The 2019 On Missions Connection planned for March 15-17 is almost here! We have almost 20 churches signed up! What a great opportunity this is for mission celebration, inspiration, information and worship! Most of the missionaries will arrive on Friday, March 15th for a meal and meeting. Each church needs to have a representative at that meeting so that they can guide their missionary to where they will be staying for the weekend.
Churches that are not hosting a missionary are still invited to be a part of the Missions Fair and the Missions Banquet which will be held at Meherrin Baptist Church, on Sat., March 16th! During the Missions Fair you will have the opportunity to walk around and meet some of your missionaries that serve overseas, in the US and even some from right here in NC! You will have the opportunity to learn about their ministries and ask them questions. We will also have a catered banquet that evening and then a powerful worship service featuring the parade of flags, great music and our keynote speaker, Rev. D. Ray Davis from the International Mission Board. There is no cost for the meal, but you must make a reservation so that we will be sure to have enough food for everyone! Reservations may be made on line at www.westchowan.com or by calling the Missions Service Center at (252)332-3235.
On Sunday morning, March 17th the missionary that each church is hosting will speak during their regular worship service. Some churches may choose to have another missionary come and share with them on Sunday night too! (If your church would like a speaker for Sunday night, please let David Ross know.) A love offering for our missionaries should be taken up at each service where they speak and sent to the WCBA Mission Service Center. For more information go to www.westchown.org or Terry Stockman at the WCBA at 332-3235 or Rev. David Ross at 587-7911. Join us for this great opportunity!
