Beautiful Feet

Most of us by now know “Beautiful Feet” is the theme phrase for our 2021 Missions Emphasis. Our theme comes from Isaiah 52:7. We recently had our Missions Appreciation Dinner and the expressed commitment to world, national and local missions from within this congregation was exceptional. We had a guest missionary last weekend; he and his family are ministering in a sensitive region of Southern Eurasia and we want to help them stay in the field. Just another reason for you to be involved with our missions activities. We are always trying to expand our horizons as to new partnerships with people who are impacting “people groups” or nations we will never be able to touch. Our recent missionary is a perfect example. Some of the most important ways we partner are through prayer, we partner through observation/awareness, and last but not least we partner through financial participation. During the Missions Appreciation Dinner I distributed 2021 Missions Faith Promise cards. Here is what is printed on the back of the card: “What is a faith promise? This is a promise to God, not a pledge to the church, rather a promise to help support Hawthorne Assembly Missions efforts. Your faith promise amount is between you and God. No one will notify you or keep track of your progress toward your commitment.“ We have been using this faith promise card for six years now and if you ask anyone who has filled out a card, we have never contacted anyone to remind them of their faith promise. The reason we use this card is two-fold. First and foremost, the card stays with you to be used as a prayer reminder. Secondly, we take a photocopy of your card and use it only for budgetary information. With these faith promises, we have a starting point to know how and where we can stretch our faith over the next 12 months. Missions is one of the key foundations of this local fellowship and your pastor. As we think about our 3 keywords for this fellowship, GO, BE, DO, all of us should understand that “GO” speaks to our efforts to reach out into our world to fulfill what Jesus said in Acts 1:8 “...and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” Prayerfully consider joining our efforts through prayer, observance, and financial participation. The Faith Promise cards are on the table by the front entrance. One other great aspect of our Missions Faith Promise is the opportunity to adopt a missionary. Want to know more? Please talk to me or Paul W. who is our new missions coordinator for HAGMAT (Hawthorne Assembly of God Missions Advisory Team) concerning anything about missions. I’m also very excited to continue as the Section 1 representative for the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network missions board. Hopefully and prayerfully, in 2021, Hawthorne Assembly will have a couple of short-term missions trips available for many to participate in and to fulfill our theme of “Beautiful Feet!” “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7
