Last Sunday was AMAZING! It was such an overwhelming day as Port City Church New Bern gathered for the very first time. During the message I asked everyone to think of one person who they had influence with and was not currently walking with God. I challenged everyone to commit to praying for that one person and to get intentional about reaching them and helping them walk with God.
So, WHO IS YOUR ONE? Who is the one person that you are praying for and intentionally investing in relationally? Now, don’t misunderstand me-this challenge is not about making someone your personal “Evangelism Project.” No, it’s about building a relationship with one person-a relationship that has space for questions, doubt, authenticity, and faith: a relationship that will change their life and yours.
Here’s a crazy idea: How about inviting that person to church this Sunday? You may be surprised…they just may come. But you’ll never know unless you make “the ask.”
So, give it a shot. Invite that one person who God has put on your radar. Offer to pick them up and bring them to church-perhaps buy them breakfast beforehand, or lunch afterwards. Or treat them to an amazing cup of coffee @ PC3 New Bern…it’s on us! Remember, it starts with one. One person, reaching another person and helping them walk with God.
Give it a try! Make the ask. There is a seat waiting!
This is what we are called to do. Be a light to someone else
