All Southern Baptists have two mission focuses each year, one on North American Missions during the spring and another on International Missions in December. These culminate in the Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon offerings respectively. In the State of Georgia we have an annual focus on statewide missions during the month of September.
We will be studying Georgia Missions during our Wednesday night Bible Study & Prayer Meeting beginning Wednesday, September 2nd. I will begin a sermon series on the importance of missions in general and why Georgia Missions matter beginning September 6th. The ladies of WMU met just this morning and will have set a goal for our Missions Georgia offering. We will announce this goal and hand out prayer guides on Sunday morning. UPDATE: The state goal is $1.7 million and our goal at UBC is $250. UPDATE: We exceeded our goal with an offering of $280!
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 ESV
Missions has been at the forefront of Christianity since the beginning of the New Testament Church. I hope it doesn’t sound too corny but in a very real sense Jesus made the first mission trip! Join us this month as we study together, pray together and give together to support Georgia Missions.
