Summary Report of FBCCH Mission’s Committee for January 31, 2021 Business Meeting
“Action – Within/Without” - Proposal: No person left behind, no person left out! –
The Missions Committee completed its proposed budget for 2021, which was approved at the January 31st business meeting.
In preparing this year’s missions budget, the committee was asked to reevaluate each mission supported by FBCCH. As part of this effort, there were several questions considered:
a. Should we continue to financially support this mission?
b. Are there other ministries in which our members are active but that we do not support?
c. Do we have an in-house sponsor for each mission?
Please give thought to whether you or someone else you know within the church would act in the role of in-house sponsor to any of the missions we support. This person will serve as a liaison or voice between that ministry and our church.
We help support missions and ministries at all levels – local, regional, national and international. If members are not familiar with the work of these different missions, check out the bulletin board across from the church office, look them up online, and/or discuss them with the members of the Missions Committee.
One of the goals of the Missions Committee this year is to encourage greater participation by the congregation of FBCCH in mission activities. While financial contributions are critical to each of the ministries we support, we encourage all to be personally actively involved in some aspect of missions. What has God called you to do?
In addition to ministry sponsorship, another opportunity we are considering to help encourage ministry participation is to initiate monthly “contact” or “vision” outings to various local and regional ministries – “a day on the town”. These visits will be designed to provide hands-on experiences with each of these ministries coupled with gaining a deeper understanding and insight into their work, vision, approaches and needs. Stay tuned.
