2019 Evangelism Team – Evangelism is welcoming new visitors to our church, but it is also helping prepare all those who attend to make a commitment, or renew their commitment to Jesus Christ--to become disciples for Christ. This means helping them to become Christians, to grow as Christians, and to serve as Christian disciples for Jesus. With a gentle thought in mind, “We are here to be a light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill”. Please join the Evangelism Team. For sign-up and questions, contact Sis. Susie Collins, Chair.
