SEPTEMBER 3 - OCTOBER 1, 2017
Sermon Series: BLESS
BLESS is a new approach to prayer and evangelism. It’s less about downloading information or memorizing scripts, and more about loving our neighbors well. It helps us get “unstuck” and practice evangelism more effortlessly. BLESS is an intentional pathway for persons of all ages who follow Jesus to become like Jesus and join the mission of Jesus
God’s way of reaching and restoring the world has always been through blessing. These five missional practices make up the acronym BLESS and are a way to participate in the strategy God gave Abraham to reach the world. “And I will bless you… and you will be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). As we engage these practices daily, we partner with God’s Spirit to bless those who do not know him.
Join us through the month of September and into October as we learn more about applying each of these missional practices, Sundays at 10:30AM.
About BLESS: A Letter From Beth Seversen
I’m excited to introduce you to a new way of thinking about evangelism. We know that God has always sought to reach and restore the world through blessing. Since the time of Abraham, God has blessed his people so that we might bless those who do not know him.
I invite you to practice these five simple practices with those in your spheres of influence—friends, relatives, acquaintances, neighbors and colleagues—the people outside of God’s family—with the hope that we may help them travel further in their journey toward making faith commitments to Jesus.
As we seek to authentically BLESS others daily in the midst of your deepening relationships with the people in your life, I believe God will use each of us to bless our world with Christ.
For his glory and kingdom,
Director of Evangelism
