Faith Promise 2017-2018
– “Around the World and Across the Street”
The Mission Committee normally meets on the second Sunday of the month about noon (directly following the 10:30 Service) in Room 101. The next meeting is Sunday, October 14.
Just a friendly reminder to not forget your Faith Promise pledge for this year. We have been running short the last couple of months. Our missions depend on us. Faith Promise monies are not pulled from General Funds, only those designated for Faith Promise are sent to missions. Our original Faith Promise budget was created based on the pledges received last October.
On Sunday, October 21, we will set our budget for 2018-2019. Please be in prayer as to what your Faith Promise pledge will be for next year. On that Sunday we will have breakfast during the Sunday School hour, therefore there will be NO Sunday School that day. A special speaker from Lake Aurora, one of our Faith Promise missions, will speak during all three services.
Monthly Mission Focus
September’s focus Mission is Johnson University Florida. Johnson provides a quality, affordable Christian education for those who desire to impact their world for Christ. They are committed to high academic standards and a close-knit family environment in the context of a culturally diverse community. JUFL bachelor’s programs – each with a biblical and arts & sciences core – include Bible and theology, ministry leadership, teacher education, intercultural studies, counseling, business, music and worship, and preaching.
Formerly Florida Christian College, Johnson University Florida is part of the Johnson University System. Today the Johnson University System holds accreditation by SACSCOC and programmatic accreditation by ABHE. JUFL offers bachelor’s, master’s, Ph.D., and associate’s programs across three campuses – in East Tennessee, Central Florida, and online. Each campus reflects the University’s mission to equip individuals for Christian ministries and other strategic vocations to extend the kingdom of God.
