Thank you for being with us tonight. Hopefully you have embraced the opportunity to Consider. If you did, you've taken one of the most significant steps, but there are still more decisions to be made. Below we have provided some ideas that we have found helpful in our own search for answers. This is your life, your choice, your heart, so you decide which medium you choose to go Beyond Consider.
TALK TO SOMEONE
All the below options are great ways to find more information on your own, but maybe the best thing to do, is just talk to someone. Ask a friend to just talk with you about their faith. Don't be hesitant. None of us have all the answers and everyone was once where you might be, considering for the first time.
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any unanswered questions, or need some advice, or just need to tell someone where you are at in life.
READ THE BIBLE
It is always a good idea to get a copy of the Bible and pick one of the books to read from start to finish. As the Bible is the most published book in human history, and we believe the Bible it is the inspired word of God, this is a great place to start finding out more. We recommend starting with one of the following books:
READ A BOOK
There are a lot of great books that can help you get started thinking and gathering information. Here are a few that we recommend.
"More Than a Carpenter" by Josh McDowell
"A Case for Christ" by Lee Stroble
"On The Road to Emmaus" by John R. Cross
VISIT A LOCAL CHURCH
See below for a list and location of some of the local churches we recommend. Remember that all of these churches have unique atmospheres and every pastor has a unique preaching style. So don't give up on church after just visiting once or one place.

LISTEN TO AN ONLINE SERMON
Most pastors have online sermons on their church website, which you can download as an MP3 or you sign up for podcasts on iTunes. Here are a few pastors we personally recommend.
Again, thank you for coming to CONSIDER 2008, and embracing your right as a human being to CONSIDER your purpose, faith, eternity, and how Jesus Christ might fit into those questions. Don't stop considering, and we will see you again next year.
