3 Mahusay Outreach Proyekto Para sa Spring sa pamamagitan ng Janie Sjogren

Spring ay dito at panahon na ito ay isang mahusay na pagkakataon upang maabot ang out sa iyong komunidad at ipakita sa kanila ng Diyos pag-ibig sa mga praktikal na paraan.

Narito ang tatlong mga mahusay na outreach proyekto na ay perpekto para sa spring:

1. Free Car Wash

This is an effective, praktikal na serbisyo. Nag-aalok kami ng isang car wash bawat linggo sa tag-init. Have a professionally made banner or sign that says “Totally Free Car Wash!” o “Free – No Kidding – Pagpapaligo sa kotse!” Have a few people who are not shy, cheerfully yell at cars driving by – “Free Car Wash!” Former cheerleaders are great for this role! This outreach needs a good project manager to organize volunteers, car flow and ensure a quality job.

Purchase high quality car wash soap and do a thorough job – scrub the tires and dry the car. Your hard work will speak volumes about God’s love!

Materials:

  • Connection Cards
  • Free Car Wash Signs
  • Hoses and nozzles
  • Water Source (important!)
  • Buckets
  • Car Wash Soap
  • Squeegee
  • Tire brushes
  • Towels/Chamois Cloth

Team Size: 8+

Outreach Cost: Inexpensive

Child-friendly: Oo, it’s great fun for kids, but they must be well supervised

 

2. General Yard Cleanup

After the winter weather is over, all sorts of debris become obvious. Go door to door with gloves, rakes, and trash bags.

Materials:

Team Size: 2+

Outreach Cost: Free / inexpensive

Child-friendly: No

 

3. Bottled Water Giveaway

Many people prefer water to soft drinks. Ice down bottles of water in Igloo coolers for an alternative to Coke giveaways. Use the same drink connection cards. We don’t recommend combining this with a soda giveaway because it offers too many options and gets complicated. You can do this anywhere there are a lot of people gathered.

Materials:

Team Size: 3+

Outreach Cost: Moderate

Child-friendly: No

4 Warm Panahon ng Outreach Ideya sa pamamagitan ng Janie Sjogren

Nagiging mas mainit at ito ay nagbabago kung ano ang maaari naming gawin upang ipakita ang pag-ibig sa aming komunidad. Tingnan ang iyong mga supply ng closet, at gawin ang ilang mga spring-cleaning upang pasariwain ang lahat ng bagay up. Ang tipikal na toilet-cleaning kit at panalong-hangin washing supplies ay isang panimula, ngunit magdagdag ng ilang mga mas maliit na bahagi sa iyong outreaches may isang mahusay na iba't-ibang mga pagpipilian sa handa. Narito ang apat na outreach ideya para sa mas mainit na panahon.

Ilagay ang isang iuwi sa ibang bagay Sa Ang tipikal na Car Wash - Gawing itong isang $1 Pagpapaligo sa kotse

Kumuha ng malaking banner na basahin, "Libreng Car Wash-Walang Kidding!"O" $ 1 Car Wash!"Sa $1 Car Wash bersyon, magbibigay sa iyo ng tao $1 pagkatapos ng paghuhugas ng kanilang mga kotse, may Connect card na nagpapaliwanag kung bakit ang iyong ginagawa ito, "Ito ay isang simpleng paraan upang sabihin Diyos nagmamahal sa iyo, walang string ng nakalakip!"

I-set up sa isang kalye na may makabuluhang daloy ng trapiko, may tubig-access at isang madaling pasukan at labasan. Gamitin cones soccer upang idirekta ang trapiko kung saan mo nais ito. Lumikha ng isang pag-anyaya sa sitting area na may soccer upuan at down na may yelo inumin sa isang mas malamig.

Ilagay ang ilang mga mataas na enerhiya, cheerleader uri sa kanto na malapit sa iyong site. Sabihin sa kanila na iling ang kanilang mga karatula, iwagayway ang kanilang mga kamay at sa pangkalahatan ay direktang mga tao sa wash kotse.

