Jeremiah 15:19 (NIV)
19 Therefore this is what the LORD says:
….Let this people turn to you,
but you must not turn to them.
The world is going crazy right now. We are called here in Jeremiah to not become like the world, but to turn the world to Jesus! Normallly, we’ve done that through our fall and spring evangelistic meetings. Yet, with future shut-downs looming, more and more restrictions to physical meetings, we just don’t know how to plan for a fall evangelistic REACH-OUT. Therefore, we are planning something new and exciting. We want you to be part of this with us!
Everyone wants to be ready to see Jesus. The best way I know how to get ready is to study the Bible with someone else. Really! It makes you REACH DEEPER into the word when you study with someone else who asks you hard questions. It makes you REACH-DEEP because you help them and share with them. The Bible becomes more real, more personal and more applicable as you study with others.
Now, if we are truly living in the end times, then we should be sharing the message of hope that we as Adventists carry and are responsible for sharing. It’s the gospel and it’s an understanding of scripture that most people do not enjoy. Therefore we are planning a major Bible Study REACH-OUT that will begin in just a few weeks. Here’s what it is:
- It’s about members being trained to give personal Bible studies
- via telephone
- via zoom
- through the mail
- through email
- or – as people are willing and able – live one-on-one
- You choose how to give them in conjunction with the requests as they come in….
Our goal is to get 150 Bible studies going during this fall campaign. And to make that possible, we need to have at least 50 people involved. Currently we have 21 people signed up to help. So, would you consider being one of the next 29 people? Would you consider giving Bible studies? Would you consider being part of this fall REACH-OUT?
This isn’t going to be hard. You will be trained how to grade people’s lessons, then make some encouraging comment on their lessons, send them back and get them going on the next lessons. You will be trained to pray for people, to encourage people and we will support you through this whole process.
If you’d like to be part of this process, please go to this site and tell us. We are planning to do the training on September 12. Just click here and sign up! This is an exciting way to bring revival and share Jesus at the same time:
Thanks for making a difference!
