Acts 1:8 is a dedicated time for us to turn our attention towards missions. During the months of December to February we will hear sermons, stories, and updates on how our church is playing a part in making Christ known in all nations. This focused time also gives us the opportunity to give towards the work that is going on. Our goal this year is to give $200,000 above and beyond what we have budgeted towards missions.
If you would like to give online, go here and choose "Acts 1:8" on the "general fund" button. You can also give in person by check or cash with the designation "Acts 1:8."
The International Mission Board has almost 5000 full-time missionaries serving in all parts of the world, prioritizing the darkest and hardest places, where the gospel has not yet penetrated. We partner closely and share their vision to see countless more missionaries SENT in the days ahead, including many from Watkinsville, bringing the message of Christ where He has not yet been named.
The North American Mission Board focuses on mobilizing and equipping churches and missionaries to plant new churches in 50 strategic metropolitan areas, referred to as ‘send cities,’ throughout North America. $.25 of every dollar given to Acts 1:8 will go to NAMB to train, resource and send more than 5,000 missionaries involved in church planting and compassion ministries across the United States, Canada and their territories. One example of this work is Jonathan Mosely, one of our partners, who n 2018 will plant Kings Hill Church in the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston.
