Everyone Gathering means you don’t skip church!
There is value in coming and spending time together as a family of Christ! When we come together, we learn about the Case for Grace on Sundays and Wednesdays. We encourage one another. We cry with one another. We laugh with one another! We need each other on this journey called life!
Everyone Grouping …That means doing life together in LifeGroups!
You are a better Christian when you do life together in small groups with other believers. It was Jesus who gave us the perfect model to help lead unbelievers to Him. LifeGroups give us accountability, support, and encouragement with other believers. Click here to learn how to sign up. There you will find out how to join a LifeGroup or become a LifeGroup leader.
Everyone Giving! That’s Pushing God to the front of the line in your giving.
Sunday, October 7 is All Tithe Sunday and we need everyone bringing your tithe to worship. And then go above and beyond with your PUSH Offering for the rest of the year.
And Everyone Going! That’s sharing the Gospel in your everyday life!
All year long we have focused on Celebrating Grace and there’s still room for your PlusOne to be a part of the family of faith. We are all commanded to go and share the Good news of salvation with the world. You can share no matter how long you’ve been a part of the family of faith. Got questions on how to do that?

What is PlusOne?
Adding One to the Kingdom
You. Grow. Here.
At Saint Mark we believe you grow in learning, serving, and giving.
All year we have been learning more about how God has called each of us to Celebrate Grace by going out and communicating the Gospel.
God’s Word Says …
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], …”
The next step in our evolution of growth is showing our commitment to Christ by bringing someone else to the faith. It’s what we are calling PlusOne – Communicating the Gospel
- This pivotal moment in our ministry will arm you with the knowledge to share with the unsaved what you’ve learned about the Gospel.
- It will challenge you to invite family, friends, and neighbors to grow with you in the knowledge of the Gospel.
- And it will mobilize all of us to add one more to the body of Christ in the name of the Gospel.
Let’s all become fishers of men!
Make the iCAP Commitment
Know that you are called to share the Gospel as you go through your daily life. Go with the intent to get souls saved.
Acts 20:17-24 (ESV)
God will empower you to share the Gospel when the time is right. Understand that you are not going in your own power, but the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (ESV)
Open yourself up to be used by God to share the Gospel.
Isaiah 6:1-3 (ESV)
Pray about opportunities to share the Gospel with others.
Colossians 4:2-4 (ESV)
Share what you believe.
1. Everybody is guilty of sin.
2. God loved me so much He sent Jesus as a substitute for my sins.
3. Jesus carried my sins to the cross and died to set me free from sin.
4. Three days later, God raised Him from the dead conquering sin for good.
5. One day, Jesus is coming back again to take me to heaven.
Because I believe this, I know my soul is safe for eternity!
How do you start a conversation about the Gospel?
1. Start with building a relationship with that person. If its family or a friend you already a type of relationship, but if it is a stranger find some common ground for the conversation.
2. Ask probing questions without using the words saved and Jesus. You want to know what they believe without telling them what you want to hear.
“You know with all of the crazy things going on in the world, if you were to die today, would you go to heaven?”
If they say yes, ask why?
And if they respond with ANYTHING BESIDES A BELIEF IN JESUS—They don’t understand the gospel!
You have an opportunity to now share it!
If they say no, they wouldn’t go to heaven, you can still share the gospel!
When your PlusOne wants to know more.
1. Invite them to Steps to Growth class and contact Pastor Brodes to find out more.
2. Invite them to attend church with you and register them as your guest.
3. Continue to connect with them on their journey to accepting Christ.
