The best of both worlds: travel with a purpose!

June 1, 2016

Do you like to travel? There is a wide range of responses to that question. On the one end, there are those who love to travel, and travel a lot. They travel for recreation, sightseeing, pleasure, and fun. They can hardly get enough of it. On the other end are those who don’t travel much at all, except for necessity. They feel they can’t take the time, it’s too expensive and not really worth all the trouble and expense. Here’s an idea: how about travel with a purpose? Could there be some benefits that are only available by travel? Can you be intentional and purposeful with travel? Could you be a better person and more able to find and fulfill your calling by traveling a little now and then? Listen in and see what you think.

When an emergency happens, what will your church do?

May 6, 2016

Experience shows that when an emergency or crisis hits a community, people turn to churches.  They are looking for help: shelter, food, water, safety, human connection, and hope.  Unless you are 100% sure no emergency will happen in your church neighborhood, it is wise to be prepared.  Think of it this way: If your church isn’t willing and ready to help people in a time of significant need, then what are you there for?
Two local leaders tell us about the importance for our churches to be prepared to meet the needs in time of emergency, and a great opportunity coming up to help us learn why and how to be prepared.

This area of service just may be one of the greatest gifts we can give, and one of the most powerful connections we can discover to meet needs and plant.
