Using a Facebook group to reach out to hurting people
We've been working on our Facebook page for our newest evangelistic strategy called 'Issues I Face'. In that group, we've been sharing stories, links, and images and inviting the social media world to engage in conversation with a mentor.
Teach over-65s to use Web in your church or community
There was a time, not so long ago, when web usage in the West was quite low for the over-65 demographic. But no longer, as the infographic below shows.
The Great Wall Destroyer - #6745
When we go into the Father's presence sort of distant from each other, we almost always come out of His presence closer. Prayer softens hearts; prayer helps us see people and situations through God's eyes. And prayer is the great wall destroyer.
Getting Close to a VIP - #6737
You'll know that you're becoming like Jesus when you start to lose your fascination with people who are powerful, or those who can do something for you. You're becoming like Jesus when you feel yourself wanting to be with the people He thinks are important; not the ones the world says are important. The ones the world sees as powerless and unimportant.
No Big Deal - #6719

The Promise Keepers - #6683
God richly rewards the one who keeps his oath even when it hurts. He rewards the promise keepers. Oh, yeah, they're rare, but they are priceless.
Lottery Fever and Other Contagious Diseases - #6663

The Way to Your Father's Heart - #6658
Put your money, your time, mobilize your church to do something about needy people wherever they are, not just long distance loving. I'm talking about getting your hands dirty, personal involvement, family involvement. Teach your kids how to have a heart for the poor. Work first hand with some less fortunate people; help lift their burden. Do the work of God on earth.
