Missions 2012

Richard Stearns states in the book The Hole in Our Gospel that America doesn’t have a money problem it has a vision problem.

Over this past Black Friday weekend a record $52.4 billion dollars was spent in the United States.  The average holiday shopper spent $398.62.  That is an astronomical amount of money which was up 6.6% from 2010 and CNN reports that most of that money was spent on themselves.  Which takes up back to the statement from Mr. Stearns, “America has a vision problem.

How are we as a church?  We need to take a look deep inside our souls and ask ourselves that very question.  How much time have I set aside in 2012 to get outside of our local church and make an impact on the community in which I serve.  Now let us be honest with ourselves and ask how much time have I set aside to make an impact on our entire world.  There are various ways to do this however, a simple yet affective way is to schedule a missions service in your local church.  We are currently scheduling our missionary services for 2012.  The need is great!  The workers are few! Thank God for the laborers who work to spread this gospel around the world.

Listed is our entire Missionary Schedule for 2012 is listed below and I would like to ask for each church in the Indiana District to take 4 services in 2012.  This is something that we all can do.  Give your people and opportunity to give to Global Missions.  Cast a vision to your people and challenge them to give.  Why? So others will be blessed and so they will as well.  Feel free to contact me at 812-361-5644 or via email at  fm@inupci.org.  In addition the missionary scheduled will be online as well at www.inupci.org in which you can see the missionaries that are scheduled to come to the Indiana District in 2012.  Please let the Lord deal with your hearts and lets bless the Kingdom of God around the world and if our giving matches our vision there will be nothing that can stop the church.
