"Faith Promise Commitment Sunday Life Commitment Sunday"As a climax to our Mission Emphasis Month, we were treated to a specialmessage from Dr. Miriam Adeney, Associate Professor at Seattle PacificUniversity. Dr. Adeneys message combined the Bible story of Danielwith anecdotes from her personal missionary experiences and successesin sharing the gospel.Her stories were inspiring, and in some cases tragic, but all emphasizedthe importance of the singular message that "His kingdom knows no endand will never be destroyed". She encouraged us to "join the party" andshare our faith with the world.Following Dr. Adeneys message, Pastor Rick asked all members ofWCUMC to make a Faith Promise Commitment and a LifeCommitment. The purpose of the Faith Promise Commitment is to allowour Global Outreach (GO) Team to plan and administer financial supportto the mission efforts of WCUMC.The Faith Promise Commitment is a faith agreement between God andyou. No one is asked to provide their name, but simply to give us anamount that we can use for planning purposes. The Faith Promiseshould be over and above any financial support you give for basicoperations and staff salaries. Please consider these Commitmentscarefully, and stop by the church when you can to complete the formsshown below.
