Envision if you will: Our church adding new members--each and every week. Baptisms--each and every week. Family members and the community coming to Christ--each and every week. The word of God being spread--each and every week. Shut-ins being visited--each and every week. Cards and letters being sent to those in need, and those who are wondering if they matter--each and every week. People receiving phone calls--each and every week. Imagine a caring, loving, energized body of believers that are on fire, by Divine Appointment, for Evangelism and Outreach. Well, imagine no longer!!
There is someone out there waiting for YOU--by "Divine Appointment", to reach out to them. Yes, I said "Divine Appointment". We are asking God to pave the way and set up by "Divine Appointment" all of the contacts that we will make as we move forward with Outreach and Evangelism. Nothing will be left to chance. God will have His Way and he's going to use US to fulfill his plan.
By volunteering to participate in the G.R.O.W. Program (God Rewards Our Work) just one night a month; we can have all of our imaginations come true! That's right, you heard me correctly. One night a month to meet with a team of your fellow believers to: Write letters and postcards, make phone calls, pray for specific needs, visit someone. Imagine again: Being part of a fantastic Outreach and Evangelism Program that WON'T wear you out! No one would want to miss out on that opportunity!
How can I be a part of this wonderful experience, you might ask? Glad you asked. Because this is His program: First, you need to surrender to Him! Second, surrender your time, and third, we need all of you that want to become Evangelism and Outreach Warriors to be well-trained. So:
Beginning September 20th, at 7 PM, we will meet in the multipurpose room for the First of Four two-hour training sessions. Session 2, 3 and 4 will be held on September 27, October 4 and October 11, 2016. The First Session will serve as a basic foundation for how GROW works. The main focus covers the five principles on which the GROW outreach program is built. The goals for Session 1 are:
1 To establish a clear, biblical basis for each believer to be involved in reaching people for Christ through the local church.
2 To present a structure of out reach that does not require an impossible time demand for team members.
3 To allow participants and the Mountain View Baptist to experience the joy of church growth and personal evangelism.
Please prepare your hearts and set aside time on your calendar for this exciting opportunity! Please contact Sid Graham at his email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 801-726-7444. It is important that I hear from all of you that are participating, so that I can get the session material to you in advance of the sessions.
Looking forward to serving Him with all of you! God Bless you.
