New Beginnings Church of God supports a variety of missions through the generous giving of our membership. In addition, members of our church embark on short terms missions trips once or more per year. Funding is critical for these missions efforts.
Missions funds that come in to the church are used 100% to support the various missions of the church. Missions funds are segregated from the operating fund and are allocated as follows:
20% - Legacy International – Senegal, Africa
20% - Run for the Son – CMA
15% - Teen Challenge – Augusta, Maine
10% - Israel
10% - Tommy & Poppi Smith
10% - YWEA
15% - Short Term Missions
If you are interested in supporting missions, you can place your offering in the weekly offering plate with “Missions” designated on the offering envelope. In addition, please feel free to see Pastor Alan to make a specific missions offering.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)
SHORT TERM MISSIONS
New Beginnings Church of God believes in supporting our members on domestic mission trips. As such, our short term missions fund is used to send people from our church on short mission trips to help other churches or people as needed. See Michael Morneau if you are interested in taking part in a future short term missions trip.

Legacy International: Chris and Kathy Javner
A recent email from the Javners:
Ever just need a break? Well, yesterday was one of those days for our family. We decided to be spontaneous and head to the "local" pool for the day. Christopher took off on his scooter. Katahdin went zooming away on his moped. Sahara and Cheik started for the garage to reserve our seats in the next vehicle destined for Kaolack. Chris and I finished securing the house and began our own trek to the garage.
Our route took us to the solitary tarred road still a few blocks from our destination. We were walking along greeting everyone who we passed and enjoying the "cooler" weather of the morning hour.
One of the men whom we greeted stopped and spoke some very encouraging words. He is one of the heads of the different quarters here in Keur Madiabel. He was dressed in his flowing fabric kaftan which spoke volumes of his position in the town. He wanted us to know that he has been hearing nothing but good things about us living in Keur Madiabel. He spoke of how Chris works very hard and how he has heard of his heart for the people here. He pronounced a blessing on our work and lives. We thanked him for his kind words and thanked God with this man for all that God is doing through our lives. He told us that he had been meaning to come to our house and tell us how thankful he is for all the good that he has been hearing about us.
We often wonder how our presence in the town is viewed. We are thankful that God gave us this glimpse yesterday. This man's encouragement was such a blessing.
Thank you all for allowing Jesus' name to be proclaimed here! May He continue to receive all the glory for any GOOD that is done through us. Only by His overwhelming love will His truth's be made known.
Many, many blessings in Jesus' name!!!
