MAKING THE GOSPEL RELEVANT
TO OUR COMMUNITY
"The harvest is great, but the workers are few.
So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest;
ask him to send more workers into his fields."
-Jesus, Matthew 9:36-37 NLT
"Let us, your servants, see you work again;
let our children see your glory.
And may the Lord our God show us his approval
and make our efforts successful.
Yes, make our efforts successful!"
-Moses, Psalm 90
A New Schedule
Our initially published schedule for 2023 has been modified, due to an unexpected demand for our "Conversations" classes, and other complications... Not to mention the return to a three-service schedule!
We'll return to our normal lifegroup discussion questions derived from weekly sermons for a little while before jumping into our next Ray Comfort book. The BEST time to start that book will be after the upcoming Super Tailgate Party!
Here's the new overview:
Finish "Anyone But Me"
"Like No Other" discussion questions
Lifegroup break- picnics and travel

"My 3 in 23"
Spend some time asking about your group and their three. Pray for them by name, encourage your people on their efforts.
Watch a Ray Comfort witnessing video with your group. They are very encouraging! You won't just hear someone talking about evangelism, but you will watch Ray actually do it!
Encourage your people to be praying for their three, and discuss the chapters in the schedule below.

Ray Comfort Doesn't.
I use the "sinners prayer" all the time when leading someone to Christ. Ray Comfort says the prayer is "unbiblical." Are we wrong in this? Here is my response:
Be Flexible. Sort of.
We've got flexibility... My group always takes longer than the schedule calls for. Go at your group's pace. You know what your group needs better than our schedule does.
