Dear Grace Church Family and Friends!
THANK YOU for allowing the Lord to use you! ENGAGE 2018 was without a doubt our best mission’s conference yet! First, the Lord answered our prayers. He was faithful to His people. Pastor Tom was the right man with the right message! The presence of the Lord was obvious in every service. Secondly, your sacrifice of time, effort and money made a huge difference. I watched you and was blessed by what I saw. We had more volunteers this year than ever before! OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD was awesome! Thirdly, the response from our speakers and missionaries was tremendous. Throughout last week I received messages from our guests. The Lord used you to encourage and bless each one of them! Honestly, I could go on and on about how the Lord blessed Grace Church and ENGAGE 2018. I deeply appreciate you stepping up and letting the Lord use you!!! Cheryl and I are blessed to be a part of Grace Church!
Last week Pastor Jamin, Pastor Chuck, and I, along with our Administrative Assistant Vicki Valerioti reviewed ENGAGE 2018. We all noted the good things! We also listed things that need to be improved. We discussed the schedule, the speakers, the services, the timeframes, the ENGAGE KID’S CONNECTIONS, and the date for next year’s conference. If you have questions or input please feel free to send them our way. Forward your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the beautiful things about ENGAGE is that we work together and fellowship for hours on this mission’s emphasis weekend! We love the time with you!
Let me encourage you to give prayerful consideration to your mission’s giving. Some of you may need to start giving to missions, while others may want to increase your giving. EVERY Christian should give to missions. Do it and see how the Lord uses you! Our Faith Promise’s Missions Team also reviewed ENGAGE. They are presently considering new missionaries and mission efforts that we can support. Anthony and Lori Willis, Chuck Barber, Roger Thorpe, Darlene Wade and Cheryl Meshaw serve on this oversight team. These are mission’s minded people who take seriously their work for missions at Grace Church! Giving to missions will always be a priority at Grace Church. Our local missionaries love coming to ENGAGE for their Breakout Sessions. We love having them as well!
THANK YOU again for supporting ENGAGE and FAITH PROMISE MISSIONS at Grace Church! When you support missions, you support the Lord’s work among the nations!
For The Nations,
Mike, Jamin and Chuck <><
