He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” –Mark 16:15
The primary evangelistic goal of St. Paul’s is to fulfill the commandment of Jesus Christ, who told his followers to “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation” (Mark 15:16). We also value the three mission goals put forth by our Diocesan Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Jeffrey Lee: Grow the Church, Form the Faithful, Change the World.
On the basis of these, the evangelism team of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church goes out to proclaim the good news of Jesus with love and compassion to all in our community. We passionately believe in the importance of reaching out and connecting with people nearby, a practice that helps us to grow in Christ as well.
We strongly believe that our mission field, first and foremost, is our own backyard. One of our evangelistic activities takes us door-to-door in our community to convey the good news of Jesus and invite members of the neighborhood to special community events that help foster friendship and unity. These include our annual Easter egg hunt for children with gifts and lunch; six days of Vacation Bible School with free breakfast, lunch, and free school supplies; our Halloween Party for children; and the community Christmas celebration with fun, gifts, free lunch and much more.
We strongly encourage all parents and guardians to send their children to participate in such events. Our greatest goal is to serve the community by building a bridge between the congregation and the surrounding area so that we can make a difference in the lives of youth and adults alike, and create a safe and peaceful environment for everyone. Through evangelism, we make an effort to model today’s youth into tomorrow’s pillars of our society.
