Not our arguments as much as our influence will finish Christ's work, because nobody was ever won to Jesus by a person he didn't like. "The influence of a holy life is the most convincing sermon that can be given in favor of Christianity. Argument, even when unanswerable, may provoke only opposition; but a godly example has a power that it is impossible wholly to resist” (AA 510.2).

Part 5 of this sermon series focuses on the question: "Who is my neighbor?" Using the familiar story of the Good Samaritan, we will study the parallels between Jesus'; audience in Jericho that day and those of us who today may still be pondering, "Who is my neighbor?" and how will my actions reflect the principle illustrated by the unwanted, rejected Samaritan who showed mercy to his enemy.

Part 3 explores the disciples' experience on the road to Emmaus; a story worth retelling because it reminds us that our Christian journey starts with God.
07/02/2016
The story of Zacchaeus is one that is often set aside for children, in this message however we explore the story to find where we as a church stand. The picture of evangelism and the gospel that unfolds in this story offer something for the followers of Jesus today.

What do you think about when you hear the words personal evangelism? For most people, those words carry a lot of baggage. It evokes scary memories of going door-to-door or speaking with strangers. But is that what evangelism is actually about? In Part 1 of this series we’ll explore the model that Jesus gives, and here’s the good news—it doesn’t involve speaking with strangers.

Michigan Advance Partners

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Have you ever looked at all the ministries happening across Michigan and think, I would love to be able support all of them? While it does not include every possible ministry happening in the state, Michigan Advance Partners helps to support many of the major initiatives across the state, including the following: 

Evangelism – 1/3 of MAP offerings go to fund public evangelism, CAMPUS Ministries, Bible Study Offer, lay training, VBS, and many other evangelistic areas.

Education – 1/3 of MAP offerings go to fund several areas of education, including Project Assist which has helped hundreds of students with financial needs to attend one of the four senior academies in the state. It also helps fund school equipment purchases, and a special subsidy for our Conference boarding academy, GLAA. 

Camp Au Sable and Campmeeting/Campground each receive 4% of MAP offerings to help fund improved facilities and provide necessary equipment. Both facilities provide numerous opportunities for ministry throughout the year. Lastly, 25% of MAP offerings are pooled together to support building purchases, new build and remodeling, and special evangelism projects. During the last 5 years, the Lay Advisory Committee has reviewed and approved over  $1.1 million of funding to numerous churches and schools across the state to help them continue to minister in their respective areas. Thank you for your continued support to MAP. Together we can partner to grow these ministries and hasten the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
