This Sunday, we are starting a brand new series at North Side called “Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?” The heart of this new series is a call for personal evangelism. We want our people to live the lifestyle of a missionary in their daily lives. Specifically, we want our people to be attentive and intentional about connecting with the people around them. We want them to live with their eyes wide open to the spiritual condition and needs of those in their own neighborhood. This series will seek to challenge our members to pay attention to the opportunities around them to point people to God.
We get the new Compass on Sunday which has this series and the next, “30 Days to Live.” We pray this month of March leading up to Easter will be a month where our church starts to bleed evangelism. If you are like me, this topic is one that causes shame in my life because I never feel like I am bold enough. I never feel like I am sharing enough. We are praying that we put aside our inadequacies and start praying that the Holy Spirit give us the boldness and power that Jesus promised (Acts 1:8).
Hope to see you there!
Just for fun:
Also, I am thrilled that my dear friends Josh and Tasha Via will be leading us in worship this Sunday. I led worship with them in college, got to lead worship at their wedding, and they are just all around some of my favorite people in the world. They will be leading for this weekend’s Disciple Now and I couldn’t pass up on them leading us on Sunday. You do not want to miss it!
