In the concluding prayers of the Great Thanksgiving, the congregation of Lighthouse United Methodist Church is reminded that the Eucharist is more than solely remembering the salvific work of Jesus Christ. It also serves as an inspiration for the congregation of the Lighthouse Church to be sent to our local community and world in mission.
Central to this final project is how the celebration of the Eucharist at the Lighthouse Church inspires participation in missional endeavors locally and around the world. The congregation frequently celebrates the Eucharist and is highly invested in missional efforts regionally, nationally, and internationally. There are two areas of missional focus that are explored in this project. The first includes discovering how the liturgy of the Eucharist both inspires and builds upon a robust missional framework for regional and international mission partnerships. The second area of focus is the discovery of how the liturgy of the Eucharist inspires the congregation of the Lighthouse Church to be more missionally involved in our local community.
