Global Missions Month
October is “Missions Month” and for 4 Sundays beginning October 2nd and ending the 23rd, West Hills will be focusing on global missions.
Kicking off the month on October 2nd - our Fellowship Potluck. This month as we celebrate the many nations of our world, we’re asking if you have a favorite or fun recipe from another country to please bring that dish - enough to share for 8 people. A variety of foods will make for a delightful and adventurous meal!! Of course we will have pizza, very Italian! **Please note this will be the last Fellowship Potluck until January.
October 9th and 16th we will look at West Hills’ own missionaries that are out in distant fields. There will be special prayer cards you can pick up to post at work or at home to remind you to pray for those of our West Hills family that have obediently followed the Lord in taking His word to the ends of the earth!
October 23rd is Compassion Sunday. We will learn about the organization Compassion International, and how you can sponsor a child in another country. This is a great opportunity to reach globally to make a difference without leaving home!
God was not content to sit back and wait for us to come to him. Instead the bible testifies to a God who goes out of his way to redeem people. At the heart of God’s mission is to reconcile humanity to himself. This happens as people experience the grace and forgiveness offered in the gospel through Jesus. Because of this, we are to represent Jesus in both word and action wherever we are in this world. - From our Core Values statement on Mission
