GO! Weekend, Spring 2018

Repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in Jesus’ name to all nations (Luke 24:47).

Our mission at Stone Hill is to make dedicated followers of Jesus Christ in Princeton, the Northeast, and the whole world. The mission is founded on God’s plan for the ages—a mission He so graciously revealed to us at many points in His Scripture, including the Risen Jesus’ words to His followers which I’ve quoted above.

Global Outreach (GO) is central to God’s plan for the world, His plan for His Church, His plan for you and me. With that in mind, Peter Evans, our GO elder, invites you to participate in the events of our Spring GO! Weekend, this Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

“The God we serve is a God on mission. This mission is to redeem and restore a lost and broken people. To accomplish this, God in his great love sent his Son, Jesus, into the world “to set the oppressed free” and “to seek and to save the lost” (Lk. 4:18, 19:10). Jesus then sent out his people to continue this task. As Christ’s church, it is our privilege to participate in God's redeeming activities. Stone Hill Church has a proud heritage of being involved in God’s mission in the world. And with that heritage comes the responsibility to stay aware of what God is doing on the global scene. So come to the GO Weekend and hear from ‘RB’ about The Gospel and Rescue Ministry. Discover how the gospel is going forth in South Asia to rescue, redeem, and restore those who are vulnerable to exploitation.”

The Conference begins at 6:00 PM on Saturday with an international dinner. Come dressed in clothing that reflects your country or people of origin. And bring a dish of your favorite food to feed six. If that food is international, all the better! After a splendid meal and some rich fellowship, RB will present a vision for what the Lord is doing through rescue ministry in Asia.

On Sunday morning, RB will open up God’s Word and provide us with truth, power, and direction concerning our role in God’s global outreach. To Him be the glory from all peoples. Amen!
