When people hear the word "missions," they usually think of big elaborate mission trips to third world countries, but what people don't realize is that missions can take place exactly where we are. In Athens, 62.5% of the population (around 73,000) is completely unchurched. This number has grown by over 20,000 since 2000 and is continuing to grow. That is 73,000 broken people who are in desperate need of a savior. There is a great need for us as believers to reach out to these people. There are multiple ways we can be on mission right where we are. Our BCM will be hosting many different outreach events that you can be a part of this year, but don't wait on us! Be a light wherever you are!
"For 'everyone who calls on the name on the Lord will be saved.'" How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!'"
Stay tuned for dates and details of local missions events!
