The New York Mission Team has had a great weekend distributing coats, prayer-walking, and seeing the sights of the city. The remainder of the team who stayed for a Sunday activity at Bridge Community Church will return today around 1:00 PM. Pray for their safe travels. Thanks again to all who donated coats, hats, and gloves. We were able to help almost 100 families and distributed well over 300 coats. Pray for New City Church and Bridge Community Church as they continue to reach people for Jesus Christ in New York City. It is a blessing to partner with these two churches.

This is the Week of Prayer for International Missions and we are all encouraged and challenged this week to pray for the 4000+ Southern Baptist Missionaries serving around the world. Here is a link to the Prayer Focus for each day this week. Simply click on the tab that says Week of Prayer and video and written stories of the featured missionaries each day are shared.

Our goal for the Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions is $15,000. During this season of giving, may your best gift, your largest gift, your greatest gift be to the One whose birthday we are celebrating. Giving a generous gift to the Lottie Moon Offering shares the good news of Jesus around the world and proclaims that He is the Savior. Happy Birthday, Jesus!
Have a blessed week,
