It’s officially December and the Christmas season is in full swing already. People have been shopping and decorating and as the saying goes; “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”
Whose birthday is it? We all know it’s the Lord’s, not ours! “Christ was born on Christmas day!” Yet, everyone else receives gifts. It’s kind of backwards isn’t it? We really should be giving the Lord a gift!
During this Christmas, we can give the Lord a gift. Mission work abounds in the BMA. Pray it through and consider giving to a missionary family somewhere around the world. You could raise money for one of our missionaries work funds, or give to a church plant here in the States. It’s the perfect way to give to the Lord in this season. Christ came as a missionary when He came! Why not support one to honor His continuing mission on earth now!
At Central, as a church plant, we do have some needs heading into 2015. Currently we are attempting to raise an additional $5,000 to aid us in our outreach events and to complete purchasing the things we need to function in the new building. Pray about supporting what the Lord is doing here. If you would like to give, it can be sent to us directly, through our Mother Church, or through the National Missions office. Simply indicate on your check that it is for this Christmas fund raiser at Central.
Thanks in advance for your support and for your gifts to missionaries all around the BMAA this Christmas season!
