is the perfect time to share Christ's life, death and resurrection to a world seeking truth. How can you take this opportunity to impact lostness in your community?

There are a number of ways North Carolina Baptists can be intentional in their disciple-making efforts during this season. This Web page offers various resources for churches including a full Easter resources page which hosts a variety of videos, tools and reference materials.

Preach Evangelistic Sermons

Prepare to preach an evangelistic sermon. Aim for those who may be attending who have never heard the truth of the message of Easter and the hope of Jesus Christ through his resurrection.

Invite a Friend

Take the time leading up to Easter to encourage the congregation to invite an unreached friend to church. You can use the downloadable postcard template on the resources page to print several handouts for your community. The postcard can also be used to invite someone to church whom God has placed on your heart.

Build a Relationship

Use Easter as your first opportunity to start a relationship with an unreached friend, but don't stop there. Building a relationship with someone is key to developing trust and a trustworthy relationship opens the door for sharing your life and faith. There are several video examples of how other North Carolina Baptists are building relationships available on our resources page. Share them with your church prior to Easter to inspire members to build relationships in their neighborhood.

Suppport Annie Armstrong

All of the money given to support the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering will be transformed into North American Mission Board missionary salaries and ministry supplies. This is an opportunity for you to be directly involved with North American Mission Board missionary support, and the supplies purchased through your generous donations will help others hear the message of Christ.
