Pastor’s Page - April 2014 -- “NEW YEAR -- NEW CHALLENGE!”

John 4:28-30: Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” They came out of the town and made their way toward him.

In 2013 I challenged the good people at St. Paul’s to increase their worship attendance. If you reached 85 people in worship, Jeanne and I would host a chicken dinner for the entire congregation. The Children’s Christmas Program on December 22nd saw an all-time high of 93 people in worship. Congratulations!

But now it is a new year and I put a new challenge before you. IF ST. PAUL’S TAKES IN 10 NEW MEMBERS BETWEEN APRIL 2014 AND APRIL 2015--JEANNE AND I WILL HOST A CHRISTIAN MUSIC BAND FOR A “CONGREGATION AND FRIENDS” ENTERTAINMENT EVENT.

TEN NEW MEMBERS: This can be by taking in new members by Baptism, Transfer of membership from another LC-MS congregation, or by Affirmation of Faith from any other church affiliation. Oh, and by the way, you already have a start with new member by infant Baptism, Kaydence Brennan. That’s One!

HOW DO YOU DO IT?: By actively practicing the “COME AND SEE” Outreach method. Like the woman at the well in the above referenced text, she met and knew Jesus as her Savior. She went back to her friends and family and invited the whole town to “Come and see” Jesus. She had no carefully planned or scripted Evangelism program. She didn’t use any sales pitches or gimmicks. She simply invited everyone she knew who didn’t know Jesus to come and meet Him.

You do do that, too. All of you know someone in your life who doesn’t go to church--who may be struggling in life--who is searching for something better in their Christian walk. Invite them to attend worship with you. Or begin with a “less threatening” invitation such as attending one of our family events or Worship in the Park, or VBS Sunday.

Your invitation to worship brings them into the presence of Jesus and His Word. We stand on the confident belief that God’s Word and the Holy Spirit has the power to bring about faith in the individual. If you do your part to invite, the Word and Spirit will do their part. If they accept your invitation, bring them to church if you have to. Stay with them, help them with the Order of Service. Introduce them to the members of St. Paul’s. Introduce them to the Pastor. And everyone--talk with them. Find a common bond. Make them feel welcome.

OUTREACH SUNDAY: In the near future, we’ll be having an OUTREACH SUNDAY during worship. Much of the service will be devoted to discussing the “how to do” Come and See approach to making new disciples. In the meantime, start thinking about and making a list of everyone you can invite to “COME AND SEE” Jesus.
