Sharing hope, transforming lives through generosity
Church of the Nazarene
The Easter Offering for World Evangelism helps fund the Church of the Nazarene’s ministry network as it mobilizes thousands of people to share Christ’s transformational love each day. Every dollar helps spread the message of scriptural holiness across the street and around the globe.
Pan de Vida (Bread of Life) Church of the Nazarene in Panama City, Panama, is using soccer and cultural activities to provide wholesome recreation alternatives for the youth in their community. The church leaders hope that their work spreads from the youth into the broader community.
When you give to World Evangelism, you empower ministries like that of Pan de Vida in Panama City and many more around the world, encouraging active engagement in fulfilling the Great Commission.
By giving to World Evangelism, you are actively advancing the Church of the Nazarene’s ministries around the world. Your participation through prayer and giving makes it possible for the church to fulfill God’s call to make Christlike disciples of all nations.
Promotional materials for this year’s offering are now available on the offering website at nazarene.org/generosity.
THE GONZALEZ FAMILY . . .
Camilo, Sara, Landon, Kyle & Adriana, members of the Indy District (Shelbyville First), have accepted a new Global Missions assignment and have transferred from the Africa Region to the Eurasia Region to serve in Church Development in the country of Luxembourg! As you most likely know, a new assignment and move to a new country of service will require updated documents and visas. They are currently stateside in this process.
We ask that you all continue praying for us during these next steps for arrival to our new country of service, especially as we move through the different requirements for visas and entry into Luxembourg. We look forward to sharing more with you about our new assignment. Also, with this change of regions, our email addresses have changed. Our updated emails are sgonzalez@eurasiaregion.
Continue praying for the Gonzalez Family as they prepare for this new transition and become the first Nazarene missionaries in the newest world area (164th) for the Church of the Nazarene.

A SEASON OF HOPE
The Apostle Paul wrote, “May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Will you share this hope that we have in Jesus Christ with others? During this season when many feel hopeless, share the eternal hope of salvation. Reach out to your neighbors – next door, down the street, across town and across the world. Continue to support the World Evangelism Fund through faithful and generous giving. https://www.nazarene.org/give
