The three tasks for Sunday School are: (1) reaching people, (2) teaching people, and (3) ministering to people. Of these three tasks, reaching people is the most important. Why? Because you can’t teach those you don’t reach, and you can’t minister to those you don’t reach. Of those three tasks for Sunday School, reaching people must be the most important one. Why? Because you don’t assimilate people you don’t reach, you don’t involve people you don’t reach, and you don’t build strong, healthy relationships with people you don’t reach. If you don’t reach people, you can’t even have Sunday School!
According to joshhunt.com, “A Sunday School lacking evangelism is a broken index finger to the rest of the ministry of the church. It all starts with evangelism. No evangelism, no teaching, no discipleship, no involvement, no assimilation, no nothing! We must keep the main thing the main thing. As we plan and prioritize the work of the Sunday School, we must always keep evangelism on the front burner.”
Beginning in January 2020, we will introduce a new outreach strategy for our church. I ask that you begin to pray as we reach out to our community and to those God is sending our way.
Capital Campaign Project Update
We have started the next project phase of our renovations, which will be updating the Fellowship Hall. The stained-glass windows will be cleaned and resealed first. Our plan is to have this part of the project completed before the holidays. The second part of the project will begin after February 15, 2020. We will be repainting the room, repairing the plaster on the walls, installing new doors, new flooring, and new furnishings during the second phase of the project.
During this time of renovation, we will have to rearrange some events and meeting times. Please be patient as we continue to upgrade our facilities.
