Here’s the explanation given at Moody Church website, where Ed launched this initiative…
Lately, Pastor Ed has been talking about raising our outreach temperature for evangelism. In addition to a new Matthew mini-series, The Greatest Teaching from the Greatest Teacher: The Sermon on the Mount, we’re kicking off an evangelism outreach campaign to help each of us reach our neighbors with the gospel. How can you get involved?
Map Your Neighborhood
Join your Moody Church family in praying for and reaching out to our neighbors and friends with the gospel. Here’s how it works:
- On the map card, draw the immediate neighborhood around your home.
- On the back page (list side), write in the names of people on your map for whom you will be praying for opportunities to share the gospel.
- Then pray, build relationships with them (touch), and invite them to church as we launch our new sermon series on October 15.
The Sermon on the Mount mini-series will be a great entry point for non-believers to explore the Christian faith and the claims of Jesus. Everyone agrees that Jesus was a great teacher—even if they don’t follow him—and most people have at least heard of the Sermon on the Mount.
Will You Step Up?
At the end of Jesus’ ministry on earth, He commanded His followers to go and make disciples of all people, baptizing them and teaching them about God (Matthew 28:18–20).
So as the Christmas season fast approaches, be faithful in praying, reaching out, and inviting people to explore Jesus.
We are The Moody Church. Let’s build on our legacy of evangelism and make Jesus’ last words our first priority.
