2,017 acts of Mission & Service by December 31, 2017
WHY A MISSION CHALLENGE?
When Orchard Park gathered for the Dream Summit in 2015, many people expressed a desire for more hands-on opportunities to serve others in need. Since that time, our Mission Committee has highlighted ongoing mission and service projects and has identified some new partners/programs to support. Some of the support we offer is financial. However, we know that God calls us to love and serve others with our whole selves, not just our wallets.
The Mission Committee is challenging the Orchard Park congregation to help us accomplish the hands-on work of loving God’s people! We’re challenging you to break your routine, take a risk, step out on faith, and experience the deep fulfillment that comes from sharing the love of Christ through service. Accomplishing 2,017 hands-on acts of mission and service could be fairly easy for a congregation our size, but that all depends your willingness to answer God’s call to share Christ’s love with your own hands.
HOW WILL WE KEEP TRACK?
Mission Challenge banners will hang on each side of the painting of the world on Main Street. You will find a tally page and heart shaped sticky notes nearby. Please add your numbers to the running tally, write your name and what you did on a heart (or more than one if you did more than one thing), and stick the heart(s) on one of the banners.
