A new outreach for Progress Baptist Church has been to notify new movers in the WNC region about our church and invite them to visit with us. In addition to a “welcome” card, our members have followed up with personal notes and at times, visits. This past Wednesday evening, our church family took 200 new names. Each of these have already received the first card that welcomes them to our area. We are praying for these families by name and asking God to bless them and work in their lives for His glory. Each of them will also receive a follow up card with a personal invitation to the church, an offer to receive a Bible, and an opportunity to enroll in a Bible study course. In addition, the church family has been encouraged to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and to visit as many of these folks as possible.
The most important thing we can do for anyone who does not know the Lord is to pray. Our church desires to bear fruit “that remains” (John 15:16). Let’s join our hearts together for our region and ask Him to give us a harvest of souls.
