Why Are We Here? Kids activities which consume my day Pulled in too many directions Summertime!!! Don’t we have more important things to do?
The Real Reason We Are Here “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9 NIV). Community CommunionMission The Gathered & Scattered Church – Hugh Halter
Heart Breaking Realities In the last 10 years, how many people ages 18-35 are connected in congregations? 4% – where are your/our young adults? How many people do not know Jesus as their Savior? Currently there are 200 Million lost people in America – that would completely fill the top 100 cities in America How many people has the LCMS lost in the last 30 years? 500,000 members Source: PLI
Up, In & Out Individually In my family As the body of believers Individually In my family As the body of believers As we read the Gospels, Jesus had 3 great loves (Know Christ) UP IN (They will know..Love one another) OUT (Make Christ Known) “A balanced Christian life & community needs this 3 dimensional pattern” MC = Missional Communities
CPLOM Mission Statement 2 Goals Support the ministry of its member congregations Make and nurture disciples for Jesus Christ 2 Methods Provide Christian learning and renewal opportunities Build up the community of believers 1 Purpose Reach out to the world in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Christ centered in all that we do! Communion Mission Community
Community, Communion & Mission Jesus didn’t wait for the lost to find him. He went out to find them. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost He took the initiative and He paid the price To release moments of connecting people to Jesus we need to be taking the initiative to be out in the midst of the people who need Christ in their lives Exciting to be part of the ministry at Camp Perkins!!
