Mark 16:15-16 “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
The righteous have been sent out to the world. How much more can we be reminded of that than during times like these? We must continue to reach out to the lost and shepherd the saved. We must embrace stepping out of our comfort zones for which we are so comfortable to shine the Light into the darkness. Many creative ideas have risen within a short period of time. We would love to hear how your church is responding, stepping out, contact us at .
When was the last time your congregation met outside the walls? Last Easter? Easter Sunrise Service from 20 years ago? Two churches have reported opening the doors to the church and stepping out to have services outside, with social distancing included. Can you imagine being out on a grassy knoll, or along a riverbank worshiping God within His creation?
How about meeting together in small groups, ten or fewer individuals engaging to partake of the Bread and water of life?
What about the ordinance of communion, could it be organized and administered “outside the walls”?
Embracing technology – Technology is a word that can make the best tremble in fear. However, it is not a fearsome giant like Goliath. It is a tool to be embraced. Churches have begun exploring creating video recordings of worship services, devotions, and sermons to place on GodTube or YouTube for others to see. Some have taken the step to be a little more on the edge of technology by live-streaming the Word. Within the first week, with rough implementation, reports have come in that churches’ sites are reflecting exponential growth in “attendees.” Viewers have tripled and quadrupled the engagement of the church. Individuals have even been reporting that they accepted the call to repentance.
