Evangelism & Discipleship
CRCSJ Summer Rallies
One of our newer events, we hope these church-picnic style gatherings quickly become a favorite tradition, with food, games, crafts, laughter, music, worship, & more! First of all, gathering as a church family builds our relationships with one another so we can more fully support and encourage each other in our faith and in life. Secondly, inviting others to church can be challenging, even when you feel God's Spirit nudging you, and our rallies provide a casual, low-pressure setting for inviting friends and family who may be interested in learning more about our church. Finally, IT'S FUN! Plus we’ll be handing out prizes for our summertime Active Faith Bingo. (You even get to mark off a bingo square just for attending a rally, or 2 squares if you volunteer to help!)
We're calling on our church family to come to the 2 rallies this summer AND invite friends, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and family to these evening of food, fun, fellowship, and worship. Wednesdays, July 13 and August 10, 6:00 - 9:00 PM outside on the church lawn and parking lot. Do join us!
Parables in the Park
Kids and their adults are encouraged join us in exploring the area parks while hearing a Bible story and sharing a small snack and prayer time together. This is another great opportunity to invite others and to build and develop stronger relationships with those who might be seeking to know more about Christ. See our Children's Ministries page for more information and a schedule.
These are helpful with explaining the good news of Jesus, learning how to lead into conversations with people who don't know Christ, and praying for people in your life who don't know the Lord. And they may help you to grow in your own understanding of the gospel, too!

These are just some of the avenues available at our church for pursuing growth in the faith.

Maginify the Lord Menu
A "menu" created to serve our continual walk of faith, it has Scriptures associated with various sins of commission (things we shouldn't be doing but are) and sins of omission (things we should be doing but are not). Magnify the Lord Menu.pdf
Here you'll find audios of sermons and Sunday School classes available for download. We also have CDs of past sermons and sermon series in the church library. Visit our Sermons Page.
Getting plugged in to a class is also helpful in strengthening your faith walk. We typically offer two classes for adults, classes for ages 3 1/2 - 12th grade, and an Early Adult class. Visit our Education Page for details.
