January 2023 Newsletter

Welcome to the January 2023 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 used that verse to give us a 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 and missionaries that we support.  You can click into websites that will help acquaint you with their ministries.  You will find opportunities for upcoming mission trips that you can become a part of.  Our desire, that through this newsletter, you will become active in the missions of 3BC as we attempt to be witnesses our “Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 
Each Sunday morning before worship, please pay attention to the announcement slides.  On those slides you will see specific missions and ministries you can pray for each week. 
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
