Involve Your Sunday School in Missions this Lenten Season!

ST AUGUSTINE, FL --- Save the date - the Standing Conference of the Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA) has designated February 14, 2010, as Mission Sunday! As we prepare to begin Great and Holy Lent, all Orthodox Christians have the opportunity to learn about and become involved in the work of missions through the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) Coin Box & Lesson Plan Program. Each household receiving a Coin Box can prayerfully fill it with offerings during the Lenten season; the funds collected will contribute to the work of making disciples of all nations. The 2010 OCMC Lesson Plans can be used on Mission Sunday or throughout the Lenten and Paschal seasons, according to the needs of your parish. We pray that this program will educate and inspire the children and youth of your parish about the work of making disciples; and that it will plant a love for missions in the hearts of our Church's f uture missionaries, priests, supporters, and leaders.

 To order your 2010 OCMC Coin Boxes and Lesson Plans, use the attached form, visit, or contact OCMC at 1-877-GO-FORTH or before January 29 to ensure a February 10 delivery!
