Treasure hunts are an outreach with a twist. Based on biblical principles, treasure hunts begin with the simplicity of hearing words of knowledge from God that lead you to an individual in the community. Witnessing the love and saving grace of Jesus does not need to be invasive or argumentative; rather, it is a supernatural encounter when God reveals Himself in a specific way. This is the heart of treasure hunts: allowing God to speak to us about people we have never met, then going out to find them and sharing the love and power of God in a non-threatening way. The people are God’s treasures, and we let Him lead us to them, armed with words of knowledge concerning areas of need in their life, or an encouraging prophetic word that reveals God’s great heart for them.
In Acts 9:10-19 the Lord spoke to Ananias and told him where to go to find Saul of Tarsus, and what to say and do when he got there. Ananias followed God’s lead, and the result was the salvation and healing of Paul the apostle.
We normally meet on the third Sunday evening of the month at the Community Center. Watch the announcements on Sunday morning for our next treasure hunt, and come join the action.
