Faith-Promise:How we support missions
Jesus said, “...You shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” - Acts 1:8
By faith, we trust God to supply our needs. We promise God to use a portion of it to support Mission work.
“Faith-Promise” is how we designate our weekly offerings to support Missions. The only portion of your weekly offering that is used to support missions is the amount indicated on the memo line of your check, or indicated on an offering envelope. For example, if your check is made out to the Christian Church for $450 and it is indicated on the memo line “$75-missions,” then $75 would be directed to missions and $375 would be directed to the general fund.
100% of your “Faith-Promise” Offering goes to support mission work
Each year, we use one Sunday to celebrate the accomplishments of the missions we support, and make our promises to support them for another year. We indicate our promise on a card, which indicates how much financial support we hope to offer, and whether we plan to offer it weekly, monthly or on a one time basis. There is no personal information on the card, for your promise is between you and the Lord.
The only reason we use cards is so our Missions Ministry can let our missionaries know how much support we hope to send their way.
Last year (June 2017-May 2018) we promised $2,400 in monthly support to the following missions:
Dallas Christian College - $100
Good News Productions Intl - $100
Emmanual Christian Seminary - $100
Institute of Strategic Languages - $100
Cowboy Up International - $100
Hope Pregnancy Center - $200
Cookson Hills Christian Ministries - $250
El Porvenir Christian Camp - $250
Alba Mission Scotland - $300
The Christian Church Starters - $400
Haitian Christian Mission - $450
We also used “Faith-Promise” offerings ($900 per month) to fund short term mission trips, special requests from our missions, and a Christmas gift to our missionaries.
We provide YoungLife with office space and utilities.
The missions ministry meets on every third Wednesday of each Month at 3:30 PM. You are encouraged to come to a meeting and find out how you can get more involved in supporting mission work.
“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
