Mission Encounter Courses for 2022
God's desire is for us to build communities of hope and joy.
Please join us virtually for Mission Encounter as we reflect on a broader vision of the community Jesus is calling us to be. This year as we study Luke 13, we are in the midst of a devastating pandemic, a divisive political climate, unaddressed systemic racism, ecological crises, and economic turmoil.
We can turn to the stories of Jesus that have anchored Christian communities for two millennia. Our newly designed Mission Encounter is for everyone and will focus on Luke 13. It is possible for us to minister to the needs of our communities in various ways as Jesus did.
우리를 향한 하나님의 열망은 우리를 소망과 기쁨의 공동체로 부르십니다.
온라인 Mission Encounter을 통해 예수님께서 우리를 부르신 공동체의 보다 넓은 비전을 함께 참여하십시오. 이 시대에 우리가 겪고 있는 절망적인 전염병, 분열된 정치, 공론화되지 않은 시스템화된 인종차별, 생태계의 위기 그리고 경제적 불안을 누가복음 13장을 토대로 공부하면서 하나님께서 주시는 지혜와 방향성을 다시금 찾고자 합니다. 또한, 지난 2천년 역사의 기독교 공동체의 토대를 세운 예수님의 생애와 사역을 돌아보면서, 사랑의 손길이 필요한 우리의 지역사회를 위해 실제적으로 움직이며 일할 것입니다. 새롭게 구성된 Mission Encounter는 예수님의 사랑을 소망하는 모든 이들을 향해 열려
