Men, women and children gathered on August 11th at Calvary Baptist Church in Greenfield for this year’s Missions Lifeline Conference. The overarching goal was to learn how to know God more, show His love unconditionally and be challenged to go make disciples who make disciples. Participants heard from North American Mission Board (NAMB) and International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries about front lines missions work. A great variety of breakout conferences were offered on a variety of topics like Bible Storying with Children, How to use Life-Changing Prayer Strategies to Reach Your Community, and Refugee Ministry to name just a few. Children who attended got to learn about what a refugee is and how SBC Missionaries are ministering to and reaching them for Christ, all while playing fun games, making crafts and eating unique food. A special Missions Expedition was held after the BBQ Lunch. Everyone visited each month of the year, gathering creative ways to be involved in mission action all year long. Lottie Moon tea cookies, Worldcrafts fair trade shopping, understanding how Pure Water, Pure Love water filtration helps our IMB missionaries and how Christmas in August helps our NAMB missionaries were just a few of the takeaways from the Expedition.
Missions Lifeline 2019 will be held on Saturday, August 10th at Calvary Baptist Church in Greenfield. Plan now to bring your family or a group of missions-hearted church members with you!
