Missions Sunday Fundraiser Update
Through your generosity, our Missions Fundraiser (Oct 22 - Nov 1) raised over $18,000, bringing our year to date (July 1 - Nov 3) Missions fund total to over $31,000. How awesome is our God!
If you missed the Missions Sunday service or want to see it again, you can watch it using this link: https://the-campus.ca/media/playlist/bathurst-livestream-recordings/missions-fundraiser-service
Please continue to support our amazing Missionaries and Missions organizations. We want to help these people spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the places where they have been called to minister, and our role as a church family is to help stand in the gap to make this possible.
Pray also that God would continue to bless not just our missionaries' financial needs, but also protect their safety, their health, and their personal and family relationships, as they spend time away from the comforts we enjoy here at home.

CAMPUS CHURCH MISSIONS
Missions continues to be an interesting and challenging ministry, all at the same time!
In the last year, we have taken on Global Disciples as well as Jonah and Hannah Hudson with Teach Beyond who will be teaching at a Christian school in the Czech Republic this fall. Global Disciples are in 58 countries. They teach and train those living in unreached villages to connect with their own people, and share the gospel of Christ. As a result, there are no cultural or language issues and their reports are astonishing! We also continue to uphold Teen Challenge, Avant (Larry and Marbi Janzen), and Youth Unlimited (Mel Kollar and Alison Chuck). Each missionary / ministry have been assigned to a home group for care and prayer. The Missions Committee meet monthly for a chat and a prayer time with each missionary or ministry. These are special times and help us to feel connected in our Lord’s work.
One of our mandates is to educate our congregation as to what is happening, what we are doing, etc. Each month we will have a Missions Moment during our Sunday service to update you on how things are going with a particular missionary or missions organization that we support.
One of the new initiatives we are working on is trying to answer the question of “How can we outreach into our communities?” Each member of the Missions team have been challenged to research a local outreach initiative and report back to the Committee next meeting. If you have a local outreach that you are passionate about feel free to contact me or any member of the Missions Committee. We are always open to new ideas!
I want to say a heartfelt “ Thank You” to each member of our congregation. You continue to support our work through your prayers and generous financial givings. We are so grateful!
And, to my awesome Missions Team: Klaus and Lenore, Les, Heather, Carolina, Tina, Alison. I so appreciate your passion for missions, your creative ideas, your honesty, and your sense of fun - not all of our meetings are boring! 😀
