The E Word

Therefore go and make disciples of


all naons, bapzing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching

them to obey everything I have
commanded you. And surely I am
with you

always, to the very end of
the age. Mahew 28:19-20
The E word seems to have re-
placed sex and money as That
Which Must Not Be Named in our
mainline churches. (Martha Grace
Reese, author of Unbinding the Gos-
pel) The E word is evangelism.
Evangelism is about sharing our
faith. It is about showing a hungry
person where to get bread. Evan-
gelism is telling the Good News.
The Gospel is the Good News
revealed to us through the birth,
life, death, resurrecon and Second
Coming of Jesus Christ. This Good
news is the
news that
makes all of
our stories
possible. We
have a story
to tell and
Gods story is
ever interwo-
ven with our story.
Learning the scriptures of the
Bible is important. Learning the sto-
ries of the people of the Bible is im-
portant. But it should not stop
there. The Bible is not yet authori-
tave to non-believers. Our story,
interwoven with Gods story is how
we are able to preach the Gospel
in a real and meaningful way. Ac-
cepng Christ into our lives is trans-
formave. Having a relaonship

E WORD (connued from front page)
with Christ is real and alive. When
we can express out loud what a
dierence Jesus has made in our life
then we can lead others to under-
stand the importance and the joy of
coming to Christ.
Whether you have been a Chris-
an for a short while or many dec-
ades there was a path and a process.
Think back over your faith journey.
Think about how you came to know
Christ the people who shared, the
events that pointed you to and the
things that impacted you. Think
about how you understood God
when you rst believed and how you
have grown. A vivid relaonship
with God lies at the heart of real
evangelism. Martha Reese.
If you have ever been afraid of
the E word evangelism - then I
am speaking directly to you. If you
have ever felt that there should be
something more than accepng
Christ for yourself and then sing
down, then I am speaking directly to
you. If you have ever wanted to
learn how to arculate your faith,
then I am speaking directly to you.
Make a dierence not only in your
church but in Gods kingdom.
Give value to your experience of
coming to Christ. Understand the
transformaon that occurred in your
life when you came to faith in Christ
and as you grew. Help others to
know the power that they too have
and help them to grow by sharing
your experiences. This can happen
during a WATTS class beginning Sep-
tember 4
th
.
WATTS is our family style dinner,
our Bible Study and events night
held on Wednesdays. During WATTS
this fall I will facilitate a class using
the text, Unbinding the Gospel by
Martha Grace Reese. I would love to
have you join me on a journey to
move us from complacency to com-
fort when it comes to the E word.
The Great Commission, coming out
of Mahew 28:19-20, is for all of us.

Peace and blessings,
Pastor Cheryl

At Vacaon Bible School, the children who aended learned that there is an easy way for
even the youngest among us to share the love of Christ in our community. As part of the
marketplace in Athens during VBS, the children were able to visit the Agape shop to
learn new ways to serve. Ray Trues-
dell of the Tyler Street Community
Service Outreach was the shop-
keeper. The children learned about
children in need in our neighbor-
hood and how to help them. By the
end of the week, 300 school supply
packs were ready to go and the
children had donated $270 to de-
fray the cost of supplies!
