When God called Abraham, in the first book of the Bible (Genesis 12:2), He told him that He would bless him in order for Abraham to be a blessing to the world.
The same is true of us – we are blessed to be a blessing. God has placed us in this town to bless the communities around us. If we can all catch the heart of BLESS, this promises to be much more than a teaching series. We want it to be a key part of who we are, a way for us all to live out our mission, and a means to seeing our town changed for Jesus.
Yet we all know how hard it can be to try telling those outside the church about Jesus. How will people respond? What will they think of us? What if we don’t have all the answers to their questions?
This is why we ran this series in Autumn 2018, and will continue to keep BLESS going at King’s. BLESS is a way of equipping the church to intentionally love and serve the people around us.
BLESS is made up of five simple steps that anyone can do – Begin with prayer, Listen, Eat, Serve and share our Story.
