June is Meal for Mission Month so here is some information to help.

Throughout June, we will be focussing on supporting our missionaries with our Meal for Missions Appeal again.
You will receive a small white envelope inside your Order Of Service into which you can put a donation if you wish, no matter the amount, to send to the missionaries our Church currently support. Mission month will also adopt a 3-D approach, meaning that while we are primarily raising support for our missionaries, we are also focusing on how we as individuals and as a Church in our local community can be agents of mission in our daily lives. The command of the Great Commission was not just for the first disciples but for each and every one of God’s people 
in every generation. What a privilege it is to have such a call as serving our Creator God, the One whose very heartbeat is mission. 
Our God demonstrated to all of us how He is a missional God by sending His only Son on the greatest mission the world has ever seen!
This mission has been passed onto us as God’s people, by the Great Missionary Himself, to fulfill with His help, wisdom and strength. 
Keep an eye on the bulletin & an ear out for the Church announcements to see what’s happening during the month of June, and how you can get involved. Every little helps make the biggest difference in the lives of those who desperately need it. We can all play our part.
Remember, “If you think someone should do something, maybe you are that someone.”
