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."
As a youth ministry, we went into the projects near the church with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, four-square balls and whiffle ball to hang out with the teens that live there, to begin a relationship. We met people that actually wanted to come to our weekly meetings, but did not have the transportation, or the money to use the public transportation. So, beginning this summer, we are going to bring the meetings to them on a regular basis right in their projects- food, worship, teaching and games - and rebuild donated bicycles with them so they have transportation to be able to get a job and get around the city.
