Leading people by baby steps to talk about their faith and inviting others to church. We are handing out business cards each week with the instructions on them for the week. If you would like to purchase the original word and publisher files for all 13 weeks, you can do that in the store. However, the content and path to leading people is helpful.
How To Do It
The person handing out the homework, or pointing it out in the bulletin should have one story or one answer for the question that helps people start thinking. Also, people should be planted at fellowship hour to ask the questions for the week and get a conversation going.
Think of one story about how this church has affected your life.
Tell the story of how this church has changed your life at coffee hour to ONE person.
Think of one story that shows how your life is better because of Jesus.
Tell the story of how Jesus matters in your life to ONE person at coffee hour.
Name one thing that is scary about telling people about Jesus and one good thing.
When you feel nervous about telling someone about church or Jesus, what is one thing you can tell yourself to help you do it?
Think of a person who does not go to church and how Jesus might change their lives.
Contact the person you thought of last week, and mention something about how Jesus changed your life in casual conversation.
Pray for that person and whatever is going on in his or her life. You can share that you've done this, but don't have to.
Hand a flyer with church information casually to TWO people in a one-on-one conversation at one event this week or next.
What good news of Jesus will you invite at least TWO families to hear at Calvary Lutheran this Easter? Which TWO families?
Invite at least TWO more families to come worship with us on Easter. Including at least one sentence about why you think Easter matters. What is the Good News for you, in one sentence? How does Jesus change your life?
Send a message or make a phone call to the four families on Saturday letting them know you’ll see them tomorrow for Easter.
