Global Awareness Week 2019

 
Being a Christ follower where you live means different things to believers around the world. Some live in actively hostile political and religious climates. Others experience social pressure from family and relatives for their faith. Wherever we live, it’s not easy to live lives of grace when we are under pressure.
 
Join us this year for Global Awareness Week, November 1-6. Our conference will feature 18 mission partners and 12 different ministries serving in Greater Boston and 8 nations. Our partners will help us understand better what “grace under pressure” means for them and their ministries. As Matthew wrote, “But the one who remains strong in the faith will be saved. This good news of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world. It will be a witness to all nations.” (Matthew 24:13-14a)

Special Offering

Response to the Crisis at the border

All of us wish the problems of immigration and migration could be solved. We have the opportunity to join our Grace Chapel partner, World Relief, to obey God’s call to care for the sojourner and alien. World Relief provides services, support and hope to refugees and asylum seekers who are fleeing persecution, poverty, disease and war. Through our GAW offering and out of the grace and mercy we have received, we can extend grace, mercy and thoughtful support that can remind suffering people of God’s love for them.

“I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.”

Mathew 25:35, The Message

 Our Global Awareness Week 2019 Offering will help meet three urgent needs:

1. As asylum seekers wait for their cases to be heard before a U.S. judge, local churches and organizations south of the border help provide for basic needs like safety, housing and food. In response to the leadership of local Mexican church pastors, we bring needed resources and guidance.

2. Trained Christian legal professionals provide safe, trustworthy legal guidance and prayer. As cases are evaluated and validated, asylum seekers learn how to take concrete legal steps which can lead toward family reunification, due process of law, adjustments of status, and when possible, a legal pathway to American citizenship.

3. Local churches north of the border can be equipped to provide prayer, community and practical guidance, as asylum recipients take first steps toward a new future. A local church can become a welcoming community where newcomers can receive case management, employment services, financial literacy…and the love of Christ.
