The Seeds You've Sown
In the day-to-day rhythm of our jobs in the mission department, we have the privilege of constantly being surrounded by your generosity. For every dollar that is tithed, ten cents are returned to mission to be stewarded by our FaithServes Leadership Team, allowing us to love our neighbor generously and justly.
We’re involved in several partnerships, including organizations and individual missionaries, so we hear many wonderful stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness. We would be remiss not to share these stories with the very people that contribute to make these partnerships possible, so we have created a Mission blog as a space to share all that is happening around us. Our immediate hope is to better connect you to the missionaries we support (they’re incredible people and most of them sit in the pews with you on Sundays!) and to the life of the ministries we partner with so that you would be encouraged by the way the Lord is moving in and through our congregation.
Additionally, our prayer is that through these stories, you would be challenged to plant more seeds—not only financially, but foremost through the ways the Lord is calling you to be discipled and make disciples in the course of your everyday life. This is the wonder of following Christ. He is constantly inviting us to partake of Himself, to taste and see that He is good, so that in His sufficiency we would do righteousness and justice for our neighbor as He has first done for us. As we set out to love our neighbor in the sphere the Lord has given us, the Lord also beautifully molds and shapes each of us further into the image of Christ as we continually depend on and surrender to Him.
So join in and read the stories. Get in touch with these missionaries, one-on-one, and encourage them in their work. They are not some weird breed of super-Christians who are impervious to the evils of this world, to being discouraged, to feeling lost and alone. They are regular people like you and me who have followed God’s call into a particular way of caring for the world. Don’t be afraid, they don’t bite, and they would love to be known by you!
