Global Mission Sunday
Today, we focused on Global Missions and our connection to the Christian & Missionary Alliance. The audio link is our Global Missions Team Leader, Tauni Strawn talking about the international workers that Garland Church supports.
We watched an an Alliance video with "Powerful and compelling scripture with imagery from around the world remind Alliance people of our Great Commission call to GO and take the gospel to all nations. Produced in 2012."
In lieu of a sermon, we watched the Alliance video with Dr. Timothy Crouch, VP of International Ministries. He spoke about "Peculiar People" and how the verses in 1 Peter 2:4-12 address Jewish believers who are now scattered around the Roman empire as “sojourners and exiles.”
