Missions education and missions giving are major emphases during Advent and Christmas. We give to various missions organizations in response to the love, mercy and grace of God that we experience, hoping that through the efforts of these organizations others will come to know the grace of God experienced in and through the person of Jesus the Christ. Southside Baptist Church is receiving the annual offering for Global Missions this month which will be used to sustain Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel around the world. These individuals are working in many different capacities; however, the primary focus is building “beloved community.” These individuals share God’s love as they work to supply very basic needs along with teaching many life skills necessary for displaced refugees to assimilate into another culture. Please prayerfully consider how you will support these efforts.
Another mission effort supported, in part, by Southside Baptist Church is the Good News Children’s Education Mission in Kolkata, India. Tonight at 6:00 p.m., Subir and Eunok Roy, will share with us some updates and tell us a little about the vision they have for further ministry efforts. Make plans to be present to hear their presentation and to fellowship around the table together.
