3BC@Missions - 3BC Missions Newsletter

Welcome to the October 2022 3BC Missions Newsletter.  In this newsletter you will find opportunities to pray, give, and go.  Our mission statement comes from Acts 1:8 where we are told to be witnesses to the entire world.  3BC has adopted this verse as our ministry strategy to be witnesses locally and across the world.  As you read through this newsletter you can begin to pray by name for missions that we support.  In addition, you can click into websites that will help acquaint you with their ministries.  You will also find opportunities for upcoming mission trips that you can be a part of.  Our desire, through publishing this newsletter, is that you will become active in the missions of 3BC as we attempt to be witnesses “in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  Acts 1:8
