On Saturday March 11, 2017 we and a team arrived on Water Street at about 8:30 am to coordinate the outreach. There were thousands of people who arrived in their green disguise and we too took to dressing up just to fit into the crowd! We as Christians do no celebrate a Pagan Holiday of Catholicism, however Paul said said this to the church in (1 Corinthians 9:19) “For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;”
Basically we need to humble ourselves where we can reach the lost and give them the truth of the gospel message. We passed out million dollar St. Patrick’s bills, and they were a big hit! We passed out close to 8000 tracts that day and we were so blessed to have a team help!
The announcers announce each year that we are passing out million dollar bills to the crowd, so they know to expect that from us. We are the only outreach team to do that, but others were passing out flyers to attend their church. One thing about our church and our Pastor, we pray for God to give the increase or decrease and He is faithful to purge out the bad and replace with like minded saints. We hope you will contact us and let us know if you would like to join our outreach for next year. This time next year we may be in the parade and pass out the Ten Commandment coins! Lord willing we shall see by then!
