God has chosen us to complete the mission. God has put the future of reaching the world in our hands. us look at three things from Acts 1:8. "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Jesus said, "You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem..." When Jesus told this to his followers, they were in Jerusalem. Here’s the principle; start at home. Start with the people closest to you. Jesus once healed a demon possessed man and said, "’Go back home and tell people how much God has done for you.’ So the man went all over town telling how much Jesus had done for him." (LK 8:39)
So where are you to start? Right at home, in your own neighborhood. Go to your friends, your family, your coworkers, your neighbors, the person who delivers the paper, or the clerk in the store. People all around us are interested in spiritual things. They are spiritually hungry. George Gallup did a survey, discovered that over 100 million Americans have no church home, but 50 million of them said they would attend if somebody would just invite them!
According to Brown Church Development Group who C3 is partnering with,”there are over 23,000 people within ½ hour travel time of our church” just waiting for an invitation!
Celebration Community Church is hosting a “Bring A Friend” Sunday event THIS SUNDAY September 27th. Invite a friend, relative, neighbor or co-worker to attend one of our 4 services at 8:30, 10, 11:30am. (we usually have 5 services but our C3 Family Picnic at 5pm at Frontier Park will take the place of our 6pm service).
