Berryville Baptists engage in Jerusalem Priority Outreach

Friday, October 3, 2008

BERRYVILLE -- First Baptist Church, 510 E. Madison, Berryville, is engaging in the Jerusalem Priority Outreach, an emphasis program designed to enable the church to reach individuals and families in the community with the news that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His church is a powerfully positive life-changing relationship.

Each Sunday morning in October, Pastor Steve Westbrook is preaching messages focused on helping hearers understand the simple Bible truth of personal relationship with Christ: "When Religion Fails" on Oct. 5; "When Guilt Won't Go Away" on Oct. 12; "When There's No Way Out" on Oct. 19; and "When You Need a Friend" on Oct. 26.

Neighborhood visitation teams will be making personal contacts in the community providing encouragement and sharing information with individuals and families.

Special fellowship and outreach activities have been planned, including a "Great Prayer Walk" on Oct. 4; a free car wash on Oct. 11 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at the church, limited to the first 50 cars; and a Harvest Festival at the church property on Oct. 21 with games, activities and snacks form 5 to 9 p.m.

Said Westbrook, "The last Sunday morning of October we invite all our friends in Berryville to come at 9:30 for Sunday School or 10:30 for worship, to enjoy our Friend Sunday Service as we celerbate the life of the greatest friend of all, Jesus Christ."
