Guest speaker Ryan Keith shares about his work with Forgotten Voices and talks to us about seeing evangelism and service as reconciling people to God. We show that we’re yearning for heaven to come to earth when we do our works of service so that people can know God and be made new in Christ. In Yearning for Heaven to Earth, Ryan Keith calls us on Missions Sunday to leave the church huddle and get in the game.

Missions Sunday 2016

Sermon Title: Mission Opportunities for a Post-Christian America
Scripture Reading: Genesis 12:1-9; Colossians 1:11-14; Philippians 1:9-11

From the beginning God’s people were sent out on mission from nations where Christianity was not the norm. We should be encouraged that this did not prevent them from being effective as missionaries, and in some ways gave them an enthusiasm and humility that was beneficial to their calling. We can learn from these accounts, as well as the experiences of our own missionaries, transferrable principles that can help us be on mission in our own post-Christian context.

In Mission Opportunities for a Post-Christian America, Jonathan Lloyd (Director of BIC US World Missions) shares how the church is called to live our faith out of love and humility.
