Announcements Week of September 24th

EVANGELISM EQUIPPING SESSION: Scott McNamara
September 26 | 6:30PM-8:30PM | Contact: GC Office
Jesus At The Door (JAD 3:20) is a Christian evangelism initiative birthed on the streets of Coleraine, Northern Ireland, during a powerful move of God which has seen over 6,000 people accept Jesus since 2014. Using a simple, no-pressure approach to evangelism, JAD 3:20 seeks to equip, empower, and enable every believer to share their faith and lead people into relationship with Jesus. Scott McNamara asked God to teach him how to become more effective at talking to people about Jesus on the streets. Over the course of two years, with God’s guidance, Scott developed and refined an extremely simple method that can be memorized and used by anyone. JAD 3:20 uses a simple, structured approach – seven simple questions that lead people to a place where they can decide whether they are ready to accept Jesus into their heart.

AN EVENING WITH MARK GREGSTON

Parents across the country all have something in common—at some point, they’ll be the parent of a teen. And when they are, it’s best to have an approach to combat the culture that constantly pushes and pulls at their children. Whether that phase is coming, or if it has already arrived, join Mark Gregston for a seminar filled with wit, stories, and wisdom—with a focus on what teens really need from their parents as well as practical advice between teaching and training when it comes to raising kids. Tickets Are Free!
