Missions Work Week
One of the highlights of our year is our Missions Work Week. This a week set aside in June, to come together for no other reason than to assemble the Word of God, many times in different languages.
As much as we love supporting missionaries, the reality is, a missionary needs to be able to take the Bible with him to the field. Over the last ten years Faith Baptist Church has paid for, assembled, and shipped nearly 1,000,000 scriptures to mission fields around the world.
The people of the church work together to raise the funds for each project, and then in June we work together to assemble, package, pray over, and send off hundreds of thousands of scriptures to people who may have never heard the name Jesus before.
We are able to do this by partnering with Bible printing ministries like Bearing Precious Seed in Milford Ohio, Bible Missionary Literature Foundation in Shelby Tennessee, and Local Church Bible Publishers in Lansing Michigan. This is by far the most rewarding week of the year for our church. We get to spend 6 days sitting around tables fellowshipping with one another as we handle the very Word of God. We begin each morning at 8 AM with coffee, doughnuts, and prayer. Then, we jump into the work, throughout the day men, women, and children of all ages are coming and going (as their schedule allows) partaking in the work.
By the end of the week, there are hundreds of boxes of finished scriptures sitting around the platform and auditorium, ready to be prayed over and sent off on Sunday. You simply MUST come to see it with your own eyes to understand the blessing and excitement this week of work produces in our lives!
Please pray for us as we prepare for our biggest project yet, 250,000 scriptures in 6 days!!!!
The dates for this years Missions Work Week are June 15th 23rd 2019.
See you there!
