Evangelism and Discipleship Seminar
Presented by Reverend Art Hallett
Saturday, July 21, 2018 | 8:30am – 11:30am
Multi-Ministry Area at First Friends Church, Canton

"This is an important event. I encourage every pastor and pastoral staff member to participate. Being able to share the Gospel is vital to effective ministry. This is an opportunity you do not want to miss." - Tom Crawford, Executive Director

Using the five fingers on your hand, Share Your Faith Workshops from Evangelism Explosion International (EE) introduce a Gospel presentation that’s easy to learn and hard to forget.

There is an accompanying workbook for this seminar (one per couple). Please RSVP by July 6th so we can order the appropriate number of workbooks. There is no required cost, but donations will be accepted at the door.
Gabriel and Suzana Massey - Pray for God’s blessing on these precious servants of the Lord. Pray for Gabriel as he leads the Christian school of nearly 2,400 and for God’s provision to identify a leader to succeed him. Pray for local outreach as a new Believers Fellowship hosts 75 folks each week in a person’s home. Please remember our Indian brothers and sisters in prayer even as Paul prayed for the Roman church: “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:5-6)

Quote for the Week

"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit - just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call - one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." - Ephesians 4:1-6 (ESV)
