How To Bless Your Neighbor – Week 1

How To Bless Your Neighbor – Week 1

When you’ve been transformed by God’s love, you can’t help but want others to experience the same grace and freedom.

But how do you share it without scaring them away or offending them? For most Christians, “evangelism” is an intimidating word that suggests handing out tracts to strangers or doing other awkward things. But what if there was a more organic, more authentic way to share your faith with your friends, neighbors, and coworkers?

Today, we start a new series called BLESS, which is based on a book of the same name by Pastor Dave Ferguson. Together, we are going to learn how to BLESS our community as we fulfill the mission God has given us. The first step is to begin with prayer.
