HOSPITALITY IN 2013
"Christian hospitality isn't just Christians serving others from their homes...
it is serving Christ Jesus from their hearts." (Sandy Willoughby)
Challenge question: To how many people have you shown hospitality this year?
Van ministry "Buddy System"--We would love for each of our kids to have one person or couple that is their "buddy". This can be as simple as just making contact on Sunday morning or as in depth as you would like. If you have an interest in the mentoring ministry, but your circumstances are a hindrance, consider this alternative. See Andrew Clement, Rob White, or Luis Sanabria for more information.
A fund has been set up to assist with the Van and Mentoring ministries. If you would like to participate at any time, you may give through the chapel and mark your gift accordingly.
The Basketball Ministry gospel outreach is held every Thursday evening throughout the school year. If you are interested in assisting on a rotating basis (about once per month), please contact Mark Shelley.

"Our Daily Bread" and "Day of Praise"
"Our Daily Bread" and "Days of Praise" devotional booklets are now located in the tract rack in the hallway.
New Tract Rack
Select some tracts from the new tract rack in the upstairs hallway and commit to using them as a witnessing tool this week.
Why Tracts are Effective
· Many people never go to church or read the Bible. A tract may be the only clear presentation of the Gospel they will ever receive.
· A tract can go anywhere inexpensively. You can carry it in your pocket or purse, place it in a rack, or send it through the mail.
· A tract will reinforce your personal witness. Even if you can’t follow up, the reader can write to the publisher’s address on the back for further help.
· Some people will not listen to you, but will accept a tract. Many people have been saved through reading (and rereading) a tract in privacy.
How to Use Tracts
When you give a tract, you are representing the Lord. Here are a few suggestions on how to witness for Jesus Christ with tracts.
· Prayerfully. Ask the Lord to give you a love for Christ and a genuine concern for those whom you will meet. Pray that the Holy Spirit will,
through the tracts you give, open hearts and minds to the Gospel.
· Practically. Be sensitive to the needs and interests of those around you, and be equipped to use tracts when it is appropriate.
· Pleasantly. It costs so little to smile, but a smile goes so far. If a person refuses a tract or wants to argue, be pleasant. Don’t argue.
· Plentifully. Tracts cost so little that you can afford to give them freely. Certainly some people will throw them away. People turn off the radio, yet we still broadcast the Gospel. Be persistent, and trust the Lord to bring forth fruit.
· Prospectively. Tracts open the door to further witness. But if you have an opportunity to share your faith, don’t give a tract as an excuse to not witness.
Other Ways to use Tracts
· Include tracts in the mail with greeting cards and bills. Send them to friends, shut-ins, and visitors to your church. Put tracts in your church bulletin for visitors.
· Give them to waitresses, gasoline attendants, and salespeople.
· Always have some tracts in your pocket, purse, and glove compartment.
· Place a tract rack in your church. Obtain permission to place tract racks in hospitals, rest homes, bus stations, prisons, etc.
· Give tracts to children in VBS and Sunday school and on special days like Halloween and Valentine’s Day.
· Use a Scripture calendar card as a business card with your personal imprint or imprinted with your church’s address and schedule.
Did You Know?.....DSL
(Digital Subscriber Line) internet service can sometimes interrupt home
If you have an improperly wired alarm system on your house, DSL internet service may prevent an alarm system from transmitting alarm signals to the monitoring station.
A monitored alarm system that uses the telephone line to communicate with a central monitoring station may have a compatibility problem with DSL high speed internet service and can prevent the system from operating properly. Though there may not be any indication of a problem, the security alarm panel may fail to notify the monitoring service during a break-in /fire/medical emergency because of interference from the DSL service. The problem can be fixed by using a special filter. If you have DSL internet service and a monitored central alarm system you should contact your alarm service for options to remedy this potentially hazardous issue.
