Does the word evangelism disturb you? Does it bring to mind obnoxious people forcing their faith upon others? This week we begin a six week series on this difficult topic. We look at what Jesus said about being a witness, why it doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable topic, and why it might even be something that gives you great delight. Read the gospel of Mark and return next week to learn about the message of the witness.

If you’ve become a follower of Jesus but have never been baptized, we’d love to celebrate this step with you. Baptism is an outward sign of God’s grace and of your personal faith in Jesus. If you are interested in being baptized as a sign of your faith in Jesus, let us know today: http://menlo.church/baptism *Next baptisms will be May 15 at all campuses.

This summer in our Menlo Book Club we are reading The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations by Mary Schaller and John Crilly. We'll explore nine very simple practices that ANYONE can do to engage with others. We hope you'll join us to learn ways to share the hope we have in Jesus with people who have different beliefs. Go to http://menlo.church/bookclub for more information and how to sign up!

Church doesn't just happen on Sundays! Listen to our Menlo Midweek Podcast as we interview the preacher of the week. They take some deep dives into the sermon writing process, breakdown their sermon and let us in on a few things they kept out of their sermon. This is a great way to connect with us and grow your faith throughout the week. Check out the Menlo Church Sermon Podcast on Apple Podcasts today.
