As we peek just around the corner, we notice Mission Possible is coming very soon. We are asking everyone to join us in this season of giving through this great act of service. If you cannot participate for one reason or another, then choose to support the workers by joining us daily for dinner, as well as our nightly devotional. Once again this year, Jason Masteller will be leading our song service, and there will be a number of speakers throughout the Mission Possible event. If you are new to Mission Possible, there are many things to do, in addition to our nightly games, fellowship, snacking and cheering the corn hole champions onto victory for the second straight year. All in all, it is a great time for the Port Huron family, so please make a decision to either participate as a worker or as a supporter. Either way, through your presence with the family, all will be blessed.
And that reminds me. If you are planning to participate and have not signed up yet, please make it a point to do so as soon as possible. We have a few shirts left from last year, and I will make them available for anyone who is a first year participant. Unfortunately, once these shirts are gone, there won’t be anymore, so sign up and come talk to me about your shirt.
One final Mission Possible thought. Mission Possible is designed to be a blessing to the community, and to shine the light of Jesus into the lives of our homeowners. This project is a “no strings attached” offer. I agree, it is great when someone responds to our efforts by surrendering their life to Christ, but that is not how Mission Possible is to be measured. Mission Possible is measured by the number of people in the congregation who step up and say; “here am I send me out there.” The Bible reminds us in 1Corinthians 3:6 that God gives the increase. He will touch the hearts of those whom He will; ours is to keep being Jesus to our neighbors. I hope we can count on you this year, as we take to the streets with the song on our lips “I know that my redeemer lives.”
