Outreach Event Ideas

NOTE FROM JONATHAN: I think one of the best ways we can point to Christ is through "acts of service." I'm not talking about handing out tracks or "door knocking"... I'm talking about good ol' fashion helping people in need. And if people ask why, we simply answer, "Because that's what Jesus would have done, and we're pretty excited about Jesus."

Will Mow for Jesus
The idea is simple. We want to serve people outside of our church community. So we challenge people IN our church to identify neighbors that are NOT in our church and then we'll go paint, clean, mow, trim and SERVE them in any way. One lady was so thankful, she wrote our local newspaper commenting how grateful she was. Great way to touch people outside the church.

Tina, to answer your question, I think it would be best for your group to contact the people you will be serving ahead of time and see what their situation is. If they have a working mower and yard tools then maybe it would be easiest to use theirs...but then again, they may not even have a working mower. So, it's best to check out your situation before you all show up to work so that you can make the most of your work day.

Did you bring the supplies needed or did the people’s house you went have everything?
