Reference Material

Booklet Song:

When Jesus was trav’ling among us / He freely extended His grace. / He still offers hope and forgiveness: / “I want to rekindle your faith.” / He sent forth His spirit in us to abide / And gave us the duty to feed and to guide: / “Go, therefore, and teach in each nation and place / My word of salvation and grace. (SHZ 184 v.2)

Bible Text:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.(Matthew 28:19,20)
