supporting Heart, OMF, Chinese Church Support, Burma Partners, BCA, People Aid, Chaplaincy, and CMS.
This month we are focusing on Chaplaincy.
The time has come to hear more about Chaplaincy! At the October 29th combined service there will be several Chaplains to speak about their work in our schools. Please come to hear them!
YouthCare Chaplaincy is a service for the school community provided by our chaplains. A chaplain is a highly trained and accredited person, working within a school as an accessible and approachable individual for students, teachers, and parents.
Check out our Missions board or see Dee Everitt for more information. You can also go to www.youthcare.org.au
October 28th is Chaplathon, our fund raiser for the year. Please walk if you can (sponsorship forms available) or just make a much needed donation.
The number of Chaplains grows each year. What amazing work God is doing!
