Conceptualizing Projects for Faith Hope and Love Week 2016

KNA/BTNA ( communities midtown surrounding area ) meeting on conceptualizing different projects for Faith Hope and Love Week. It’s coming together! Merlin shared his project to teach simple evangelism and then outreach! Different positions were explored for each person to create on their team. We had community leaders, police officers, a librarian, a Red Cross representative, and pastors representing churches. FHL believes every Christian needs to learn how to bring others to Christ. Merlin will be assisting with this group to help them press into God’s Kingdom to advance in this area.

God is putting teams together in different ways to reach out to neighborhood associations, government, churches and businesses.

Contact FHL if you or a church group wants to plan a project for FHL Week 2016
