On March 24th, WSBC will canvass 6 neighborhoods in Jonesboro to simply ask “Will you join us at WSBC for Easter Sunday?” The best part about this process is that none of us can reach a neighborhood alone! We need every part of the body of Christ here at Walnut Street to play a part in accomplishing our goal.
First, we NEED prayer. We have seen God do INCREDIBLE works through the prayers of His people and we don’t want to stop asking for His guidance, wisdom, and favor within the life of our city, so we MUST pray. Pray that God will use us to impact Jonesboro. Pray for those that may have never been invited to church.
Second, we need volunteers. We aren’t asking for arms or legs, we are just asking for you and your family, kids included, to give 2 hours, 10:00 am-12:00 pm, on Saturday March 24th, to join a neighborhood group and ride, walk, jump, skip or cartwheel down a few streets handing out flyers, smiling and having fun together while asking folks to join us for Worship on Easter Sunday morning. Each neighborhood will have a Neighborhood Captain who will coordinate their volunteers and plan how their specific neighborhood is canvassed.
That morning will start at Walnut Street with an Easter/Resurrection egg hunt at 9:00 am, where the kids will have a chance to hunt for eggs and hear the Resurrection eggs explained. Then we will depart and meet at our respective neighborhoods to invite our friends, neighbors and co-workers to Easter morning services.
We are asking everyone who wants to be involved to sign-up below. After you sign up, your neighborhood captain will contact you with specific details. In the meantime, PRAY!! If you have a preference for one of the six neighborhoods we are canvassing, please mark that on the form when you sign up, otherwise, we will make sure that everyone is evenly distributed.
