Mission Possible 2015

"Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?”  And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these - you did it to me.”

Matthew 25:37-40

Jesus could not speak more clearly than he does in this passage from the Gospel of Matthew. It is when we act in his name to comfort those in need and sorrow that we are most faithful disciples. Indeed, in addition to telling the Gospel story in worship, we are to proclaim God’s love to others through our mission as a central hallmark of our Christian faith and life.

Led by our Mission Committee our Session has dubbed this year as “2015: Mission Possible.” Much as we emphasized Faith and the Arts in 2014 this year we will be redoubling our efforts to live out our faith in Mission. Each month there will be an opportunity to participate in some form of mission. The goal is for each member and friend to have a “hands on” role in mission within this year.

*****

The English Conversation/Culture Class started in 1985 is a part of the Special Ministries to the Japanese at our church. We have been providing the English conversation and culture class to Japanese women coming here for a few years due to their husbands' employment

It has been great to provide God's love to help them communicate better and understand the different culture in order for them to live in America comfortably.

ESL class will run in the spring from March 24 until June 2. In the fall, class will meet from September 29 until December 8.

*****

Each of us – no matter how young or old is invited – to open our hearts to service in Christ’s name as we respond in love to Jesus’ command “Follow Me.”

The ambitious goals of “2015 Mission Possible” are:

1.Strengthen and deepen this congregation’s understanding and active commitment to mission as a central expression of Christian faith and life.

2.Offer opportunities for each member of the congregation to participate in a “hands on” experience of mission within the course of the year adding our time and talent to the commitment of our treasure to mission for the sake of the world.

3.Come to a full understanding of Christian mission in its global, national, regional and local dimensions, providing concrete manifestations of each of these dimensions within the life of the congregation.

4.Establish on-going relationships between the congregation and its mission partners in global, national, regional and local contexts.

As we engage in mission together, let us hold close Jesus’ words “when you did it unto the least of these you did it unto me.”
