Sharing Month

Sharing Month – May 2022

Help 65,000 people find Jesus

This May, join the Division-wide movement to share Step Beyond with your community.

Step Beyond is a modernised version of Steps To Christ, inviting readers to discover Jesus and learn to grow their faith in Him. 

Churches and Conferences have invested in 65,000 copies of Step Beyond which they will receive in April. Contact your nearest participating Church or Conference to get involved.

Suggested introduction for sharing the Step Beyond book:

Introduction

Here is a special gift (hand book over).  It helped me experience happiness and a forever friendship with Jesus.

Suggested introduction for sharing Step Beyond and a health book in your community:

Introduction – Full version

Hello, how are you today? My name is […] from your local […] Adventist church / Pathfinder club. Today we are offering a free cookbook from one of Australia’s leading dietitians helping with lifestyle diseases. This one explores the spiritual journey to lasting happiness. (hand books over with health book on the top.) Have a fantastic day! 

Introduction – Basic version

Hello, how are you today? My name is […] from your local […] Adventist church / Pathfinder club and we are offering this special gift (hand books over) on health and hope. It will just cost you a kind smile! (be sure to smile yourself)

Introduction with prayer

Hello, how are you today? My name is […] from your local […] Adventist church and we are offering this special gift (hand books over) on health and happiness. We like to keep our community in prayer. Is there anything specific you would like us to add to our prayer list?

You can also offer your local church’s community services survey for those who are open to talking longer. Another idea would be for members and Bible workers to offer the book as a gift as a thank you for completing a short community survey.
