The Colville SDA Church recently voted to create a Missions Ministry, which may function as a small group or as a committee which meets regularly. The guiding principles of this group include:
To impact world missions by choosing at least one world site which we support personally, financially, and prayerfully.
To commit to the worldwide mission of the church.
To become involved in fundraising, education and churchwide awareness of missions and invite the entire church's response and participation.
To involve young people in this ministry.
To provide an opportunity for people to personally experience the blessing of impacting the challenges and needs of the mission field.
The first meetings of the Mission Ministry recently took place. We will research four countries- Ethiopia, India, Philippines and Thailand; and look for opportunities to invite others from our community to work with us in a mission adventure to bless the work of those already working there. We will specifically look for medical, school, orphan or building projects where a team could be of help.
