Church Letter Writing Success Mini Course – Tip 13 of 13
It is recommended you use all 13 Tips in your Ezine

Our thirteenth and final lesson in “13 Tips For Church Letter
Writing Success” will build off the letter “S” in our Church
Letters acrostic.

So far, we have looked at the following:
C – Be Clear
H – Be Hopeful
U – Be Understanding
R – Be Responsive
C – Be Consistent
H – Be Helpful

L – Be “Letter-Ready”
E – Be Evangelistic
T – Be Tactful
T – Be Timely
E – Be Energetic
R – Be Right

Today, we will take a look at:

S – Be Scriptural
  In writing Church Letters it is always of great benefit to
share a particular passage of scripture that may be applicable
to their situation at the time.  In a very difficult
circumstance, you can share that “God works all things
together for good…”, or “weeping may endure for the night,
but joy comes in the morning”. 

Simply be aware of the situation, and mindful of any scriptures
that will provide hope or healing, and encouragement.

Take a few moments to listen for the prompting of the Holy Spirit
as you determine what scripture to place in the letter.  As
Ministry leaders, we must STILL believe God speaks to our hearts
today as we assist others in the journey to heaven.

  Below is your thirteenth complimentary letter which you may
modify and use in your own church communications.

Letter to Church – Raising Missions Awareness

Jesus said in: Mark 16:15 – “Go into all the world and preach the
good news to all creation.”

Those words spoken by the Lord are at the heart of our desire to
share the Gospel with the world through our Missions giving here at
First Christian Church.  Sadly, the Great Commission has become for
many people the “Great Omission”, as they have failed to realize
the supreme importance Jesus placed on reaching the lost.

Remarkably, there are still many people around this world that have
not yet heard the name of Jesus, and the freedom He offers through
a life surrendered to Him. The Bible also tells us: Luke 19:10 –
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” We are
compelled to seek out those who are lost, and impart to them the
Gospel message…or the Good News!

We here at First Christian Church want to be sure we are doing our
part, and while we have been actively involved in supporting
Missions both here and abroad, we believe that we must increase in
this vital area.  We also believe that God will greatly bless a
“missions-minded” church and in turn will supply for the needs as
we partner with Him in reaching the Lost through our giving of
“time, talent, and treasure”.

In the next few weeks and months, you will hear more about the
importance of Missions, and we will also be offering special
opportunities to become involved.  While we all may not be able to
“go” physically, we can “go” in some way, whether it be in the area
of finances, letter writing, prayers, or other avenues of ministry.

For now, would you begin to prayerfully consider what God might be
saying to you regarding Missions?  Missions IS the heart of God,
and He also asks that we pray to Him to send forth laborers. 
Matthew 9:38 – Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out
workers into his harvest field.” Did you know that when a
Missionary stands in our pulpit to share his or her vision, they
are an ANSWER to prayer?

Henry Martyn wrote the following: “The Spirit of Christ is the
spirit of missions, and the nearer we get to him, the more
intensely missionary we must become.”

Thank you for praying and believing with us here at First Christian
Church.

In Christ,
Rev. John Doe
