This past Sunday we took a special offering for the Global Missions Team to help fund their ministry. If you missed the special offering, you can still prayerfully give this Sunday by writing "GMT" or "Global Missions Team" in the memo line of your check or by bringing an envelope and writing the same on the outside of the envelope before dropping it into the offering plate.
The GMT cannot accomplish its work without your help. We are seeking to raise $34,500 to accomplish many things this year. Here is a breakdown of what your money will go to this year if you give to this Missions Fund above your Tithe:
- $9,500: Send 17 Redeemer congregants on various short-term missions trips, including at least two people to specifically visit potential new GMT global partners
- $8.500: Sponsor a Global Art Exchange in partnership with the Harrison Center for the Arts in October featuring partner Stefan Eicher
- $1,000: Missions Weekend expenses
- $3,500: Provide tangible care for our partners
- $3,000: Develop global missions culture at Redeemer and help launch new missionaries into the field from the Redeemer congregation
- $2,000: Send Redeemer representatives to visit the Jesches in Guadalajara to explore this as a potential Redeemer short-term trip site
- $3,000 Increase our ability to provide partner care above the baseline level listed above. (This includes items such as helping to provide for tangible physical needs that arise like medical expenses.)
- $2,000: Provide partner care to Hinkles once in Australia (Help provide ongoing mentoring, possibly send someone to visit them in their first year, etc.)
- $2,000: Send an intern exploring a call to ministry to London to work with the Hatches
