WORLD MISSIOns OFFERING
For 2018, some of our national and international partnerships are funded through your love offering gifts above the tithe to the World Missions Offering. Our goal for 2018 is $175,000. Each of these partnerships receive a percentage of the offering given for the year:
- Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
- Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
- Honduras Orphanage Emmanuel
- Honduras Medical/Dental
- South East Asia: Breaker People
- Send St. Louis
- Send Salt Lake City
- Operation Christmas Child
We are commanded by scripture to "make disciples of ALL nations" (Matthew 28:16-20). The challenge to our Red Bank family is to engage in connecting people to Jesus and making disciples here in our own context through missional living, intentional disciple-making, and spend at least one week of our year in another context around the nation or the world. One week equals 2% of our year, leaving the other 98% of our time to invest locally.
The Engage team, in response to God’s leading, has put together strategic options for accomplishing the spread of the gospel to an unreached people group, the strengthening of the existing church through national and international partners, and the planting of churches worldwide where it does not exist. Begin to pray and act on where to spend the 98% of your 2018 year locally and the 2% in another context.
We desire to connect people to Jesus, one gospel conversation at a time in our local area. We provide these options to mobilize our members into the local community:
Local mission projects to impact our community through workdays several times per year to share the love of Christ in tangible ways. All you have to do is show up and serve. These dates are planned: May 19 and August 25 with other dates TBD.
1st Saturday of each month at 6:45 a.m., we serve breakfast and have gospel conversations with the homeless of Chattanooga at the Community Kitchen downtown.