Tiyakin na magkaroon ng friendly na mga tao upang batiin ang mga driver, at makipag-usap sa mga tao. Huwag makakuha kaya abala washing na nakalimutan mo upang pumasa ang isang card at ang paliwanag na ang iyong ginagawa ito bilang isang proyekto ng komunidad serbisyo upang ipakita ang mga ito ng isang maliit na ng Diyos ang pag-ibig.

Ilagay ang iyong Cooler Upang Work!

Binabalik Cooler ay mahusay para sa tubig at pop outreaches. Kung ang iyong iglesia kayang isa, makakuha ng isang malaking Ice Maker na laging may yelo sa handa. Cooler ring gagana nang maayos sa transportasyon mainit na aso at hamburger nakabalot sa fast-food wrappers Foil. Ang mas malamig na gawain tulad ng isang bapor, at ang mga kalakal dumating mainit-init. Mag-alok na may kanya-kanyang balot condiments, at maghatid sa paligid 11:00 habang ang mga tao ay pa rin gutom.

Ice Cream Kupon Bigyan-Malayo

Ice cream ay isang masaya pagkain! Bumili ng isang dami ng mga kupon na ice cream sa isang discount. Makipag-ugnay sa iyong lokal na tindahan ng ice cream, o may McDonald o Chick-Fil-A. Ipaliwanag na ang iyong ginagawa, isang proyekto ng komunidad serbisyo, at na plano mong sa pagbibigay ng ice cream kupon layo.

Mga lugar upang pumunta isama campus, parke, kapitbahayan, kaganapang pampalakasan, at skate park. Bigyan ang isang koneksyon Card sa bawat Kupon Ice Cream.

Festival Kaligtasan Pack

Saan pagkain at inumin ay ibinebenta bilang bahagi ng isang kaganapan ng komunidad, huwag maging bastos at bigyan ang layo ng inumin o pagkain. Sa halip, gumawa ng up ng maliit na pack ng mga item sa isang maliit na zip-lock bag.

Mga item na ito ay maaaring kabilang: Towelettes para sa paglilinis ng mga sticky daliri, maliit na sample ng losyon o cream kulay mula sa araw, herbabuwena isang matapang na kendi upang pasariwain hininga, tisyu, golf lapis at maliit Pad ng mga post-nito o Pad ginawa mula sa kawili-wili papel na basura.

Planuhin Ngayon Para sa Outreaches Araw ng mga Puso kabaitan! ni Janie Sjogren

"Ang ibig mong makuha ang iyong mga Puso ngayon?" Ito ay madali upang ilagay ang isang outreach Araw ng mga Puso magkasama sa isang maikling panahon. Ang mga tao ay talagang buksan ang oras na ito ng taon, at lahat ng tao nagmamahal nagsisimula pa ng kaunti pag-ibig na ipinakita sa kanila!

Rosas ay isang mahusay na ideya, balot na may hininga sanggol at ang ilan sa Tagaytay papel mula sa iyong lokal sa Tagaytay. Mag-utos ng mga bahagi at ang iyong koponan wrap up ang lahat ng bagay. I-wrap up ang bawat pulang rosas nang isa-isa. I-wrap sa paghinga sanggol, pulang Tagaytay papel at malinaw na plastic sheet, pagkatapos ay itali ang isang laso sa isang outreach card dito. Rosas ay mahusay upang bigyan out sa mga sulok ng kalye, at ang mga tao ay magulat, libre ito. Ang ilang mga simbahan gumamit ng simbolong "$ 1 Rosas" at pagkatapos ay bigyan ang mga rosas at ang dollar sa mga taong! Red carnation rin gumagana nang maayos para sa proyektong ito.

