Sharing Christ With Our Jerusalem

“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20 ESV

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8 ESV

The big question is this, how do we carry out the command to go and evangelize today? I have been through many training sessions on evangelism and the different ways of sharing the Gospel with those who do not know Christ. I personally believe that outreach is in the hands of our church members.

We offer opportunities to reach out to our community and this past Sunday was a good example of one of those events. Our Fall Festival was a great opportunity for our church to reach out to the people in our community and introduce them to Eastern Hills Baptist Church and as a result, have an opportunity to share the Gospel with those who might not know Christ. This year our response from our community was great.

We had over 500 people participate in our Fall Festival. Many of these don’t have a church home or perhaps don’t have a relationship with Christ. Thank you for how you responded and helped to make this event a success.

During the next two months we will have other opportunities that can be used for outreach and evangelism. Our Grateful Gathering will be November 23rd at 5:30 PM. We will gather at the Pines for a Thanksgiving meal, activities and a time of Worship. This is an opportunity for you to invite your friends and introduce them to Eastern Hills and Christ. On December 5th, we will have our musical presentation of the Christmas story, “Christmas Hope” at 4:00 PM in the Sanctuary. This will be another opportunity to invite your friends and introduce them to Eastern Hills and Christ.

We believe that the best way to share Christ is one on one. One person telling another how to know Christ in a personal way. The best person to share with your friends is YOU.
