Evangelism at House of Prayer

”…Growing our membership in love and care”

Evangelism is a strong spirit that reaches out to God’s community to share and grow in numbers.

The Evangelism Ministry Team strives to welcome new members to our church, as well as to extend hospitality to our current church family. No one group in the congregation can be responsible for such a large task –every member of the congregation is called to help achieve this. Since God has commissioned us to make disciples of all people, what better way than to begin within the walls of our own church.
Are you a guest and interested in joining House of Prayer?
Do you know someone who would like to join our congregation?
‘Have you been attending HoP for a while and have yet to become a member?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, mark Sunday, May 15, on your calendar!
We will be hosting a New Member Orientation and Lunch starting at 12:30 pm in
Fellowship Hall.

Please indicate on the yellow bulletin insert if you will be attending or contact Pastor Ben at bsandin@hoplc.org if you have questions about the orientation or membership at House of Prayer.


Some of the responsibilites and opportunities for evangelism undertaken by the EvMT are accomplished by providing:

• Sunday and Holiday service greeters at each door
• Information booth staffed to answer questions
• New member packets kept available for interested visitors
• Welcome letters mailed to new area residents
• Small thank-you gifts for visitors and follow-up postcards
• Flyers delivered to area homes promoting upcoming events
• New member classes with sponsors matched to each family
• Pictorial directory updates to help members connect
• Annual GuideBook
• “Tell Us” inserts in Sunday bulletins for requesting information, prayers, home visits, etc.
• Little Library for the neighborhood (coming soon!)
• Sunshine greeting cards to recognize member birthdays, age 80 and better, and wedding anniversaries 50 years and more.

If you would like to join us in this ministry, please contact Paula Kiehl or the office.
