EVANGELISM FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE
We believe Christians are called to proclaim the Good News of Jesus to the others. B.L.E.S.S. is an acronym that the Evangelical Covenant Church of America created as a unifying approach to evangelism—a non-threatening, demystifying approach.
BEGIN WITH PRAYER
We pray, in the name of Jesus, for those who do not currently enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that we would be shown opportunities to help them take the first steps toward beginning that relationship.
B.L.E.S.S. EVERY HOME
INTENTIONAL WAYS TO B.L.E.S.S.
Connecting with God and interceding for our neighbors
Connecting with our neighbors, building meaningful relationships and doing all we can to demonstrate God’s love to them by listening, serving and eating with them!
Be discerning but don’t wait too long; we share our story and God’s story.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR US?
We have a three-part approach to BLESSing at Plymouth Covenant Church
Each person who calls Plymouth Covenant Church their home is encouraged to invest in and invite as many people as possible to enjoy a relationship with Jesus.
HOST YOUR NEIGHBORS: We have a handful of “parties in a bag” people can borrow that include a bean bag toss game, ladder toss, and other ideas so you can host backyard meals and parties to build relationships with neighbors (while the weather is cooperative, of course). Please contact the church office if interested (763-559-4300).
This is all about praying for and creating opportunities that best suit your “wiring.” You may be going on a mission trip and need medical supplies. Consider asking your neighbors to donate to that cause and then have a follow-up gathering to share highlights? Why not find out when your neighbors moved into the neighborhood and have an anniversary party for them? These are just simple ways to GO BLESS in your neighborhood.
If you have more ideas or stories of BLESSing others please click on the IDEAS button below. We love to capture those stories and share them with the congregation!
