May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
This Easter, we want to share the HOPE of Jesus to everyone! As Christ-followers, Jesus has changed our lives, and we now know the HOPE that comes from a relationship with Him. Easter is an opportunity to share with our community about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how through His sacrifice, we can have relationship with God and ever-lasting life.
More specifically, we want to share this GOOD NEWS with our neighbours! We all have neighbours: some we know well and share life with, some we have never met, and some that we give a casual wave to as we walk to and from our cars to our houses. Regardless of your current status with your neighbour, we believe that God wants to use you to share the Gospel with them!
This Easter season, Calvary wants to partner with YOU to share the Good News with YOUR neighbours. Below you will find ways to connect with your neighbours to share the Easter message with them, and invite them to watch one of our online Easter services. We want to put the tools in YOUR hands to bring the message of hope to those around you!
Neighbour HOPE Boxes
Here’s a really simple way to create a bridge to your neighbour to talk about Easter. We are making Hope Boxes with some great gift items and an invitation to join us online for our Easter services. You can pick up a box, prayerfully choose a neighbour, and share this gift with them. Our prayer is not only that they will tune in to hear about the hope of Jesus Christ, but that it will create a relational connection point for you and them.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Sign up for a Neighbour Hope Box
- Pick up a box at the church (Sun March 21, Tuesday March 23, or Sunday March 28)
- Choose one of your neighbours, and pray for them
- Write a thoughtful note in the blank card provided
- Bring the gift to your neighbour before the Easter weekend, and invite them to join us online for an Easter service
A Calvary mug, a notebook, Easter chocolate, tea, an invitation card to the Calvary Easter services, and a blank note card for you to write in.
What you write will likely depend on how well you know your neighbour and what’s going on in their lives. Don’t be afraid to let them know you are praying for them – and they may take you up on it and share about a need they would like prayer for!
Keep praying for them! Pray for their salvation, whatever is going on in their lives, and that God would give you opportunities to share the Gospel and to get to know them.
Keep building relationship! We all know the importance of relationship when it comes to sharing the Gospel. Even during this season of restrictions, you can be intentional about having genuine conversations (instead of just a wave and quick hello!).
