He said to Launch.

The Lord issued the challenge, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." He said that to Peter in Luke 5, and He's saying that to Good News Church right now. We've chosen to obey, and we're challenging you to launch out and let down your nets for a catch of souls. Partner with us in this outreach campaign.

How can you do that?

Pray. Open your heart to God in prayer. Let Him know that you are available to be used to reach others. Ask Him to direct you to those you can impact with the Good News.

Look. Lift up your eyes and see the people around you. Who is hurting? Who is searching? Who has suffered a loss? Who seems unfulfilled? Endeavor to see people with new eyes - with God's eyes - and to see those you have been overlooking.

Invite. Reaching out to others is as simple as asking someone to come to a service or event with you. Most people will eventually come - if you ask them.

Support. Get involved with the outreach events the church is doing during this campaign. Your help is needed in many areas so sign-up when your service is solicited. Support the outreaches financially. The Gospel is free, but it does cost money to pipe it to people.

Launch is part of fulfilling the vision of Good News Church:

We see a community of believers, strongly connected to God and to each other, empowered by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit to be able ministers, reaching their worlds and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

  1. I'm asking myself what it means to be strongly connected.
