Once a month we have reserved a booth at the Torrance Farmer's Market on Saturday to pass out free water bottles with Nova's information to all who are shopping there. This will give us the opportunity to share about Nova and invite people to come worship with us on a Sunday!
Update (July 23, 2019)
The Nova Farmers Market Ministry is a simple outreach ministry seeking to connect people at the Market with Christ. One Saturday morning a month, members from Nova set up a tent, table and banner at the Torrance Farmers Market and seek to initiate conversations with anyone and everyone who walks by; recently we have been offering people some small gift to open conversation with them, either a bottle of water or a reusable sports bottle.
We have seen God work in many ways as He has opened hundreds of opportunities to speak to people through this venue. Principally, we have seen God work in all of our members as we overcome our fear to speak to and reach out to people with love. Since most of us do not approach people we don't know and attempt to speak with them, this high contact ministry stretches our faith and our comfort level.
But we have also seen God working through our encounters with people at the market, as well. We have been able to pray for people who are sick or going through transitions in their lives. We have had people pray for us and our work! Also, we are able to tell people about our church and been able to guide them to our community on Sunday to learn more about Christ.
Please keep the Farmers Market Ministry in your prayers, for great opportunities to share Jesus through our words and actions. Pray for boldness and confidence in God's guidance and equipping through His Spirit. If you would like to participate some Saturday, please contact either Garrett Koch at firstname.lastname@example.org or Byron Jung at email@example.com.
