kristinEvents

Next meeting is Tuesday, July 3 at 7:00 pm.

Ray Scott will be sharing about his ministry providing audio Bibles and Proclaimers to pastors and missionaries in Central America. Also, Spent for God: The Life of Adoniram and Ann Judson will be shown. Adoniram was the first American foreign missionary. He worked in Burma (Myanmar) and despite suffering, persecution and imprisonment, translated the Bible into the Burmese language. His translation is still used today. All are welcome to attend.

Missions group meets at 7pm the first Tuesday of the month in the Rock Church.

Global Missions Group desires to inform and bring an active awareness to others about the efforts and directions of those who pursue and seek the weary or perishing to reconcile them to the Lord as well as encouraging prayers among the saints for this purpose.
Christian missions is obeying Christ, sharing Christ and relying on Christ.

Many people picture a missionary as a person who leaves their job in America to evangelize and plant churches or schools in Africa. Missionary work encompasses far more than that. African Christians reach out to Muslims in the Middle East. College students spend their summer teaching English in Asia. A family in America befriends and witnesses to students from Mexico. A truck driver responds to an international disaster, meeting both physical and spiritual needs.

Christian missions is not limited to international types of ministry. While believers should faithfully support those who travel and go to the unreached, all Christians have the mission to share Christ on the home field with family, friends, coworkers, and the community. All these are missionaries as long as they bring and share Jesus and His life saving eternal message of Good News! The Christian mission of sharing Christ does not end with a sinner’s salvation. The commission was to make disciples, not immature believers. Thus, Christian missions involves not only evangelism but also discipleship.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matt 28:19-20

Aid the Iraqi Christians!

(Breakpoint) For too long the U.S. government has done too little to aid Iraqi Christians. That has to change.

It takes courage to be a Christian in Iraq, more courage than I or I’d bet most of us can even imagine. Some of the courage we see from our brothers and sisters there comes from the church’s deep roots in the region.  (Read More)

(OneNewsNow) In a ruling that is sure to send shock waves through the nation, Canada’s Supreme Court ruled 7-2 against Trinity Western University’s (TWU) Law School. In effect, what the court declared is that universities must choose between biblical standards and accreditation. Put another way, the court ruled that Christianity and higher education are incompatible.  (Read More)

(LifeNews) An Illinois county declared itself a “Sanctuary for Unborn Human Beings” this week to express its opposition to abortion.

Much in the same way several large, liberal cities have declared themselves “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants by not enforcing federal law, Effingham County leaders hope their county will be a place where unborn babies are protected from abortion.  (Read More)

DOJ to Churches: To Each His Zone

(FRC) At Ragamuffins Coffee House, owners are probably most famous for this blend: community service and worship. That’s because the Maryland spot isn’t just another business on Laurel’s Main Street. It’s run by a church that opens its doors — and its arms — to the area’s homeless and needy families, offering coffee six days a week and a shot of God everyday, especially on Sunday.  (Read More)

(Breakpoint) What happens if your school district crosses a line with its curriculum? What do you do now?  Here are some words of encouragement.

Last month, we learned that the Orange County California Board of Education will not allow parents to remove their kids from classes that discuss “gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation.”  (Read More)

Social Media Giants ‘Friend’ Extremist SPLC

Watchmen MinistryWatchmen Ministry

(FRC) They’re four of the biggest names on the internet — and right now, they have one thing in common: a dangerous partnership with SPLC. Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Twitter are no lightweights when it comes to market influence, so the news they’re all leaning (in some way or another) on the extremists at Southern Poverty Law Center is giving conservatives plenty to think about.  (Read More)
