Show and Tell
We all know it as a kid’s game – or a program at school. We used to take an item from our world to school, show it to our friends and then, tell them about it.
We are using that idea during the month of October here at FBCA. It is Kim Grice’s idea. She is the Director of Community Connections at our church. Kim is in charge of leading us to both get connected to our community – and help new folks get connected to our church community.
The emphasis this month is all about evangelism. Kim oversees our evangelism ministry. She challenges us with her own lifestyle. Kim has led countless people to Christ personally. She does it naturally and as a matter of course. I am inspired to be a better evangelist because of Kim’s example.
So – what is Show and Tell? Here is how it works. We have purchased 1000 nice, re-usable, large coffee thermos cups. They have “Blessed People Bless People” emblazoned on them. We want you to take one or two. We are providing you with a small card to place in the cup. It also has the logo “Blessed People Bless People” on it. We want you to give this cup to someone who needs to know Jesus. Write a note of encouragement on the card we are providing.
Now – you might also add a gift card to Starbucks, Sonic, Amazon, QT (my favorite), or whatever. You may fill the cup with candy. Perhaps you might put a small bottle of Mountain Dew in it (just sayin’). Whatever.
The gift is your opportunity to show someone you care about them. It is a simple gesture. Anyone can do it. We want you to do it!!
Then, ask God to provide you with an opportunity to tell this person your own faith story. You don’t have to have a PhD in Theology to share the Gospel! You have a faith story. God has saved you. God has provided for you. God has rescued you. You have a story to tell someone else. You can very naturally have a conversation about how God is at work in your life.
You might want to use our theme “Blessed People Bless People” as an entrée to a spiritual conversation. For example, “You know, that statement on this coffee cup is actually true. Can I tell you how I have been blessed?”
I’m praying for all of us as we use October to show and tell!
