COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (WordNews.org) Aug. 7, 2012 – Outreach has put together what it calls a 30-Day Church Challenge to revive and transform churches.
The multimedia company, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, said the time is right for this product, citing a recent Barna survey in which three out of five church attendees said they could not remember something they learned at church the last time they attended. Of those surveyed, half had been in church within the last week.
Outreach said the 30-Day Church Challenge is aimed a bringing significance back to local congregations.
“By refocusing on the five main purposes of the church and living them out, congregations won’t just come to church; they will become the church,” said Eric Abel, vice president of marketing at Outreach, Inc. “Our communities are searching not just for a place to go, but for a community of faith. The church can become that powerful, inspirational and transformational Body of Christ.”
The 30-Day Church Challenge is a five-week series based on the biblical model of the church, found in the book of Acts, that will challenge church congregations to: devote themselves to authentic community, develop worship lifestyle, commit to spiritual growth, embrace stewardship and generous lifestyle, and engage in sharing God’s love and the Gospel with others.
Outreach provides customizable sermons with specific weekly challenge, video sermon illustrations, small-group DVD-based studies and other media support, graphics and planning tools.
