Spotlight on Missions: Mission Dignity

In the Bible, God shows great compassion for the poor and needy. And because God cares, we should care too. For the past seven-and-a-half years, I have seen Eastmont step up in obedience to provide for those in need. We have hosted food distributions, loved on mothers and children at the Friendship Mission, partnered with First Choice Women’s Medical Center, and made sleeping mats for the homeless, among many other things.I am writing you to present another opportunity for us to care for those in need.

Since 1918, GuideStoneFinancial Resources has been on a “Mission” to provide “Dignity” to retired Southern Baptist ministers, workers, and their widows. These are men and women who served God’s people faithfully that now find themselves struggling to provide for their basic needs. When we consider the fact that over 66% of SouthernBaptist churches have fewer than 75 in attendance, it is clear that many of our pastors serve dutifully even though their retirement is uncertain.

We can do something about that. Last year almost 2,000 individuals and couples received help through Mission Dignity. Eastmont can be part of increasing that number in the years ahead. On Sunday, October 10, we will begin receiving donations for Mission Dignity. Ask God how you and your family can help. Let us continue to show honor to those who labor in preaching and teaching (1 Tim. 5:17).
