The 2019 New England Mission Emphasis (formerly Beulah Peoples Offering) focuses on five specific needs. If funded, these projects will impact live throughout New England. If not, the needs will go unmet.
Please read below to learn more, then join us in praying and giving. 100% of your gift will support these five projects!
You can give through your church or make a donation online using the secure link below.
Inner-city Discipleship House
The Daniel House is a ministry of Faith Community Church, a church plant in inner-city Providence, RI. The triple-decker is owned by the church and provides a stable environment for women coming out of chaotic circumstances to grow in their faith through a two-year discipleship program. Gifts to this year’s New England Mission Emphasis will help repair the roof of the Daniel House.
Second Generation Service
Vida Abundante Baptist Church is a Portuguese-speaking church in Saugus, MA, made up of Brazilian immigrants. Over the years the church has seen many second-generation immigrants become disconnected from their childhood faith because they feel more comfortable speaking English. Gifts to this year’s New England Mission Emphasis will help Vida Abundante purchase ministry tools for an English service.
Youth Discipleship Weekend
Rural churches in Vermont villages rarely have many youth. In the absence of an active youth group, Vermont teens can feel alone in their faith. A group of parents and youth leaders are organizing state-wide events to help Vermont teens meet and connect with other Christians. Gifts to this year’s New England Mission Emphasis will help pay for a Vermont-wide Disciple Now weekend for youth.
Disaster Response Trailer
Disaster Relief New England serves victims facing some of the most difficult circumstances of their lives. By outfitting an empty trailer that they already own, volunteers can serve more victims whose homes are uninhabitable, as well as help local churches in need of basic repairs. Gifts to this year’s New England Mission Emphasis will help purchase necessary tools and equipment for the Disaster Relief trailer.
Pastor Emergency Fund
It is often difficult for pastors and missionaries living on a ministry salary to save enough money to cover expenses in an emergency situation. Gifts to this year’s New England Mission Emphasis will support an emergency fund that helps New England pastors, ministers and missionaries facing unexpected urgent needs.
The five projects described above currently have no other source of funding. Your gift is vital to helping these projects happen! Give through your church or online using the secure link below.
Pray for God to transform lives in inner cities through local churches. Pray for God to help the women who live at the Daniel House as they grow in their walks with Him.
Pray for second generation immigrants who become disconnected from their childhood faith because they don’t feel comfortable with their parents’ native language. Pray that young people at Vida Abundante will understand and respond to the Gospel.
Pray that God will encourage New England teens who don’t have Christian friends. Pray for Vermont youth to learn and grow as a result of state-wide gatherings — and for non-Christian teens to come and hear the Gospel!
Pray for disaster victims who are dealing with disrupted lives and spiritual questions. Pray that Disaster Relief volunteers will be the hands and feet of Jesus, and that they can point people to Christ.
Pray that Christians will both lift up and financial support leaders in need. Pray that God will give pastors and missionaries emotional and spiritual strength and that He will be glorified, even in emergency situations.
