North Jersey Christians
Oftentimes, people want to share their Christian faith with other people...but have no clue on how to do it, without seeming, well, insane. Some people need a refresher on what the "mere essentials" of the Faith contain...but either don't have the time (or money) to go to a class.|
Of course, if I'm typing this, I've got some sort of solution...at least for people in the NYC area.
The Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) is Christian Life and Witness Courses in the greater New York/New Jersey metro area. The courses are FREE and there are no expectations for assisting at the Crusade. What's important, in their mind, is that people who are on-fire with the Gospel reach others with the saving message of Jesus Christ.
You can download a schedule here. The BGEA tried to make it so if you miss one class, you can make it up at a different location on a different day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE READ BEFORE RESPONDING!
This is an announcement, not an all-out endorsement of Evangelical Christianity. I'll, most likely, be saying the Rosary after I type this...so that's gotta tell you something. My home parish, which is helping with the Crusade, is a catholic parish. I will not be mistaken for a free-churcher any time soon. However, in this day where the only "Jesus" people know is a media-designed caricature, I think it's worth working together with all my Christian brothers and sisters—more now than ever. So, if you need to say "well, I don't agree with him/the Crusade/dogs because of X," ignore this message, peace be with you, etc.
I'll be attending, most likely, at the nondenominal church in Montclair...so there is a meet-up opportunity to boot.
And thank you for your prayers...they are such a relief.
