God tells us to GO and be His witnesses! The following are some ways that you can GO as a witness for Christ Jesus. Do not limit yourself to this list; get creative and consider your own ways that you will GO and tell others about the Good News of Jesus.
Our goal as a congregation is to witness 2,022 times this year. Each time you do something from the list below (or some other way of witnessing that you come up with on your own), send an email to AndGo@KnowingJesus.org. When we receive your email, we will put up a special footprint decal in the church to celebrate this Gospel witness. Together we will GO and be His witnesses “in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
