EFBC joins nearly 50,000 other Southern Baptist Churches in promoting the work of our North American Mission Board during March of each year. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) exists to work with Southern Baptist churches, associations, and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to reach the 259,000,000 unchurched North Americans with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting.
Since NAMB’s formation in 1997, more than 20,000 churches have been formed. That’s an average of more than 1,500 new churches every year, with a large percentage being ethnic or African-American.
You can be a part of our church’s response to the exciting challenge of reaching North America for Christ by Praying … Going … and Giving! Use the Prayer Guide inserted in this bulletin each day this week to guide you in prayer on behalf of NAMB and its work.
As you pray, remember Wayne Bristow and Billy Fuller as they travel to New York City later this month in anticipation of a hands-on mission trip during 2013. Perhaps the Lord will lay it upon your heart to be a part of that mission effort.
You can also participate by giving. Our church receives a World Mission Offering every Sunday. Sixteen percent of that offering goes directly to the North American Mission Board as our gift to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. In 2011, that gift amounted to $30,489 above and beyond our ongoing Cooperative Program support.
