Jesus is coming soon! We see the signs all around us. How quickly this world is going to wrap up, we can only imagine. If ever there was a time we must take the gospel to the world, it is now.
How we reach out to the world must change
The ability to hold a public meeting is not possible right now. God has given us the opportunity to grow as a church in a different way, a biblical way. Instead of focusing on the church building for growth, we have the opportunity to start ministering through our homes.
Notice this powerful quote:
“The formation of small companies as a basis of Christian effort is a plan that has been presented before me by One who cannot err. If there is a large number in the church, let the members be formed into small companies, to work not only for the church members but for unbelievers also.”Evangelism p. 115
This Grows us personally
One of the beauties of care groups is it does more than reach out to people outside our churches. It also grows us personally as well. We need these studies for ourselves. As we study with others these important areas (how to study the Bible, the foundational beliefs, how to grow a family closer to Jesus, marriages, finances, and so much more) we will find ourselves growing deeper with Jesus as well.
I want to challenge you to watch or listen to the video below.
Do you resonate with what you just watched? Do you want to lead out in life-changing groups that will deepen your walk with God, bring greater fulfillment to your life, and grow you spiritually?
The Pastoral staff are asking the Lord to raise up care group leaders. If you are interested, then join us tomorrow evening for a zoom leadership meeting.
Wednesday, September 30th, at 6:30 PM, there will be a zoom leadership meeting for those who would like to explore holding care groups in their homes.
