Â Â Â Â Â Why Â 3000 Â lives? Â Â On Â the Â day Â of Â Pentecost, Â Je-Â Â Do Â you Â want Â to Â be Â part Â of Â something Â that Â will Â make Â a Â lasting Â difference Â for Â eternity? Â Â It Â is Â a Â God-Â sus Â sent Â the Â Holy Â Spirit Â to Â fuel Â the Â church. Â Â Those Â who Â sized Â goal, Â a Â goal Â so Â big Â that Â we Â cannot Â possibly Â reach Â DFFHSWHG3HWHUÂśVPHVVDJHZHUHEDSWL]HGDQGDERXW it Â unless Â God Â steps Â in. Â Â 40 Â days Â of Â prayer Â + Â 50 Â days Â of Â ZHUHDGGHGWRWKHFKXUFKÂśVQXPEHUWKDWGD\$FWV evangelism Â = Â a Â 90-Âday Â investment Â in Â 3000 Â lives Â in Â the Â 2:41). Â Â In Â 2010, Â Holston Â Conference. Â Our Â goal Â as Â a Â conference Â is Â to Â celebrate Â Pente-Â God Â can Â change Â cost Â (May Â 23) Â with Â 3000 Â baptisms. Â Â This Â is Â an Â average Â another Â 3000 Â lives Â across Â Hol-Â RIVRXOVIRUHDFKRI+ROVWRQÂśVFKXUFKHV,Q ston. Â Â But Â this Â 90 stead Â of Â 3 Â or Â 4 Â professions Â of Â faith Â in Â Christ, Â do Â you Â believe Â that Â God Â can Â bring Â 10 Â or Â more Â new Â souls Â into Â -Âday Â investment Â starts Â with Â us Â His Â kingdom Â at Â Trinity? Â Â Jesus Â fasted Â and Â prayed Â for Â 40 Â days Â in Â the Â wil-Â getting Â down Â on Â our Â knees. Â derness Â where Â he Â was Â tempted, Â so Â we Â are Â asked Â to Â . Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â spend Â 40 Â days Â seeking Â God Â in Â prayer Â and Â fasting Â in Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Blessings, Â some Â form. Â Â Each Â week Â during Â Lent, Â devotional Â book-Â Â lets Â will Â be Â given Â out Â at Â worship Â to Â guide Â our Â prayers Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Pastor Â David Â for Â the Â next Â 7 Â days Â so Â we Â will Â be Â praying Â in Â agree-Â ment. Â Â Fasting Â can Â be Â from Â food Â or Â from Â TV Â or Â the Â Â Internet. Â Â The Â goal Â is Â for Â us Â to Â give Â up Â something Â meaningful Â and Â use Â that Â time Â to Â pray Â instead. Â Â After Â 40 Â days Â of Â prayer Â and Â fasting, Â we Â will Â spend Â the Â next Â 50 Â days Â seeking Â to Â connect Â unchurched Â folks Â with Â Jesus. Â Â From Â Easter Â (April Â 4) Â to Â Pentecost Â (May Â 23), Â during Â these Â 50 Â days Â each Â congregation Â in Â Holston Â is Â asked Â to Â carry Â out Â an Â intentional Â plan Â to Â in-Â vite Â people Â to Â church. Â Â Every Â adult, Â youth, Â and Â child Â ZLOOEHQHHGHGWRKHOSÂłRIIHU&KULVWÂ´WRVRPHRQHWKH\ know. Â Â A Â recent Â study Â shows Â that Â 8 Â out Â of Â 10 Â people Â ZKRGRQÂśWJRWRFKXUFKVDLGWKH\ZRXOGFRQVLGHUDW tending Â if Â someone Â they Â know Â and Â trust Â invited Â them. Â Â If Â you Â invite Â a Â Friend, Â Relative, Â Acquaintance, Â or Â Neighbor Â to Â church Â and Â promise Â to Â meet Â them Â at Â the Â door Â and Â sit Â with Â them, Â they Â will Â be Â far Â more Â likely Â to Â attend. Â (Even Â if Â they Â say Â no Â this Â time, Â the Â seed Â you Â planted Â may Â bear Â fruit Â the Â next Â time Â someone Â comes Â along Â and Â asks Â them.) Â Â
