Our congregation has long supported efforts to share God’s word with people seeking their creator. For many years we have supported the efforts of EASTERN EUROPEAN MISSIONS with a yearly contribution of support. Each year as EEM seeks to fundraise to support their efforts, we have taken an opportunity to increase awareness of this work and to give the congregation opportunity to individually support prayerfully and if desired by additional financial contributions. On Sunday, September 16th, a special collection will be taken for EEM. Contributions should be earmarked “EEM”. Prayerfully consider your support.
For the elders, Ken D
EEMFOR FREEDOM (Galatians 5:1) Jesus came to set the captives of this world free (Luke 4:18), and those He has redeemed have been charged to join Him in that mission (Matt. 28:19). God continues to open doors and provide opportunities to join him on His mission as we print and distribute Bibles in 30 countries in over 20 languages. We invite you and your church to join our MDS campaign to share God’s Word and His liberating power!
After the fall of the Soviet Union and the lifting of the Iron Curtain, Eastern Europeans jubilantly celebrated the political freedom they had long been denied. But few have realized the true freedom that comes from knowing God’s Word. Since 1961 EEM has been delivering the Bible and this year we continue to have an opportunity to share true freedom only experienced through knowing Jesus.
Thank you for your support as we begin our 2018 Million Dollar Sunday (MDS) annual fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $2.4 Million. Our Million Dollar Sunday campaign provides funding for Bibles and Bible-based materials, free to all. Your financial partnership in this campaign will transform lives as freedom in Christ and His love is proclaimed! Donation of $5 provides individual biblical book or bible and $1000 provides an entire school with biblical materials. Tens of thousands of biblical books and Bibles are planned to be delivered to Poland, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Serbia. For Freedom, Give God’s Word!
