Adults on Mission is one of Emmanuel’s many groups that focus on missions locally, regionally, statewide, nationally and around the world.
Volunteering time at Main Street Mission is just one of the many ways that this group seeks to impact others for Christ.
Another focus for this group is the “Mission of the Month,” where they select and implement specific mission and ministry projects that encourage a spirit of giving. Adults on Mission member Patsy Byles sees the group impact through these projects as focused and personalized.
Usually we can see the local needs and know what’s needed to ask for specific help, Patsy said. “We see what people really need and hear what they ask for,” she said
From the Fall Food Roundup for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home to collecting clothing for the homeless, monthly projects vary in how and where people are impacted. There is even a special corner in Weems Hall dedicated to the Mission of the Month.
Emmanuel has always been a very generous church in giving of their time and resources to help others.
The “Mission of the Month” for March focuses on North American Missions to collect financial resources for Annie Armstrong and CBF Global. “God’s Mission Rooted in the Gospel” is this year’s theme and Emmanuel’s goal is to raise $4,000. This Sunday, March 9, we will officially kick things off with a week of prayer.
Looking forward, here is a list of upcoming “Mission of the Month” projects:
April – Crafts for Tensas (Lake Providence in Tensas Parish).
May – CBF Catalog Project in memory of Bobbie McGraw for a medical mission.
June – Families on Mission & Ministry projects. There will be a list of ideas to pull from, but you and your family can implement your own ideas.
July – Bags of Hope for school children.
