NOTE THIS: The Mount Juliet congregation is putting a whole new spin on their gospel meeting effort. They have put together a program called 12questions that looks like it will provide outstanding outreach opportunities. They created a simple webside, bought advertising on several local advertising places, had bumper stickers made up and bought some billboards. Each of the ads only had the website on it: 12QUESTIONS.NET. They invited people to submit questions about God and His Word. They got over 1,000! NOW, NEXT week Sunday-Wednesday they will have events around the questions asked. Each evening they will have 3 sessions - two informal, one formal. They will bring in a different man each night to facilitate - Kirk Brother, Ralph Gilmore, Kyle Butt and David Shannon are those men. Go to the website to see how they grouped it all. AND you can also log in an participate! Looks great - you might want to do something similar - I'm sure they won't mind you stealing their bit for the Lord's Work!
