Dear fellow Sojourners,
As you may have noticed, there is a renewed energy in our church community for reaching people ready to be redeemed. I like that title as it speaks of such hope and victory! I know that if we are willing, there are many people in our communities ready to be redeemed by Jesus Christ! Below I’ve listed some possibilities.
First, my prayer is that most people would come to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ through our natural relationships. These are people we naturally come into contact with in our daily lives. We’ve already established a friendly relationship and who better to share the gospel with them than us! Let us open our eyes to the harvest.
Second, we will be taking a special collection each week for three more weeks. These funds will be used directly for evangelistic purposes in order to help people begin their relationship with Jesus Christ (B2). We have $56 thus far from last week. Next, we are asking you to come up with some unique ideas for sharing Jesus with others. Think out of the box! We will use these funds to help support the different ministry ideas that spring up over the next month.
Third, soon after I return I will be creating a B2 ministry team. The B2 team will create meaningful ways of helping people begin their walk with Jesus in our upcoming musical production, The Music Man (show details forthcoming). This may come through a variety of ways and opportunities. I am very excited about this team!! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! I am looking at having our first meeting on Tuesday, February 21st at 7pm. This will be held either at my home or at the Bethel school campus where we will be having rehearsals.
If the Lord is stirring any of you in these areas please let me know by emailing me firstname.lastname@example.org (I’ll check email while I’m traveling), or touch base with me as soon as I return on February 11th. Actually, wait until the 12th due to jet lag (smile).
