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!
NOVEMBER PRAYER FOCUS
One of the challenges to living as disciples of Jesus around the globe is the threat of persecution. According to Voice of the Martyrs there are more than 309,000,000 Christians who suffer very high or severe levels of persecution. One in eight Christians worldwide faces persecution. The first request of persecuted believers is always, “Pray for us!”
November 6 is INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH. One day set aside to pray is a great gesture, but these brothers and sisters need our ongoing prayers. In a few weeks many of us will gather with family to celebrate Thanksgiving. There will be lots of food and fellowship and no fear of having our gathering interrupted by hostile government agents or by terrorists or religious radicals.
While we are feasting, others will be fasting. While we meet openly, others will be in hiding. While we share stories and laugh together around the table, others will be weeping because of the loss of a loved one, the destruction of their crops or home, or the impending threats.
We should praise God for the grace that has allowed us to live in a free country. Praise Him for the blessings; but while you are praising Him for your bounty, breathe a prayer of intercession of those who will be without a meal or shelter and who do not know if they will live another day.
Paul wrote to Timothy that everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted (2 Timothy 3:12). For some it is the loss of a job or the loss of opportunity. For others it is being ostracized from family. Others experience beatings and even death simply for following Jesus. As churches around the world pray for the persecuted church on November 6, make a commitment to continue to intercede on behalf of these who suffer for their faith.
