Saturday Outreach Event
April 16th | 8:30-12:30
The THIRD thing I’d like you to know and pray about is our Saturday Outreach Event this coming April 16th. It’s the Saturday morning before Easter.
We have printed 5,000 flyers and we have over 500 Gospel tracks ready to go.
Bonnie Barlow, our Bless the City Coordinator, has also mapped out the neighborhood around the church and broken it up into mapped sections for each team. We need at least 25 teams to cover all of the ground we want to cover so please RSVP and let us know if you plan to be there.
We will meet at the church at 8:30 and have a light breakfast for anybody who wants/needs it. Tanner Clarke will do an evangelism training directly following that to help build your confidence and give everybody the tools they need to effectively engage in spiritual conversations.
After the training, we will break into teams, assign maps and start going door to door in the blocks surrounding the church. Each team will have door-hangers, tracks and a recording system to note which houses were visited and any conversations that need follow up. Whatever houses we don’t finish we can come back and do later. We’re developing a master plan to hit every home!
Once you’ve finished your section you can come back to the church and join the prayer team until all other teams arrive. At 11:45 we’ll serve a Chick-fil-a lunch and have teams give testimonies (if they have any.) We will close out by praying for our Sunday morning services and the homes we contacted.
Even if you’re not comfortable going out and talking to complete strangers, we still need you here for this event. Those who don’t go out will gather in the Sanctuary and pray for each team and the homes they will visit. The more prayer warriors we have the better!
If you aren’t physically able to go door-to-door but you can get to the church and pray then please RSVP.
If you and/or your family are planning on coming to the Saturday Outreach Event please RSVP so we can make sure we have plenty of food and supplies ready to go.
Here’s how you can pray:
- I believe we will meet people Saturday who don’t know the Lord. Ask God to start preparing their hearts NOW for the conversation they will have.
- Pray that God will raise up 100 people to go out and knock on doors or pray this next Saturday. We need a large turn out to cover the maps.
- Pray that God would give YOU a burden for the lost and a zeal for evangelism. Ask God to give you the courage to be there Saturday to participate at some level.
- Pray for Tanner Clarke as he trains us in evangelism and Bonnie Barlow as she organizes and administrates the event. (If you’d like to help with meals reply to the email and let me know!)
I think the participation and prayer behind this event will have a very large impact on the final prayer need which is Easter Sunday at Broadview.
