Missions

Global missions is a high priority at Chapin Presbyterian Church. As obedient followers of Christ, we are engaged in both financial support of commissioned missionaries and annual mission trips by members of the congregation to these fields. Supported missionaries and their families regularly speak at our church when they are in the U.S. and each year we have several events to promote world missions to our congregation.

Faith Promise Giving

Faith Promise is a means of funding missions in the local church. It has been used for many years to help congregations increase their giving to God’s missionary work.
This Faith Promise is a commitment between an individual and God. It is a one year promise of a sum of money that an individual, in dependence upon God, intends to give to missions. It is not based on money that people have on hand. The aim is higher. People are urged to ask God what they should trust him for, the amount that He will enable them to give for missions during the coming year. Faith Promise cards will be distributed to each person or couple on Faith Promise Sunday. The individual or couple will prayerfully consider how much they are willing to trust the Lord to enable them to give to world missions over and above their tithes.

 

Compassion International Sunday, October 11, 2020

CPC members will have an opportunity to sponsor a child in the name of Jesus Christ and release them from a chain of poverty as well as share the Gospel with them. Information will be available on Sunday, October 11.
Compassion International is:
 
Christ-Centered – We believe that Jesus is the only one who can truly release a child from the hopelessness of poverty. As a ministry, we desire to follow Christ fully and introduce His love to every sponsored child in a relevant, culturally sensitive way.
This is an opportunity for you to make a difference!
 
Church-Based – Who knows a community and its children better than someone who actually lives there? That’s why we partner with more than 7,500 Christ-centered local churches around the world to teach, train, and mentor children.
This allows connection of one child with one sponsor. You can write and receive letters from your child and even visit; individual or whole family involvement!
 
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. —John 13:35 (ESV)
 
And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. —Luke 6:31 (ESV)
 
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. —James 1:27
