■ YOUTH LEADERS – G5 VIDEO CONTEST – ONLY 2 WEEKS LEFT — Insight magazine is asking your youth and youth groups to submit videos to their G5 (Galations 5:22), fruits of the spirit video contest. Prizes range from an iPod touch to cash money.
Contact: www.insightmagazine.org/videos/g5.asp for rules and more information.
■ “LISTENING TO GOD” IS THE TITLE OF THE NEXT ADVENTIST PREACHING DVD — In a series of five sermons Ron Clouzet, NAD Ministerial Secretary, Theology professor at the Seventh-day Adventist Seminary at Andrews University, and NADEI Director, discusses the obstacles and conditions for opening the lines of communication with our Heavenly Father.
Adventist Preaching DVDs are ideal for small churches without a full-time pastor, for shut-ins, or for people who want to add to their spiritual growth. They can also benefit the local church by providing spiritual enrichment for prayer meetings, vespers, family and health ministries seminars, and community outreach.
Contact: www.AdventistPreaching.com to order. Cost: US$24.95 for the 2-DVD set which includes 5 sermons and a bonus feature which is an interview with Clouzet by Richard O’Ffill.
■ THE SIGN – NEW 2009 MISSIONARY BOOK OF THE YEAR — Written by Shawn Boonstra, The Sign is a pocket-sized book about the Sabbath and includes basic concepts about salvation and a relationship with God. It’s perfect for sharing with stressed out, overworked and tired Americans that you meet.
“I have long suspected that the relentless pace of modern life is deliberate,” says Boonstra. “Someone is trying to keep us incessantly occupied, because if we stopped the endless cycle of activity for even a few moments, we would discover something amazing — the presence of God.”
“Boonstra approaches the Sabbath from a very personal and need-oriented way…showing the Sabbath as the answer to a common problem that so many Americans face,” says Dale Galusha, president for Pacific Press®. “We are proud to publish this important sharing tool and to have it as our Missionary Book of the Year for 2009.”
Contact: Your local Adventist Book Center or ABC Nationwide at www.adventistbookcenter.com or 800-765-6955. Quantity discount pricing starts at $1.99.
