Hear some Good News! Missions Week: Oct. 24 - 28, 2012

In a world that is constantly bombarded with bad news, it's good to take a break from that and hear something positive for a change. This week at Brookside, you have the opportunity to be encouraged and learn about what is going on around the globe during our A Heart for the Harvest missions conference.

The conference features 5 missionaries, working on 4 continents: North America (Mexico), Europe, Africa and Australia. (I would love to tell you more, but in a world that persecutes Christians for sharing the gospel, I can only urge you to come hear it for yourself.)

This year's mission theme song is titled For the Sake of His Name, by Anderson and Habegger.  It opens with the command: Go to the every nation. The 2nd and 3rd stanza sum up the Good News of the gospel that is for all of us:
Love the unloved for the sake of His name;
Like Christ, befriend those whose heads hang in shame.
Jesus did not condemn, But was condemned for them.
Trust gospel pow'r, for we once were the same.

Rescue the lost for the sake of His name;
As Christ commands, snatch them out of the flame.
Tell that when Jesus died, God's wrath was satisfied.
Urge them to flee to the Lamb Who was slain.

The conference begins on Wednesday night at 7pm with a missionary from Africa sharing his work there with orphans of Aids victims and also their training of nationals as missionaries. Thursday and Friday 7pm services showcase missionaries from Germany, Mexico, and another area of Africa.

Sunday will be missions focused too: Mexico - 8:30am and 10:45am services, 9:45am. Sunday School time will be shared by the 2 missionaries from Africa. The 6pm evening service will focus on Australia and South Africa.

Children (K - 4th grade) will have their own special program with a different missionary, during each worship time during the conference.

So come and see what is going on in other parts of the world and plan on being encouraged. Brookside Baptist Church is located at 4470 N. Pilgrim Road in Brookfield, WI. (North of Capitol Drive, south of Lisbon Road)
