It's deeper than you think. Does this mean all of us will go to Africa or someplace in Missions? Probably not, but maybe. The idea is that we Go when God asks us to go.
One way we Go is by getting involved locally. We have already offered up our facility for the homeless to use when the temps dip below zero, but there are more ways to get involved.
On Point ministry is "going." They are taking the good news of Christ to State Street and handing out food and necessities to the homeless, BUT, more importantly, they are praying with people that need ministry. One man on the street pointed out that he "can get food and shelter, even from churches, but NO ONE has ever prayed with me." We want to take this seriously. This is a great ministry for the whole family. Here is their ministry PDF.
We are in the planning phases of a Personal Essentials Pantry for Sun Prairie. This is an exciting ministry for us as we share the Gospel and minister to those in need. Other giftedness will rise to the top as well for this ministry as we could do all kinds of things right alongside of the pantry. Info PDF
Get ready to Go, it is going to be a wild ride in 2013.
