Evangelism Excursion Plus: Redondo Beach Pier

 This is a handy verse to memorize when sharing 1-to-1 or preaching in the open air:

“For Christ died for sins once for all,
the righteous for the unrighteous,
to bring you to God.”

(1 Peter 3:18)

EXCURSION: Join us this Saturday as we go to our local fishing hole, the Redondo Beach Pier. Meet at Hope Chapel at noon to carpool.

Usually when we head to our local fishin’ hole, the Redondo Beach Pier, it is a placid, gentle place to hand out Gospel tracts and share our faith one-to-one; last week was the exception. A patrol officer, new on the beat, took issue with our team, led by my trusted leader Ed Lee. Here is the Incident Report we sent to our lawyer. Afterward, I’d love to hear what you have to say about what happened and your reaction to Ed’s response.

As you requested, here is a short summary of the police intervention today:

At approximately 3:45 pm this afternoon, as I was leading the evangelism outreach at Redondo Beach Pier, Sgt. ________ approached me and announced in a loud voice, “I told you people that you cannot pass out any literature anywhere on the pier or the international walkway! It is illegal to do so, and if you do not stop I will take you upstairs to the police office and cite you for a violation and it will cost you $350!” Click here to read the rest.
