To the Faith Community of King’s Grant Baptist:
This coming Sunday, September 30th, is Mission Sunday, also known as M-3 Sunday. As you remember from my most recent sermon at King’s Grant, there are three words that represent our core values and summarize our church vision:
- M1 (COMMUNITY), living as a genuine member of the Body of Christ;
- M2 (FAITH), growing as a community of faith to become ministers for Jesus Christ;
- M3 (LOVE), living out the love of Christ on mission with Him every day.
Please join us this Sunday as we celebrate the second and third part of our vision: M2 and M3.
We will celebrate M2, a life of faith that grows into ministry, with a special volunteer appreciation. If you volunteer within the ministry of KGBC in any way, please stop by the front welcome center for a special time of refreshments at the conclusion of the 8:30 service and just before Sunday school. (This is a “drop by” gathering on your way to Sunday School, etc.) This reception is in your honor, and in thanksgiving to God for your life as one who ministers in and through the church for Christ Jesus and His kingdom. (Each Sunday that I stand before our congregation, most people I see volunteer in some way, so I hope to see all of you at the welcome area this Sunday- this will be a great time to connect with one another.)
Also, we will celebrate M3, a life lived on mission for Jesus Christ. In the 8:30 and 11:00 worship times this Sunday testimonies will be shared by some within our faith community who have been involved in specific mission endeavors this year. Also, through their stories we will all be encouraged to live as people on mission with Jesus. (Please note that our two 11:00 worship services will be combined in the main worship area; the 8:30 service will remain as usually scheduled. Both services will be identical in content.)
I am very thankful for the love and fellowship we sense as we gather together. This Sunday is going to be an incredible time together as we worship Jesus Christ our Lord. I look forward to worshiping with you this weekend.
