You have found the website of the Missionary Church in Freeman, SD. Thanks for visiting.
We have had the joy of serving in Freeman, and the surrounding community, for over 50
years. In fact, in Sept. of 2019, we celebrated our 50th anniversary. For more go to the
'celebrating 50 years' page, or click right here
Here at the Missionary Church we celebrate the love of God and new life in Christ through worship and praise; we cultivate personal growth in Jesus Christ through preaching, teaching, and study; we care about one another in Jesus Christ through demonstrations of genuine concern and sharing of ourselves with one another; we
communicate Jesus Christ to the world through one on one relationships, community outreach ministries, and world missions.
This is an exciting place to be. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, whether early on in investigating God, a long time follower of Jesus, or anywhere in between we would love to have you be a part of our church family!
OCTOBER PRAYER FOCUS
Disciples are people who reflect the character and priority of Jesus. They pursue an intimate relationship with the Father, seek to be holy people, reflect dependence on the Father, care deeply for lost people, are committed to leading others to life as disciples of Jesus, and seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a hurting world.
Pastors are disciples who have been called to equip the body of Christ for works of ministry. That calling involves finding the best ways to help believers live as disciples of Jesus and equip them to make disciples of others. While all of us are called to live as disciples and therefore make disciples, pastors are called to continually clarify what it means to live as a disciple and to challenge those who are struggling in their faith.
Leading the body to live as disciples of Jesus in a rapidly changing culture can be overwhelming. As the culture presses in on the church and demands to be noticed and even embraced, pastors often face a dilemma. If they stand on the Scriptures to confront cultural changes, they may very well lose people from the church. If they bow to the culture, they violate the Word of God and then struggle with their own faith.
Pastors have always needed prayer support. There is an enemy bent on destroying the Church, and he loves to attack pastors with feelings of doubt, insecurity, failure, and hopelessness. While the general population could say they experience those same feelings, pastors often feel the doubts, insecurities, and failures of those in the congregation and even in the community. It is amazing the weight that is lifted when a pastor has assurance that there are those who are lifting him to the Lord.
October is known as “Pastor Appreciation Month.” Pray for your pastor(s). Remind them you are praying for them. Pray for their families. Pray the Lord will encourage them and lead them so that they can give leadership to the body of Christ.
