“Seeking His Kingdom Together” is our theme for Missions Emphasis Week (November 4–12). Jesus commanded his disciples: “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.” (Matthew 6:33–34). Though his kingdom may not always be obvious today, one day it will be visible, global, and perfect.

All of us can play a role in this kingdom. Our goal for this year’s Missions Emphasis Week is to have you examine what God’s Word says about his kingdom, to enjoy a community meal with others, and to lift up your hands in prayer and praise.

So, we invite you this week to chat with our visiting missionaries, to learn about God’s work overseas in places like Asia and the Middle East, to serve the city on Love Boston Day, and to pray for his kingdom to come. We are one body. We have one King. We belong together to one kingdom. Jesus urged his disciples to pray for it (Matthew 6:10), to preach it (Matthew 10:7), to persuade others of it (Acts 19:8), to work for it (Colossians 4:11), and to suffer for it (2 Thessalonians 1:5). Let’s seek his kingdom together!
