The Kingdom Assignment

There is deep happiness when we are found faithful with what’s been entrusted to us; a burst of joy that surfaces when we’re given ever-increasing opportunities to contribute to a cause bigger than ourselves. That’s not to say the ‘moment’ of being called upon isn’t daunting. When we’re called to step up there is that moment when we gulp, “Me?"

The assignment

On Sunday, May 19th, people were asked to volunteer - to step forward not knowing what they were volunteering for. From all three services we had a total of 42 people. In some cases teenagers came up with their parent(s). These volunteers were asked to put out their hand and then given $100 from our “Branching Out to Serve Others Fund.” They were then given a book and the following guidelines:

1.  Please start by reading The Kingdom Assignment by Denny and Leesa Bellesi.

2. You get to choose the ministry/organization which receives the proceeds.

  • The organization must be within Mesa County and serve the needs of people.
  • You are not limited to those we currently support.

3. You can invite others – inside and outside the church – to join you.

4. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Debe Colby or Tom Hansen.

5. You have until August 31 to make this gift grow, give it away and report back.

how to participate

You may join them, pray for them, help them with their assignment . . . OR DO IT YOURSELF WITH YOUR OWN $100 – which actually belongs to God anyways.

We’ll have extra copies of the book or you can find a used copy online for $3-5.

The Kingdom Assignment will give us a chance to be the “good and faithful servants” . . . the doublers and triplers of the treasure/talents given to us. The Kingdom Assignment is the same assignment for everyone yet in some ways unique as each person is uniquely put together with passions, experiences, networks of relationships, influence, creativity, etc.

That’s OUR assignment. Our Kingdom Assignment. May our hearts skip a beat . . . and keep on beating as we are “Rooted in Jesus, Growing in His Love and Branching Out to Serve Others.” All glory be to the King!
