Mission Awareness Sunday Resources: April 29, 2018

Celebrating Mission Programs at Home and Around the World

Spring is a season of renewal and growth. It’s also the perfect time of year to celebrate and raise awareness of the PCC’s many mission programs at home here in Canada and around the world.

Join us on Mission Awareness Sunday, April 29, and pray for current and future mission staff, and all the programs and events that bring to life the fellowship and connection of our mission in Christ.

Please feel free to use the following ready-to-use resources on Mission Awareness Sunday, or any time during the year that you want to shine a light on our mission work together.

Call to Worship
Psalm 95: 1-7a
Leader: O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
All: Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
Leader: For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.
All: The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.
Leader: O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
All: For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
