“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matt 28:18-19)
We believe that Jesus was absolutely serious about this commission and we have a responsibility to obey!
As a church we are committed to support 4 key missions as a tithe of our received offerings – Barnabus Fund, Frontier Services, Teen Challenge and Nigel & Lyndsay Rice working in Lebanon with Pioneers.
So part of our regular giving as a church goes directly to overseas and Australia wide ministries to people in great need of the gospel.
We also support Prison Fellowship Victoria through the annual Easter biscuit bake; Tear Fund Very Useful Gifts during Advent; Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes, and a key mission partner is Compassion Australia and the Child Sponsorship. (can we please have these logos also)
We encourage everyone to sponsor a child (or several) through Compassion, and to participate in letter writing with that child.
We have taken two teams over to Manado Indonesia, visiting the Compassion projects and children there, which were truly life-changing experiences for everyone involved.
Perhaps you could join us on our next trip to Indonesia in 2019?
