Tim Vigus on Cary MS Mission Trip

Recently, New Church Memphis decided to minister to Cary Christian Center in Cary, MS, on an annual basis. The center is located in the poorest county in the United States! What an opportunity for the NCM mission team to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ!!!!
Along with our children’s department director, our missions drama team presented our VBS theme “JC Dragon Academy” an original production, to some 100 children! They were overwhelmed with an out pouring of love with Bible stories, games and crafts. Also, lots of picture taking, hair braiding, dancing and singing. Our team filled their hearts with the love of Jesus Christ in so many ways.
Our team needs time too! We come together and talk, laugh, play games and sing. One of our own brings a devotional from the Word with great worship time from members of our very own NCM praise band. What a treat! Let’s not forget food…NCM has the best cooks around. They get up early and go to bed late making sure we eat like champs!!! Three times a day, no less. Dieting is not on this menu!! LOL!!
Missions is very important to New Church Memphis. Jesus taught us to GO, TEACH AND DISCIPLE. We do this in every aspect just as Jesus taught. Acts 1:8 says…”But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere…in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.” Where? Cary, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee, USA and internationally.
People ask “Why do we have to go across the world when we have plenty to do in our own country?”
The answer is simple…WE ARE COMMANDED TO!
