tn who is my neighbor wide tUnder the direction of Pastor Johns, our young adults, even those new to Metro, have been leading us in ministries to help the community surrounding the church.  These times we are living in are called ‘Post Religious’, meaning religion does not matter anymore; so I get excited when I see young adults taking the lead in ministries that embrace the community and spread God’s love. It says a lot about our church when others see people of all age groups working together.

tn XsandOs tBefore every game, coaches and players go through a game plan. This is especially important if the they've never played the opposing team.  To have a chance at winning, they need to know their opponent's strengths and weaknesses. They develop this knowledge by studying their opponents, by spending time looking at footage from several games, and developing an understanding of how the other team plays.  They then adapt their game plan to counter what their opponents will bring.  For example, if the opposing team has a strong running game, they know they need to focus on protecting the line, not sacking the quarterback, or preventing deep throws down the field.

Q2 SS-2012 Lesson 6: Personal Evangelism & Witnessing: (read Lesson 6)

 Evangelism and witnessing are essentially two sides of the same coin.  They both serve the same purpose of presenting the good news of salvation to others and encouraging them to accept Jesus as their Savior.  They both are essential to church growth. They differ primarily in duration. Evangelism is generally a planned series of meetings in which sequential lessons are presented, while witnessing is often a spontaneous opportunity to share with others one’s personal testimony of the good news of salvation. Evangelism seeks a wider audience, while witnessing focuses on the individual, sharing with him Jesus’ love for us, the ultimate sacrifice He made for us, and His imminent return to take us home with Him.  Both the evangelist and the witness are ambassadors for Christ, personally representing Him as they carry His message to the world. While both of these endeavors are necessary for church growth, personal witnessing, doubtless, contributes to both the growth of the church and the growth of the individual.
