Throughout the year, SPC supports many local and international missions. Sunday September 25th, we will be celebrating these missions during our services. Each mission will be represented at a table in the gathering place, and representatives will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.
There are ten missions being highlighted on Sunday.
Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship is a mission organization based in Minneapolis which focuses on planting churches in the midst of unreached peoples. The organization has been planting churches since 1975, and continues their work today.
One Mission Society is headquartered in Greenwood. It is an organization right in our own backyard training missionaries and sending them all over the globe. Many of the missionaries our church has sent and supports serve through OMS.
TEAM is a global missions organization partnering with churches to send missionaries all over the world. We will be visited by Kathi Small, a daughter of our congregation, from her mission teaching position in Venezuela.
PAACS stands for the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons. This organization trains African doctors to be surgeons. There is a huge need for trained surgeons in African countries, and PAACS is a direct response to this need.
Faith Ministry works with families along the border of Texas and Mexico. They provide nutritious meals, school supplies, and biblical lessons to children. They also work building houses for families in need of a stable home.
Crescent Project’s main focus is to reach Muslims around the world with the Gospel. Through training and prayer, Christians learn to understand Muslims and better minister to them. The crescent project works to overcome stereotypes and bridge the gap between the Christian and Muslim world.
EPC WO is the mission sending agency associated with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. This organization’s goal is to go to the least reached places, and specifically focuses on the Muslim community.
Men for Missions is another Greenwood organization. They provide training and resources to men and their families in the mission field. Men for Missions works closely with OMS, and is committed to helping members realize their abilities through helping others.
John 17 Ministries works to teach and mentor leaders, churches, families, and businesses by teaching Christ’s vision for His church in John 17. They have ministry teams serving in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and here in the United States.
Lastly, our very own Global Missions Committee will be present. This team of people is responsible for overseeing our church involvement in local and international missions. The team also provides support and resources to the many missionaries we support.
As you can imagine, Sunday will be an exciting day. It is a blessing to see SPC’s involvement in bridging the gap and spreading the gospel. In addition to highlighting each of these organizations, we will also be launching our Operation Christmas Child initiative.
We believe missions is an essential part of our faith at SPC. Jesus called us to proclaim the Gospel to the world. Please join us on September 25th to learn about each of these missions and their work. Pray for these missions as they continue to take the gospel into areas of the world desperately in need of light and truth. Together, we can continue to be His church around the world.
