Invite a Friend to Sunday School

Witnesses to Me…in your own backyard

…and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem… (Acts 1:8).

Last week, I reminded you again of our thoughts and plans about reaching our Jerusalem, our own backyard, as we attempt to make disciples of all nations to the ends of the earth. I am excited about this journey. Right now we are praying; soon we will engage in a variety of ways.

  • Easter Egg Hunt – Saturday, March 28

  • Community Cookout and Gospel Music – Sunday evening, May 31
  • Vacation Bible School – beginning Sunday, June 7

Friends3
Today, I want to encourage you to engage in another way. I want to encourage you to invite a friend to join you in Sunday School for the month of March. The weather is going to change. The trees will be budding. The flowers will begin to bloom. It will be a great time to invite a friend to try something new.

Please start praying for your friend. Then, ask them to join you in Sunday School. Ask them to come back each week. Plan to make a difference in their life.Friends2

On our Pastor’s heart (2-15-15)

Witnesses to Me…in your own backyard

…and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem… (Acts 1:8).

Several weeks back, I mentioned that our Jerusalem, our own backyard, is a crucial part of us making disciples of all nations. I also mentioned that we have plans for reaching this backyard of ours. We have the prayer phase and the engage phase.

Prayer Phase

In the prayer phase, we asked you to find three places in our community where you can go once a week to pray. We asked that you look and see people who are lost and hurting. More than 78% of the local population is unchurched and probably lost. This is our Jerusalem. Pray for God to send out laborers into His harvest. Pray for Him to work in these lives: to restore marriages, to heal homes, and to save souls.

Engage Phase

Coming soon we will begin our engage phase. I am excited about the things our church is planning, preparing, and trusting God for this spring. Our plans to engage include:

  • Easter Egg Hunt – on Saturday, March 28, we hope to meet and love on families in our community through a children’s egg hunt. This will give us an opportunity to tell the story of Christ.
  • Healthcare Clinic & Outreach – on Saturday, May 23, we will partner with Wallace Mobile Healthcare to provide a Christian based healthcare clinic to the community at our church. The doctors will provide the services, and we will partner with them in sharing the love of Christ with hurting people.
  • Community Cookout and Gospel Music – on Sunday, May 31, we will follow-up the healthcare clinic with a cookout, with live music, and with a gospel presentation in our pavilion area.
  • Vacation Bible School – one week later, beginning Sunday, June 7, we will again engage the community through VBS.

Please keep praying for God to prepare hearts and to make His name famous among our neighbors here in the community.
