Missions
Partnering to share joy

 

Joy to the World

Joy to the World is our annual season of further giving and receiving with our PBC missionary and ministry partners to bring God’s joy to our community and world.  We do this through a “prayer, care and share” strategy Oct 21 – Dec 31.

PRAYER

Ways to pray for our partners:

Come to our Persecuted Church Prayer Meeting Nov, 18th, 12:15pm

Add prayer to your connect groups, commute or meals with family or friends.

Ask a partner to add you to their prayer update list.

 

 

CARE

Ways to care for our partners:

GIFTS – Mail, ship or deliver a care package or gift from you or your connect group.

AFFIRMING WORDS – Write an encouraging letter or email

ACTS OF SERVICE – Volunteer with one of our local partners.

TIME – Hear from one of our partners below this fall.

SHARE

Ways to share finances with our partners:

Give directly to our partners by going to their profile at pbc.org/missions-gallery

Give to our partners through Joy to the World through December 31st below.

You can also give to our PBC Missions Fund to have PBC’s Missions team and Executive Committee to direct your gift where it’s needed most in 2019.

 

Hear from our partners!

Yet it was kind of you to share in my trouble. And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only.

Philippians 4:14-15
