The Bishop's PARTNERS IN MISSION

The Bishop PARTNERS IN MISSION
The Bishop's Partners in Mission, of the Susquehanna Conference UMC, provides an opportunity to make a difference in our community, nation, and worldwide.

By being Bishop’s Partners in Mission (2017-2018), we:
• Enable Mission Central to continue to provide resources, materials, and education to churches to be active in missions and touch lives ...
• Revive hope in people struck by natural disasters by providing practical assistance ...
• Save lives and restore hope to people who are threatened by deadly disease ...

“Thank you for your partnership in mission. Together we make a difference to countless people in need. Being alive in Christ together transforms us into disciples who are positively impacting our world.”
— Bishop Jeremiah J. Park


Rev. Dr. Dilip Abayasekara talks about the Bishop's Partners in Mission

The "Partnering in Mission" video series continues with the latest video message on the BPIM page in the Conference website (tinyurl.com/BishopsPIM) and on the BPIM Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BishopsPIM). 



 Dear BPIM Ambassadors and Friends,

I'm forwarding this QuikLINK information given in the June Partnering in Mission, titled Ideas for Your Vacation Bible School that will make it Missional and save Lives. In this video I share some ideas for a Vacation Bible School (VBS) to connect to Imagine No Malaria (INM). Please share this information in your church who organizes the VBS. Also, please make yourself familiar with the other videos posted in the BPIM web page at http://tinyurl.com/BishopsPIM 

Also, our newest BPIM Ambassador, Cathy Wilcox (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre District) sent me the link below that has detailed information for daily activities at a VBS to connect to INM.   

As a result of the exposure to Bishop's Partners in Mission (BPIM) at the Annual Conference, we had a number of people volunteer to be active in fund raising in their churches. Very soon I expect to introduce to you new BPIM Ambassadors. 

Thank you for your commitment and faithfulness.

Blessings,
Dilip
