Missions involvements and opportunities

MISSION MOMENTS
On the first Sunday of each month, TCN presents a “Mission Moment,” a time to consider the various opportunities within Nazarene missions and areas of Nazarene compassion. Carolyn Weis is director of Nazarene Compassionate Ministries at TCN.
January: Information from Nazarene Compassionate Ministries regarding what compassion looks like and what the organization does.
February: Background and details regarding the Alabaster Offering.
March: A child-sponsorship event with information regarding the Nazarene sponsorship program and the opportunity to choose a child to sponsor. You’ll be able to sponsor a child individually, by family, by small group or Inhouse group.
April: We will focus on the Nazarene Disaster Relief Program. This will be a time to learn about the ways the Church of the Nazarene helps during times of disaster.

LINKS MISSIONARIES
Please continue to pray for our missionaries: Steven and Rachael Beiler, Kevin and Joan Brunk, Ralph and Debbie Kleinfeld, Jeff and Susan Myers, and David and Naomi Philllips, as well as for the ministry of Co.Mission Toledo. Also, we ask for prayers for the health of retired missionaries Ted and Joan Esselstyn.

CRISIS CARE KITS
The kits are collections of necessary items a person might need in an emergency. In January, we will collect two hand towels; in February, a sturdy comb; in March, nail clippers; and in April, BandAids. Contact Anita Clutter at nene410@woh.rr.com for more details.

ALABASTER OFFERING
This is an offering TCN’s children collect each Sunday during February. What you donate will go toward building or purchasing buildings or land for Nazarene missions work.

NATIVE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
A trip to the school in Sun Valley, AZ, is planned for March 7-14. Following the trip, we will hear from participants about how God used representatives from TCN at Sun Valley. Contact Kathy Voris (voriska.te@gmail.com) or Deb Hoff (debhoff@woh.rr.com) for details about the trip.

BOOK-READING CONTEST
TCN will have a reading contest in February and March. Any mission book read from now until the contest ends will count. Find the missions books in Room 105.
