A Message From Marty Dupree, DOM
Are You a Disciple Maker?
Are You a "Great Commission" Church?
Have you ever really been discipled? – one on one, life on life by another person who was pouring their life into your life and helping you to grow in spiritual maturity so that you in turn can pour your life into someone else and then multiply that effort?

Mission Projects

March Mission Emphasis: We will be honoring our senior people that are in care facilities and rehabilitation centers by providing cheery notes, Easter cards, and Thinking of You cards. Please sign your church’s name and we will deliver to the sites. Please have these to the LRBA office by March 30 so they can be delivered by Easter.
 
April Mission Emphasis: Please encourage participation in The Annie Armstrong Mission Offering to support our US and Canadian Missionaries. 100% of this offering goes directly to the missionary field.

Thank you for answering God's call to serve!
 ~Becky Putnam, LRBA Missions Involvement Consultant
