6. Isn’t there something we should all be doing? Wow, another incredible question. And you know right? Yeah, thats right, I have another workshop just to help you learn to share your faith. It’s called A.C.T.S. level 4, and its all about evangelism.
Sharing the good news of the gospel with a lost world. I sure am glad someone shared Christ with me and I know you are just as happy that someone did with you as well.
I am now sixty-one (61) years old. Yep, people still get that old but I never would have without Jesus in my life. I hope I have gotten the opportunity to share my story (testimony) with you by now.
My point is this, even at my age I have still never had anyone share the truth about my sin and God’s love through Christ with me outside the confines of a church building.
Almost half of the people alive on the planet today have never heard the good news about Jesus Christ. We have the message and we must take it to them. Our obligation is greater than that of a doctor or a fireman. We have the message to rescue the world from hell. (Yeah, I believe in hell. By the way be sure to read the page about the seven essential beliefs)
We have used several different plans and still do, but our main focus is on a seminar called, “The Way of the Master”. It will help you learn to share your faith without fear and without a lot of memorization.
7. Tender Loving Care Groups. (T.L.C.s)
We have a small group ministry that meets in homes for the purpose of fellowship and maturity. Check the web calendar or the church calendar to find one to attend.
8. Bible School for all ages.
Sunday School is the backbone of Christian education. I thank God for the growth I experienced personally studying God’s Word with anointed teachers. And, for the tremendous growth I have found in being a teacher.
Bible School starts at 9:30 am every Sunday Morning.
9. Wednesdays are Special at Open Arms.
Every Wednesday of the month there is something different and wonderful going on at Open Arms. On the First Wednesday we have Worship and a “Fellowship Dinner” in our dining room. Its a blast.
On the second Wednesday of the month we have “Family Night”. “Men 4 Real” meets in the gym. Right now and for the next year I will be continuing a study of the “Characteristics of a Man of God”.
The women are studying “the Woman of Worth” and our children are being ministered to by one of our employees so all of our adults can receive ministry on that evening.
The third Wednesday evening is “KIDS Night”. Everything we do revolves around children. Our mascot “Judah”, “Dr. Bucky” and “Dr. John” always have something stirred up for me to have to fix. Its a great time for the whole family. Don’t miss it.
The fourth Wednesday evening is “Konnections”. We celebrate the church universal while standing in the present we take a glance at the past and gaze into the future. On this night we keep two of the commandments of our Lord for all Christians. We celebrate Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Four times a year there are five Wednesdays in a month. When this happens we have another special “Fellowship Dinner” especially dedicated to those who have been saved, baptized or become members of Open Arms.
Do you know what the Lord wants you to do, or are you ready to do something until you find out?
We need help in almost every area of our ministry. Please, don’t wait for someone to ask you. Some of God’s doors say “knock”. If you don’t find something right away don’t give up. Some of the Lord’s doors say “push”.
The whole world is riding on us getting the job done. I am asking you to help me do it.
If you are interested in an area of ministry don’t think that it might be the devil. He doesn’t want you to server anyone but him. Don’t think it might just be you. Come on, don’t you know by now that we are too selfish and lazy to come up with ministry idea our own selves.
Trust God and let Him use you to make a difference. The world and the church need you. God’s counting on you and so am I.
