Series Great Commission Sunday
Great Commission (GC) Sunday is a celebration of what God is doing through the worldwide work of The Alliance. The practice of giving sacrificially to build Christ’s Kingdom—in times of abundance and of scarcity—has been an Alliance distinctive from the very beginning. GC Sunday is an opportunity for the U.S. Alliance family to express its commitment to pushing back the darkness in the remaining unreached parts of our world.

“You, Lord, keep my lamp burning. My God turns my darkness into light.” The light of the Father shines upon us. And we, as Christ followers, enjoy the light of His presence. The world is a place of pain and despair. But Jesus illuminates the dark areas of our lives, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. Through Him, we go and make disciples of all nations, pointing lost people to the One who gives eternal life. Your gift to the Great Commission Sunday offering will help enlighten the lives of lost, suffering and displaced people with the light of Jesus Christ—the only One who can turn their darkness into light. www.cmalliance.org/gcsunday
