2021 North American Division Sabbath School Mission Investment Projects
The Good Shepherd House, located in the Greater New York Conference, hopes to contribute to the fight of health equity among the surrounding communities in the county of Brooklyn. Having a Seventh-day Adventist-run free Medical and Dental Clinic would help bridge the gap in access to healthcare quality. Along with a food pantry program, a thrift store, and social services that we plan to implement, it will enable us to address some of the social determinants of health.
The Southern New England Conference is focusing the mission investment funds on aspects of community services involving collection, distribution and training. Currently, there is a need for space for the temporary storage of equipment needed to meet emergency needs. There is very little space for deployment mobilization of service assets (workers and equipment) to provide needed services during times of extremity.
The Nevada-Utah Conference is focusing on the Church building on the Kayenta Navajo Mission site in the Nevada-Utah Conference.
The Arizona Conference plans free clinics and multisite evangelism under the name: Diné Impact ‘22. The majority of the land area, population and Adventist membership of the Navajo Nation is within the territory of the Arizona Conference. Therefore, the Arizona Conference accepts the challenge of taking the lead in a united evangelistic thrust to reach the entire Navajo Nation. The purpose of this specific project is to reap a substantial harvest of souls in the late summer of 2022, by capitalizing on interest generated through radio and internet outreach to the entire Navajo Nation (across State and Conference lines) in partnership with Adventist World Radio and others, beginning in August 2020. A weekly Navajo-focused, locally produced radio broadcast will air across the Navajo territory on KTNN-AM, the 50,000-watt “voice of the Navajo Nation.” A website, currently under construction, will complement the weekly broadcast, and a Bible school will be established to follow up on interest generated.
A self-denial jar is a jar, box, or piggy bank that you put money in, that you would have spent on yourself or something that is unnecessary save it for a mission project.
- Instead of buying that snickers bar put the money in your self-denial jar.
- If you receive a gift you don’t need, return, or sell it and put the funds in your jar.
- Instead of going through the drive through for supper put the money in the jar and eat what you have at home.
- Dedicate a portion of all unexpected money to the mission.
- Skip the carwash for a month and put the money in the self-denial jar.
You get the idea! I bet you are thinking, “Will these few dollars actually amount to anything worthwhile?” and the answer is yes! One small church had a $1500 goal but in the end, they raised $4,203.63 for a young girl in the Philippines to have an operation and had money left to support the missionary! Read their story and how to make a successful campaign in your church here! https://missionspro.org/2017/04/09/04152017-300-growth/
