The past few weeks we have been focusing on an opportunity to bring the Gospel and tangible care to a village in Africa. It will be in the country of Chad and Dan Venberg [Mission Mobilizer] will be revealing our village to us this Sunday in our worship service. We will be “Connecting Lives in Grace and Truth” with this group of people thousands of miles away. This connection will grow over the upcoming years. We want to grow in our support and care of this village as it is brought into contact with their Savior Jesus Christ.
Our “Overflowing Hope” theme comes from Romans 15:13 where Paul says,
We believe God is calling some of our overflow to reach across the ocean to a place that has never had the Gospel proclaimed. We are doing this because Oak Hill wants to grow in our “Going Value.” This value is based on the fact that we want to reach beyond the walls of our church building. We actively want to commit our lives to bring our hope to the world.
With that in mind, we had an opportunity over the last few weeks to raise $3000 which would be matched through a special gift. This would mean we could give a check for $6000 to Dan Venberg to begin our connection to “our village” in Chad. As is so often the case – you stepped up and delivered. I am excited to tell you about it right now but instead I invite you to come on Sunday and learn more from Dan as well as hear about our Overflowing Hope Expansion fund.
GOING with You,
Pastor Nick Mundis
