In 1953, the Southern Baptist Convention set a goal of enrolling one million new people in Sunday School the following year. It was titled, “Million More in ’54”. It was a crazy big goal, and even though they didn’t reach one million, they were able to get six hundred thousand people involved—way more than were previously going. Many of those people trusted Christ for the first time.
That’s what happens when you paint a vision of the possible: Let me present a vision of the possible to you.
In the next few weeks there are several outreach events planned specifically focusing on reaching the unchurched in our communities. Many people have invested a lot of time and treasure to make these events possible. I hope you will support them with your presence.
- April 7 – Easter Egg Hunt, Gorham
- April 14 – Easter Egg Hunt On The Ridge
- April 21 – 7 a.m. Easter Sunrise Service, 10:15 a.m. Easter Cantata “Lamb of God”
Author and theologian Henri Nouwen once said, “Pay attention to the people God puts in your path if you want to see what God is up to in your life.” There is at least one person that God has placed in your path right now that you can invite to be with us at each of these events.
Look and listen for the right time to invite a family member or friend. Pay attention to the people God puts in your path. Who is your one?
