Missions

 

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and the son and of the Holy Spirit.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 28:19)

 

At Salem Christian church we strive to follow this mandate to go and serve others, showing the love of Christ by our actions, and providing those we help with an opportunity to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. We provide monthly support to a well-rounded slate of local, state, and worldwide ministries. Below is a listing of those whom we provide financial and prayer support each month.

In addition to the above ministries which we help financially each month we also provide prayer support to the persecuted church worldwide through observing the worldwide IDOP (International Day of Prayer) for the persecuted church sponsored by the Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) on the first Sunday in November each year. A VOM prayer calendar is on the mission bulletin board in the corresponding weekly prayer list is noted in our Sunday worship bulletin board. Prayer is a powerful resource available to all.

 

Mission related activities

 

The Mission Team meets on the third Wednesday of each month. On the month with a fifth Sunday, this is designated as mission Sunday. On these Sundays the mission team will provide a program or speaker during the morning worship service which will perform the congregation about different missions we support. The next mission Sunday will be on March 31, night 2019. It will be our honor to have a guest speaker from the show me Christian youth home Who will give us a current information about their work with children of families in crisis. Everyone is invited to be here to learn more about this vital work.

 

How to give?

 

If you wish to support a particularly ministry directly, you may do so by the following directions provided on their website. However you may also give to any of these through Salem Christian church by simply writing a check to the church, being sure to designate on the memorandum line the ministry to which you wish that contribution to be sent.

 

Also, there are brown mission envelopes on the back of the pews. You may put your gift in one of these envelopes, and market for the ministry you wish to help and place it in the offering plate. We especially encourage you to use these envelopes on mission Sundays. If no particular mission is specified the gift will be divided between the missions we help on a regular basis.

 

Note: during the month of February 2019 that year-end report for 2018 is posted on the missions bulletin board outside the church office for those who are interested.
