Your Community 6of6 – The Church
- Free Car Wash
- Free Yard Sale
- Kids Carnival
- Joining with an event happening in the community
- Washing windows
- Free food
These are all examples of how the church, can be the church, in the community. It’s not just a one time event but how we live our lives. The videos were specific events for reaching out to their community but it doesn’t have to be. It can be a lifestyle.
You can do this as a small group or the whole church body. Outreach is about going to the people and meeting them where they are at. You can join with events already happening in the community such as a Community Day, Parade, Garage Sale day, School Events, or you can meet a need you see in your community such as a neighbor needing their house painted, yard work, meeting a need in a school or organization. You can join events already happening and see where you can be helpful or a need they have, see a need in your community and meet it, or partner with another organization like Red Cross or a local Soup Kitchen.
See a need, meet the need. Help your church, be the church, in your community.
