"I press forward to the goal to win the prize for which God has called me Heavenward in Christ Jesus," Philippians 3:13
THIS YEAR'S THEME
This year’s theme, expresses our desire as a local fellowship of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, to challenge our church family to be “Pressing Forward” for greater impact, through giving to the Great Commission Fund and supporting our international workers in prayer. We are hopeful that more of our young people will be encouraged to Go to fulfill the Great Commission with the Alliance, as they follow in the footsteps of two career workers and three Envision workers sent out from our Lancaster Alliance over the past two years.
Please join us the week of November 5-12, when we will hear from Alliance international workers from Africa and Mexico about how God is at work through our Alliance family to prepare the way for Christ’s return!
Despite the frightening events and daunting challenges of today’s wilderness world, the deeper reality is that God is forging a road on which He’ll move toward people and move them toward Himself. This is why we need a good-news vision of the world, not a nightly news vision! God is a way–maker. Despite today’s “wilderness” world, He is active, making a way for the fulfillment of His promise. - Dr. John Stumbo, U.S. Alliance President
GREAT COMMISSION FAITH PROMISE PLEDGE
The Great Commission Fund (GCF) allows individuals who are called to serve in a variety of ministries to do so with little or no need to raise individual support. C&MA church members and friends regularly give to this fund.
As part of the Alliance family, we have the great privilege of giving to the GCF. It is our way to reach the world for Christ. We participate, along with thousands of other Alliance people, in sending a team of international workers who minister on our behalf.
What an awesome way to work together! What a fantastic opportunity to be involved in reaching lost people!
We will conclude our Global Impact Festival on Sunday, November 12, by receiving a Faith Promise from individuals and families, children and adults, to support the work of the Alliance around the world over the coming year.
