It’s bible talk week! And when the bible talks, God moves. Our Mission Map is getting filled up more and more each week with people sharing their faith, hosting hospitality nights and this week we took the parables of Jesus all over our town in homes, coffee shops and even at the workplace. We went from having zero bible talks as a church (we’ve always focused more on personal bible studies) to having nearly a dozen gatherings with the bible opened. Personally, my neighbors on both sides of our house came over and we had other new people come as well. Everyone in the church who participated commented on how easy it was and how impactful. We will definitely do more spontaneous bible talks in the future.
We’re finishing the hometown missionary adventure strong with a gospel night in two weeks. The invitations have been passed out and we’re praying for open hearts to come and hear about their souls and God’s grace. We’re starting to invite people in earnest to the event.
