Dear[subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

Because church membership matters, the General Overseer’s Office has designated September as MEMBERSHIP MATTERS MONTH. To encourage every local church’s involvement in this initiative Leadership Development and Discipleship is offering a five-session course that will help you prepare potential members for church membership.

MEMBERSHIP MATTERS materials include—a promotional video, teacher and student manuals, and a certificate of completion. This free, downloadable course includes the following lessons—"New Life in Christ," "Why Membership," "Our Local Church," "It’s Bigger Than We Are," and "What Now?"
Membership Matters for Kids!
As we enter "Membership Matters" month, how will your church engage children in this special initiative? MEMBERSHIP MATTERS FOR KIDS is a five-lesson companion to the MEMBERSHIP MATTERS course, specially designed for elementary-age children.

Membership Matters for Kids addresses the same topics found in the adult course but restated in children’s terms. Each lesson includes a teaching manuscript with object lessons and reproducible student outlines that may be utilized by pastors and children’s ministers.

Missions Month SM
October Mission Drive is just a few days away. It is one of two annual concentrated opportunities to spotlight, celebrate, and intentionally support the work of the Gospel among our International network. This is an exciting time to connect our local churches world-wide.

Due to lower church attendance during the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvest Partner Mission Giving and Project Giving is considerably down this year. To raise awareness, once again we are highlighting some of the exciting testimonies and updates concerning Gospel work and prayer opportunities ongoing in every region of the world where we have ministry in the October issue of the White Wing Messenger. We are also providing a master printing copy for bulletin inserts for the local church, available in the languages of English, Spanish, and French. Be on the lookout for a digital greeting designed for second Sunday mission’s emphasis at your local church in English and in Spanish.

We are grateful to partner with local churches and individual donors and thankful to express our gratitude for prayer and giving to Missions, and to remind you that 100% of your Mission Offerings go directly to the mission field.

With the multiple challenges emerging today through disasters, afflictions, epidemics, raging violence, etc., many have suggested that we are living through a season on earth perhaps never experienced before. I have considered those reflections from others and settled into a clarity of purposeful peace. That clarity implores me by the compelling fire of the Holy Spirit that His call remains to speak the Gospel of Christ to the ends of the earth.

The October Mission Drive is designed to motivate us to action to hear, accept, and become a participant in fulfilling the purpose of God. The moving of the Holy Spirit continues to reveal the heart of God on display, as the people of the earth need a Savior. His is a clear and compelling call.

-Dr. Cathy Payne, Global Missions Ministries Coordinator
