DAY OF HOPE
JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
There are a few major approaches to fulfilling the great commission. One is straight-up evangelism, whether it's door to door or a team in a park, people go out and share the gospel with whomever will listen and engage.
The 2nd is outreach events - events where a church invites friends, family, and the local community IN for something special -like a block party, a concert, a family fun night, or an Easter egg hunt. Here, the church shows itself to be a contributor to the community, and can share the gospel in a non-threatening environment.
The 3rd is Service. Though this is perhaps the least utilized and least understood mode. But we believe that service is a tremendous tool for sharing the love of Christ with our communities. Whether a church conducts a park clean-up, provides a food distribution event, makes 100 sandwiches and toiletries bags and hands them out to the homeless, or schedules a team to do renovations at a women's abuse shelter ... service provides an opportunity for Christians to grow, for the name of Jesus to be honored among those served, and for our non-christian friends and neighbors to join with us! YES, Its true! Many who will NOT come with us "to church" are eager to help with a service project ("even if its run by a church").
We want to empower YOU and YOUR CHURCH
to serve your community and include your 'neighbors'
Our board member, Rev Ed Crenshaw, has long been developing a culture of service at Victory Church in Norristown. Every year his church conducts over 50 service projects throughout their community (and a few in Philly). Ed wrote a book "Invite Your Neighbor, Change The World" as a 6 week small group study to teach the WHY and the HOW of service projects for Churches.
If you conduct this small group study, we'll provide FREE copies of the book.
AND, if you schedule a service project for the DAY OF HOPE ON OCTOBER 23, 2021
you can receive $250 to go towards the execution of your project
you can receive hundreds of FREE gospels of John and Christian books by authors like Mac Lucado in English & Spanish, for kids, teens and adults if its the kind of project where they would be relevant.
