Practices of Christian Community Sermon Series: Evangelism


Date & Time:  August 16, 2015 at 9:30 am

Address:  5501 Nebraska Ave., Toledo, 43615 (Nebraska is between Reynolds Rd. and Holland-Sylvania Rd.)

Sermon: "The E-Word"  (Pastor Joel Shenk)

Scriptures: Isaiah 52:7-10 (related texts: Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Acts 1:6-11, 1 Cor. 1:22-25, 1 Cor. 2:1-5, Matthew 28:16-20)

Focus of the Sermon: The word “evangelism” has in some ways become a dirty word (deservedly so in certain cases).  And yet the sharing our faith, and inviting others into saving faith, is an important practice that the church is called to do.  The church is called to share the good news.  

Action the sermon calls us:  To announce the good news:  “Jesus is Lord.”  To stimulate practical thinking about how each one can share our faith in ways that are authentic to who we are.  

Suggestions:  Evangelism Practice
