WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
 
Opportunities to be “On Mission”
As a church, we are always “on mission” with God to bring the gospel to people who need Jesus!  Everything we do as a church is for the sake of the Kingdom of God, and in connection to the Great Commission.  There are times when our focus is more intense on the mission, and when certain opportunities call for greater involvement!  The next several weeks and months have several opportunities to be “On Mission” that I don’t want you to miss.

Pastor Aaron is leading a mission trip to Chicago July 17-21.  Many of our students and several adults will work with the church plant Sow Chicago, and a mission family that our church is partnering with who are NAMB church planters.  Please pray for the work that is being lined up for them to do in those few strategic days.  Pray for safety as they travel and as they work with the Coble family to build connections for the new church.  And if any of you would like to go on that trip, contact the church office today!
On Wednesday, July 24, we will have a mission family serving in China and Malaysia who will be with us at 6:30 to share what God is doing and how our church can be a part of working with them!  I’ve been on three trips to China to work with this family.  Our church would be blessed to partner with them!  And that same evening, we will have our Christmas in July OCC Packing Party and dessert fellowship!  We will pack 150 Operation Christmas Child boxes to help reach children all over the world in preparation for our larger packing opportunity in November.

These opportunities are special moments in the life of our church to pray, to give, to go and to love people the way that God loves people!  We need to mark our calendars, make these moments a priority, and let nothing keep us from the opportunities God gives us to be “On Mission” with Him!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

FALL SCHEDULE OPPORTUNITIES
With the fall schedule changes coming up quickly, don’t forget about the commitment card included in the bulletin. Prayerfully consider how you can serve or be a part of a life group. If you’d like to host a life group, help out with the children/youth, or other opportunities be sure to fill out the form and drop it in the offering plate or give to an usher.
 
ON MISSION FUND
The On Mission Fund of Columbia Baptist Church offers the opportunity to donate to needed ministries throughout the year. A portion of each offering will go to each ministry. If every church member gives only $4/week to the fund, all our mission goals will be met for the year. Feel free to utilize the brand new On Mission giving envelopes that are available in the pews or from the ushers.
