Our world hurts. People hurt each other and they hurt themselves.
The good news of the gospel is there is healing for every hurt available in Jesus and given out by his people, the church.
The challenge is how to connect the hurts and the help.
One of the most effective, but seldom used ways is with church and ministry business cards.
Here is how they can work
- On this site is a selection of FREE cards. Below are a few of them, at the end of the article all the ones available to download.
- Download the cards and then on the back put the resources available to help that your church has or that are available in your area.
- Give out the cards to people in your church to share as needed.
- BUT ALSO--what many churches have done is to make up the cards and then place them in restrooms at church, preferably INSIDE the stalls. When you do this, a person can pick up this small card (much better than a big brochure) and privately make use of the information on it. Churches that have done this have told me, "we replace the cards frequently."
Pray for the people who need the resources
You never know who might pick up a card. Perhaps someone traveling, someone visiting your church, perhaps a member living in pain or shame.
But the Lord knows and we can ask he direct people to the resources they need and that they will find healing and help.
