Hey Willow Point!
If I have heard one thing over and over again since I have been here is that people don’t know who Willow Point people are and if they did, more people would want to come. This is an opportunity for you to help tell who Willow Point really is. On Sunday March 20th we will be doing Cardboard Testimonies. We would like for each of you to write a cardboard testimony like in the video below. We have included some examples of ideas that might be helpful to tell others what Jesus has done in your life.
- We are providing the cardboard.
- We are providing the markers.
- We need you to provide the testimony.
- It will be video recorded so you can show it to your friends and family when you are inviting them to church.
- This Sunday March 6th and the next March 13th we will make the signs. Cardboard and markers will be available for you in the choir room, so you can design your testimony.
- Please be prayerful about this.
- We really need around 40 people committed to doing this.
Please plan on sharing something big that God has done in your life with a simple piece of cardboard so we can reach more people who are going through things that God has already brought you through.
Here are two video examples and a list of example testimonies. Tell your story, but here are some of the kinds of things people have done.
