Ice Cream Evangelism

The last couple of weeks have been unseasonably warm here in the Pacific Northwest, and last Sunday was especially hot.

Then they heard that magical sound coming down the street: the distinctive chimes of the ice cream truck. Thinking […]

My problem was that when we moved into a new facility earlier this year, the screen on the back wall was too small for me to read from the stage, and the congregation’s screen is almost directly overhead.

3 Barriers to Your Church’s Outreach Success
