Moving toward a problem, challenge, need, or broken thing in our path in Jesus' name.
Integral Missions isn't a program, it's a lifestyle. It's how we, Severn Runners, are committed to living out our time here on this earth. How can you get involved in Integral Missions? Start out by noticing the people God has put in your life. Who are they? What do they need? Next notice what you have in your hands...both literally and metaphorically. How can you answer a need they have with the resources you have available? Remember that it's all about relationship! Begin loving the people in your path well. They will see and hear Jesus through you!
On October 27, the Church at Severn Run will launch an Integral Mission Expression called M:25, based on Matthew 25:40. This will be the beginning of reaching our friends in need in and around our community with basic necessities. Our first outreach will be geared toward helping the homeless get ready for the harsh winter months ahead. We are currently collecting supplies to create care bags that will be distributed during the event. We will collect these items over the next few weeks, and on Thursday October 25, from 6-8 pm we will spend time packing, prepping, and praying over the bags and who they will reach in order to prepare for the event.
On Saturday October 27, we will meet at Severn Run for a brief time of fellowship and instruction, and then head out to several communities throughout the area in order to distribute the donations and connect with our friends.
We are collecting: thermal blankets, ponchos, winter gloves and hats, hand warmers, pop top meals, shelf stable foods, bottled water, wet ones/water wipes/baby wipes, drawstring backpacks, and pocket devotionals. Turn them in to the mission center in the atrium. Click here for the Amazon Wishlist.
Partner Ministry Highlight:
Partner Ministry: The Transformation Center
The Transformation Center is one of our partners who specializes in wholistic ministry. They aim to focus on five critical areas of each individual life: the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and social needs.
We have partnered with our friends at The Transformation Center to provide the Lilies Place pantry with 500 pasta items every month. Any pasta item counts, but the most helpful items are:
- Sauces with meat included
- Pasta meals in a can (ie - Chef Boyardee, Spaghetti-Os, etc)
Have you had the best Saucy Sunday intentions and still forget your sauce? Well try out this saucy life-hack! Set up a reoccurring online order of sauce to ship straight to Severn Run at the beginning of each month. Check out our suggested links for an easy start:
Set it to ship to The Church at Severn Run, 8187 Telegraph Road, Severn, MD 21144!
If you buy your items at the store, you can drop your items at the Missions Area in the Atrium the first Sunday of each month. If you have questions, contact Vicki Delair.
