Seeing your home and neighborhood as a mission field

November 5, 2019

Do families in your congregation see their homes or neighborhoods as a mission field? While communities are growing around our churches, attendance on Sunday mornings is suffering. Why is this happening? Could it be that parents are not equipped to engage their homes and communities with the gospel?

In Acts 2, the Bible records Peter’s brilliant sermon on the day of Pentecost. As he was speaking, the Holy Spirit moved in the hearts of those who were listening. They anxiously pleaded with Peter, “What must we do to be saved?” Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized.”

As the people confessed and were baptized, the Lord graciously gave them the gift of the Holy Spirit. But Peter did not stop there. He let them know that salvation and the Holy Spirit wasn’t only for them but for their children and for all people (v. 39).

In following the command of the New Testament, the Acts 2:39 Missional Families Resource is intended to equip and encourage families to be missional in their homes and neighborhoods.

This study is designed to help parents discover new ways to be intentional in fulfilling the Great Commission at home and in their communities.

This seven week, easy to use study is ideal for both Sunday School and small group settings.

Join us on the journey to equip parents to live a missional Acts 2:39 lifestyle.
