Reaching People...

235,000.  We talk about that number a lot around here.  There are 235,000 unchurched people within a twenty-minute drive of NorthBridge Church.  It’s crazy to think about!  And yet why not?  Why not pray, dream and ask God to use our little church to reach those 235,000?

You’re going to hear a lot more about this in 2009.  In fact, it’s why we’re launching some experiments in the weeks ahead (Northbridge Music Project).  In the meantime, here are three statements I am learning and re-learning when it comes to reaching people for Christ.

1. You must reach people where they are, not where you want them to be.

2. The greatest evangelism tool is not a well-written tract but a well-ordered life.

3.  A dialogue is better than a monologue.  

Evangelism “strategies” often underestimate the incredible importance of simply listening, and understanding where people are coming from (see Point #1.)  If I’m not willing to really listen, I probably don’t really care.

What do you think?

Have you recently walked in the doors of NorthBridge and wondered what’s next? If so, then join us for NEXT, where we will provide a 20-minute overview of our church mission and strategy and help you determine your best next step. NEXT will begin shortly after the 10:30 a.m. service today and is held in the NEXT (Xtreme) room, just down the hall from the resource table.  Childcare available.

October "INTERSECT" Opportunities.

Rake-N-Run Saturday, Oct. 25th, 10-12pm. 
It's simple. We'll meet here at the school with our rakes, work-gloves & tarps. NorthBridge will supply the yard bags. We'll divide up throughout the local community and rake leaves for those who could use a little help.

Halloween Candy Connection Friday Oct. 31, 5:30-8pm
We're asking everyone to donate full size candy bars over the next few weeks. Then, on Halloween, we'll hand it all out from a few select homes in the immediate area
along with glow necklaces, some NorthBridge info., friendly smiles & a silent prayer.

Comment below to if you plan on helping out with either of these projects.
Got your own ideas for a future "Intersect Project"? Let us know about them!

Just Stop It!

So I'm surfing around the other day and come across one of my favorite clips. Makes me laugh every time. Only this time, after watching it, I was left thinking. What things in my life do I need to "just stop"? What about you?

Imagine with me what would happen this week if, through the power of Christ, we "Just Stopped"...
...bringing our work home.
...making excuses for not inviting that friend to church.
...worrying about the future.
...whatever is getting in the way of our spending regular time with God. beyond our means.

You can listen to Jayson & I discuss this topic further over on the podcast page.
Walk On,
