Why Mission Education?
Knowledge is key to mission involvement. With an understanding of the needs of the world and what the church is doing to meet those needs, we are more likely to commit to the support of missions through prayer, giving, communication, and going? Why not grab a book to take home with you today? They take only 1 - 2 hours to read, and you will be inspired by what is happening on the Nazarene Mission Field.
MISSION READING BOOKS
Mission Reading Books are here! Six new exciting adult mission books are in the foyer. Accept the challenge to read all of them this year, by signing them out this week. If you want to "listen" to them, there are cassettes and CD's available. Wilma Johnson is willing to answer and questions you might have.
