“The Church exists by mission"
Church of the Resurrection
“The church exists by mission, as fire exists by burning.” (Emil Brunner) “Missions is the church in love with the whole world.” (Charles L. Slattery) These godly men help us understand the importance of the Church of Jesus Christ being involved and deeply committed to missions. At COR we want to become more and more a church involved in missions. We currently have a COR Missions Fund with a balance of $20,000 from a designated gift of $50,000 given by one of our member families a couple of years ago.
How are we currently involved in missions as reflected by our Church Budget for 2016? Here are some of the ways we support missions through COR:
· Church Planting in La Ceiba, Honduras (Troxells with MTW) $200/month
· Church Planting in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico (Burkempers with MTW) $100/month
· NAU Student Evangelism & Discipleship (Erin McNelly with New Life) $100/month
· Community Development with Global Hope International (Brenneman) $100/month
· Sonshine Ministries (Hope Cottage & Sunshine Rescue Mission) $100/month
· FaithWorks (twenty churches doing short-term missions) $350/month
· Compassion International (releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name) we support ten children as a congregation for $380/month
· Church Planting in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma $500/quarter
· Presbytery of the SW Church Planting and RUF Campus Ministry $300/quarter
Thank you for your faithful support of missions through Church of the Resurrection!
