Christian Reformed Home Missions wants to hear YOUR stories of transformation! Our theme for this Easter Sunday is Easter Changes Everything. We’ve put together bulletin covers, announcements, and a newsletter… now we need your help. We want you to share stories and examples of transformation in your life so we can share them to encourage others.
We want to hear from churches, church planters, and anyone who has a story of faithful transformation. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, post on our Facebook wall, send us a direct message, or tweet at us @HomeMissions. It can be short, long, just a moment of transformation, or a lifetime long.
Here’s an example of a story of transformation in one of our churches:
“After much deliberation and prayer, members at Water’s Edge church in Birch Bay, WA decided to keep their church open and to call Jim Carberry as a temporary pastor. Almost five years later, he is still there and Water’s Edge has grown exponentially from their original congregation of 15.
On a door-to-door food drive, Jim and the volunteers knocked on Katy’s door, a single mother of three. Despite having trouble putting food on the table, Katy felt God’s call and graciously contributed to the food drive. Jim invited her to church that Sunday.
Over the following months, Katy and her children became faithful attendees at Water’s Edge and invited next-door neighbors to attend with them. God continued to work through this community connection, and after a year and a half, Katy and two other mothers and four of their children were all baptized and made professions of faith.”
Everyone has a story, we want to share yours. Read more at crhm.org/easter
