“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Through 2017 we will be hosting some intentional outreach sessions to help us grow in sharing the love of Jesus with the city of Den Haag. The idea of these sessions is to grow in and share “faith, hope, and love.” 1 Corinthians 13 is a well known scripture for weddings. While this passage gives us an accurate description of true love, Paul is defining spiritual gifts and their key foundation of love. He says “if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” Spiritual gifts are for the building up and encouraging of the church, but we also see Jesus using prophecy in John 4 to display his love to the Woman of Samaria.

We want to invite you to join us for some Thursday evening and/or some Saturday morning outreach sessions through 2017. Using the foundations of “faith, hope and love” these sessions will involve a brief time of training and equipping, prayer and worship, then some outreach on the streets of Den Haag. During each session we’ll introduce a different evangelistic tool that people can use as they seek to share the love of Jesus with the people of Den Haag. We’ll always finish these sessions with a debrief, encouraging each other in our steps of faith, and praying for those we have met. We have given these intentional outreach sessions the name POTS, short for ‘Prayer On The Streets’.

Here is a the dates we’ll be meeting through 2017:

  • – March Thursday 23rd
  • – April Saturday 15th
  • – May Thursday 4th, Saturday 27th

Here and some examples of some evangelistic outreach tools we may use:

  • – The Miracle Question “If God could do one miracle for you today, what would it be?”
  • – Healing On The Streets. Set up a prayer station and offer healing prayer for people
  • – Prophetic: 1) Treasure Hunting, asking God for clues on who to speak to. 2) Share simple prophetic encouragements
  • – Random acts of kindness. Look for simple ways to display God’s love by generous random acts of kindness
  • – Church invitation. Using invitation to invite people to key church events e.g. Sundays, Easter and Christmas
