Churches reach out: Part 2
Mitzie shares more about how her church has been sharing Jesus…
Part of our membership is involved in many community projects and Christian groups. Our speakers have taken this simple idea of the I Am Second wristband and shared it with other churches. Our district-wide Methodist youth confirmation retreat will be getting the wristbands and Bibles next weekend. They will be receiving information about the web site and encouraged to take this information back to their own churches for the possibility of their home congregations becoming involved in the I Am Second movement. Another small church, Paint Rock UMC, has been introduced to this movement and received these tools for their congregation to use.
There is an older couple in our church congregation who are worship leaders for an RV gathering in Texas as well as in Mississippi. They will be taking I Am Second wristbands and Bibles to share with these groups and to encourage them to participate in this movement. The couple sees the wristbands alone as a real conversation starter about your faith in Jesus Christ. They are excited about the project and their enthusiasm is contagious. I had one of our church members tell me that he now felt he had the opening he needed to share his faith. Handing out “tracts” was not his way of sharing Christ, but he is ready for the next person to “notice” his wristband. It is amazing what this little piece of black and white rubber will do… conversations have been flying in this little area of our big state. Thanks for the opportunity to be involved and your web site is awesome.
Thank you so much Mitzie for sharing this! It’s so exciting to see what God’s doing. It’s all about taking little opportunities to give a reason for your hope- to let others know why you’re Second and who is First.
