At popular request we will be having another Q&A with CRUst like the one we had in the Fall. Over the next week we will be accepting questions for this event. There are three way for you to submit questions: send a direct message to a member of servant team, write down a question on the slips of paper that will be passed out at Cru large group next week or fill out the google form below with your question. The last two options can be anonymous if you choose them to be. Feel free to submit as many questions as you like and we will answer as many as we can! The Q&A will be held on February 15th at large group.
This semester those who are interested will be memorizing a bible passage together. The Lord encourages us to hide scripture in our hearts and this is one way we can do that and work together so we can all keep each other accountable. Details on exactly how this will pan out and if there will be incentives for memorizing will be announced at coming large groups. If you have a suggestion on what passage you think we should memorize let a member of servant team know by February 15. There will be a poll posted in the group me after that so people can choose which passage they would like us to memorize. Memorization will beginning February 22nd.
You may be wondering… what is evangelism? Evangelism means sharing our faith with other and explaining to them the good news and great joy that we have because of Jesus Christ. This semester at cru we are making a special effort to do more small scale evangelism like tabling and street evangelism. In light of that we are going to have Evangelism Training on Tuesday the 13th (instead of bible study) at the cru house. Karen or Tommy Waters will be leading the event and training us in several different evangelism method such as solarium, perspective cards, the knowing God personally books, quests surveys, ect. If you don’t know any of those no worries we’ll be explaining all of them that night and if you’re already and evangelism expert you can still come! You’re sure to still learn something new and you can use your experience to offer suggestions to those of us who are newer at evangelizing.
Cookie for a Prayer is our yearly post Valentine ’s Day outreach! Each year we package out over 200 hundred cookies and hand them out on Livingston campus from 12-6 the day after Valentine’s Day which is Thursday February 15th. When we give people a cookie we ask them to write down something we can pray for them about or something in the world they want prayed about. This is a great way for us to serve our community by cheering up people’s day with a cookie and supporting them in prayer! Also it is a great opportunity to implement some of the evangelism training we will be having the Tuesday before. Come help us as we bake, pack and pray over the cookies the Sunday before (February 11th) at 7:30pm in Newell 288. Talk to servant team for more info.
