Reaching Out

The results are in and the tribe has spoken: We need to do much more to get the word out about our church! We had some great ideas generated at our special congregational meeting last Sunday (check the last post for the slideshow.)

But here’s one you can put into practice today. We’ll call this the Outreach Idea of the Week. Each week we will post one practical way you can reach-out to those around you. Then the next Sunday we’ll share how our efforts went.

Outreach Idea of the Week: One way of showing someone you care while at the same time connecting with them spiritually is very simple: prayer. Commit to asking a friend neighbor or coworker how you can pray for them. You can simply say something like, “I try to pray for various people every day, is there any way I can pray for you?” It’s a way to show you care in a non-threatening way! But if you ask - make sure you do pray!

Why not ask a friend, neighbor, or co-worker how you can pray for them today? Next Sunday, I’ll ask how things went - so be ready to share!

The well wisher of your soul’s happiness,

Pastor Tom
