Hello Lighthouse family!
This is an exciting weekend for you to be here! Every year your mission team at Lighthouse hosts our Annual Mission Conference. This year, we will have all of our mission partnership represented. We invite you to come Sunday, April 22, at 4:30pm, to join in celebrating all God is doing locally and around the world.
This weekend, we are privileged to have as our guest speaker, Kendra Shaw. Kendra is the Global Engagement and Discipleship Director of the Alliance Northwest. In her role, she helps to connect Christian and Missionary Alliance churches to worldwide missions. Kendra and her husband, Randy, have been married for 33 years and have one son, two daughters, and one grandson. They have planted two churches in the Vancouver, WA area, and are passionate about developing leaders and watching people come alive as they follow and submit to Jesus. Kendra has been an encouragement to our team as she has shared her view and vision for engaging churches in God’s Kingdom work. Today, she brings a message of hope and invitation for our church family.
We are proud to be a part of one of the largest missionary organizations in the world: The Christian and Missionary Alliance. Our team continues to pray and to seek God’s direction regarding our role in Gospel expansion.
This year, our theme is simple: “A Christ-Centered Family, Reaching Out . . .”
- To Love: We will be dependent upon the Holy Spirit to live out His loving fruit through us.
- To Proclaim: We endeavor to both “show” and “tell” the truth of God’s love.
- To Reach: We will lift our eyes to see people on the move, people overlooked, and people lacking access to the Gospel.
- To Launch: We aim to be a church that will send and support people who are on mission to expand the Gospel.
Today is a part of God’s story being shaped and told through the Lighthouse Family. Today is also the beginning of a wonderful journey for each one of you as you find your place to engage in God’s wonderful plan to reach all people groups with the love of Jesus!
May this weekend be a blessing to you and to your family.
Now, as we begin this worship service, may God fill you with His incredible love for YOU!
Pastor Paul M.
