Sharing the Good News with Joy!

This Wednesday I will begin teaching a class about how to share the gospel naturally and with joy. The “Gospel Sharing” class will run about 7-8 weeks. We’ll meet in the Fellowship Hall at 6pm. After the teaching/ workshop time we will conclude with intercessory prayer for our non-Christian neighbors and hurting church members. This morning I read a great quote about evangelism from Mark Driscoll. I thought it was very helpful...

"Evangelism is the speaking and showing of the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to people who do not yet know Him. Evangelism is the natural overflow of a life lived in joy as a worshiper of God. Sadly, evangelism is often portrayed as something that Christians must do as a duty, rather than something that they get to do as a delight."

Here is the link to the whole piece- Evangelism by Mark Driscoll.

If you would like to join the class please come this Wednesday, January 7 at 6pm. We’d love to have anyone who is interested in sharing the good news of Jesus more clearly and passionately. Of if you are not a believer and simply what like to understand the essential truths of faith please come as well!
