Today Christians around the world affirm what God has revealed about His true nature. God exists and works as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This confirms and models the life of Divine Fellowship. May you sense God in His full and perfect nature as you worship today.

Global Partners is the mission agency of the Wesleyan Church around the world. Its Director, Dennis Jackson, visited our congregation in 2013. He now writes with a missions update…
Dear Milliken Church,
Thank you so much for your continued partnership during these crucial days. Many friends like you have expressed their appreciation for our updates and prayer requests. I have cherished these too. We wanted to let you know that our collective giving for the global Covid-19 response fund has now reached $291,000! I’ve never seen the global Church stand so strongly together. The need has been greater than anticipated – but the giving has been greater as well. Praise God!
Back in March our District Global Partners Directors asked us to do a better job of communicating the overall strategy of our organization. Many are unaware of our “Five Phase” approach to mission. During the next year, our team is going to share this Five Phrase strategy more clearly.
(a) a verbal update on our global Covid-19 response,
(b) a quick overview of our Five Phase Strategy for Missions, and
(c) personal sharing by three of our missionaries about how they “do” Phrase One on the field! This video then closes with 10 minutes of our missionaries praying. Let me encourage you to watch it. It could increase your heart for missions!
Thank you, again, for all you do in partnership with us for the Kingdom.
– Dennis Jackson
