LIVING ON MISSION
At Christ Proclamation Church, we value the good news of the gospel and we value people's lives. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus calls and commands us to be making disciples of all the nations by going, baptizing, and teaching. That doesn't just take place across the globe in other nations but across the road with other members of your community. We also value partnering with local ministries into to engage our community is ways that are practical, encouraging, and life-transforming. Let me introduce you to some of those local ministries!
Christ Proclamation Church has been given the great opportunity and privilege to minister the gospel at Kimberly Hall South, a local Windsor nursing home, on the third Sunday of each month. We gather the folks together for a short gospel-centered service, which includes singing and sharing, followed by a related Bible Study, discussion, and time of fellowship. Most recently, the ministry interns have led the nursing home residents through a sermon series on the "I AM" statements in the Gospel of John. We would be delighted for you and your family to join us! If you have any questions about the Proclamation Nursing Home Ministry, please contact Brendan Coburn.
We're excited to link arms with Speak for the Unborn (S4U) as we join together with churches all around the country to bring the hope of the gospel to a population that is struggling, hurting and desperate enough to consider aborting their own babies. S4U’s “Voice for Life Training Series” equips churches to serve in a way that is winsome, gospel-centered, and compelled by love. The Executive Director for S4U conducted four training sessions with Proclamation via a live Zoom conference call. The recordings for each session are located here.
