Romans 1:16 – Studies show many people don’t attend church because they are not invited. Inviting is something everybody can do.
August 28, 2016 – Corey Fronk
Jeremiah 29:4-7 – In Jeremiah, God has us seeking the welfare of our city, and neighbors are an easy place to start. Look for ways to serve them, or receive help from them, or serve the neighborhood together. People like the idea of helping others.
August 21, 2016 – Michael Taylor
2 Timothy 4:2-5 – Evangelism as a life style. Persistence. Be prepared for any season of evangelism.
PACKING A READINESS BAG
August 14, 2016 – John Myer
2 Timothy 4:1-2 – We should be ready for the opportunities the Lord gives us by preparing short gospel messages, and having materials on hand.
BEING THE “CHRISTIAN” NEIGHBOR
August 7, 2016 – Seth Evans
John 9:1-11 – Having laid some common ground with your neighbor, it is likely that some sort of open door will emerge regarding faith. Having a short testimony (100 words or fewer) prepared, like the healed blind man, is a great way to walk through that open door.
SERVANT TO ALL
July 31, 2016 – Jeff Friess
Mark 10:43-45 – We use the book of Mark which which focuses on Jesus’ deeds. Sometimes in a small church were serving in so many different areas, we miss opportunities to be a “servant to all” that are right in front of us.
July 24, 2016 – Ray DeMay
1 Corinthians 9:19-23 – We may not share the same interests with everyone, but using Paul’s example in 1 Cor 9 we will dive into what it takes to “become all things to all people” for the sake of the gospel.
SENT TO SEARCH
July 17, 2016 – John Myer
The number one problem in doing the work of evangelism is forgetting to look where God is already working. Once that is determined, the rest is “cake.”
FRIENDS & BRIDGES
July 7, 2016 – Thad Townsend
John 1:40-46 – Friendship evangelism can help build bridges to normal gospel conversations, making inviting easier, and help in the workplace.
Audio is not available for today’s message due to technical difficulties. Please check out the summary of live tweets from today below for highlights:
Here’s a quick lesson on how to make friends: you talk with someone and find out you have some shared interest.
The moment you believe in Jesus you have something big to talk about and you don’t have to wait to share the good news.
Schedule a time to spend time with someone this week and pray for them and your time together before you meet.
A WARM WELCOME
July 3, 2016 – Michael Taylor
Luke 5:27-32 – Learn some tips from the Apostle Matthew on how to welcome your friends and warm their hearts.
June 26, 2016 – Seth Evans
Matthew 9:10-13 – When engaging your literal neighbor (we all have at least one), one of the first steps in striking up a relationship is often finding some form of common ground. In Matthew 9:10-13 we see Jesus doing exactly this through the eating of food.
BENDED KNEES & OPEN DOORS
June 19, 2016 – John Myer
Mark 12, John 6, Acts 8
Unfortunately, the audio system malfunctioned so there is no recording for today’s sermon. Check out the live tweeting for a recap of the sermon:
We have an assignment and calling by God (1 Cor. 7:17) but we often miss it as we hunt for big things rather than the small things.
Jesus said one woman’s pouring out of nard upon Him was beautiful and would be told wherever the gospel is proclaimed. (Mark 14)
We all received a gifting from the Holy Spirit when we were saved but it will remain a small thing until we give it to Jesus to use.
Let us be like the small boy who gives his small gift to Jesus and see what happens. (John 6)
As we are faithful in the small things we multiply those small things until they can turn into a mountain. (Song of Songs 8:14)
June 21, June 25, and July 1 are our next 3 upcoming opportunities to serve the Grandview Heights community. Let’s do these small things.
