Pastor's Blog: Reaching Our Community for Christ!
Last week I wrote: “Our commission as a church is to reach the nations with the gospel for the glory of God.” Well, we did just that by going door-to-door last Sunday. Our results were phenomenal! We had six people on the prayer team, and we had six teams going out – a total of 14 people, plus several in the children’s ministry. We reached 53 homes, made contact with 43, completed 12 surveys, shared the Gospel 8 times and had one profession of faith! Praise God.
We are planning several more “aggressive” evangelism events! I don’t mean that we are going to be aggressive toward people, but that we are going to be aggressive in our efforts to do evangelism. By now, you should know about the 180 Rally with The Old Paths on February 28 at 7 pm. The flyers are up and out – we will have “a concert of praise, worship & testimony celebrating god’s goodness and his awesome power to set one free from addiction!”
We are specifically targeting those in our community who are struggling with any sort of addiction. We will be working with the Rescue Mission and other churches and organizations that support groups like Celebrate Recovery. Please invite people to come. The concert is free and will include great music and powerful testimonies of God’s goodness to set us free.
We will follow up the concert with a Revival beginning on March 1 and running through Wednesday night, March 4. Please get these dates on the calendar. We need every TBC member to be present for both the concert and each revival service. Please begin praying now for a great outpouring of God’s grace and goodness during these days. Pray, attend, invite, and get excited about God is doing in our church.
Wednesday night – we are continuing a very important study! Join us at 6:15 for prayer meeting as we work through Thom Rainer’s “Autopsy of a Deceased Church.” We had a great turnout and wonderful discussion last week. Your input is crucial – looking forward to seeing you on Wednesdays.
This Sunday we are looking at Philippians 1:27-30, “Conduct Worthy of the Gospel.” Are you living in such a manner that if you were accused of being a Christian there would be enough evidence to convict you? It’s a great question that all of us should seriously consider.
As always, I am looking forward to what God will do at Tabernacle this coming Sunday. Please be present with your Bibles in hand as we worship the Lord together.
Blessings, YFJS, Bro Tom