Kending tsokolate ay isang mahusay na regalo ng pag-ibig oras na ito ng taon. Ilagay ang Hershey kisses o iba pang nakabalot Candies sa maliit na malinaw na bag nakatali may laso at isang card na nagpapahayag na "Ito ay isang maliit na paraan upang ipaalam sa iyo nagmamahal sa iyo Diyos, walang string ng nakalakip!" Mga Regalo ng Candies sa mga manggagawa sa mga tindahan ay madalas na rin natanggap, pati na rin ang pagpapakita ng pagmamahal sa pag-aalaga at pag-aalaga ng mga bahay. Bumili 3 "X 5" zip-pagsasara ng bag online.

Itakda ang petsa at oras! Kunin ang iyong koponan magkasama, planuhin kung ano ang makikita mo ibigay at itakda ang petsa para sa iyong outreach Araw ng mga Puso. Tiyakin na mayroon kang lahat ng mga item upang mag-ipon bago ang outreach.

Kung pack mo ang mga ito, ang iyong mga tao ay magbibigay sa kanila ang layo! Ang isa pang mahusay na paraan upang makakuha ng matamis sa mga taong ay upang ipadala ang iyong mga dadalo Linggo ang pinto sa 5 o 10 hanay ng mga Candies na may nakalakip na card handa upang bigyan ang layo.

Kailangang malaman ang mga ito ay mahal sa mga tao, at ito ay isang madaling paraan upang gawin ito!

3 Masaya Madali at murang mga Holiday Outreaches ni Steve Sjogren

1. Bread Giveaway

Everybody likes bread! Lalo na mula sa mga high-end na tinapay tindahan na may Tinapay ng Kumpanya sa isang lugar sa pangalan ... Alam ba ninyo na maaari mong ayusin upang makatanggap ng mga araw-lumang tinapay mula sa specialty tinapay tindahan para sa LIBRE? Maaari mo ring tingnan sa pambansang chain grocery store na may in-house Panederya. Talk to the store manager and explain your outreach concept. Tell a few stories of the people you are helping and you will likely establish your “daily bread” connection. It will only take one or two of these connections to begin a substantial ministry in your community.

Many of these stores do not have a reliable source to distribute their old bread to. The key is to be consistent and reliable in picking up their bread. You will need to have a team and as schedule so you don’t disappoint the bread store managers. As a good public relations gesture, write a letter of thanks to the store manager for his company’s generosity to the community (and don’t be surprised to see it framed and posted on the wall of the store).

The ministry is simple and straight forward. Knock on the doors of the houses and apartments. Say, “Hi, we’re giving away fresh, free high-quality bread. Could you use some, or do you know anyone in the neighborhood who could use some?” Give recipients an outreach card and offer to pray for them as you hand out the bread.

How Do You Find People To Give Bread To?

Cold calling (just knocking on doors) in lower-income neighborhoods and apartments complexes works fine with this project. Stay away from neighborhoods closest to the donating store.

What You’ll Need

2. Big Christmas Party

People in need don’t always celebrate Christmas properly because there aren’t Christ-centered celebration opportunities. You can sponsor an event that will be fun and cause everyone to focus on Jesus.

The elements of this celebration include playing games and singing songs. As you sing Christmas carols, make sure the words are available. It’s also fun to have a few inexpensive rhythm instruments to play along with.

Someone can share what Christmas is about in a very positive and upbeat way – simply explaining, “Christmas is important to me because…”

Decorations and refreshments and a meal can be simple or elaborate, depending on the inclination of your group.

For about $1 per photo, you can take Polaroid pictures of kids with an ethnically correct Santa. Design a simple backdrop and get up-close with the camera. Mount the photo on red or green construction paper and add the child’s name and year with a gold or silver marking pen.

At the conclusion of the party, give away small gifts as people depart – perhaps a Bible or devotional book. Consider giving away the decorations as well.

How Do You Find People Who Would Enjoy A Christmas Party?

Invite those who are already connected with your ministry to those in need. Give out fliers or invitations at previous events in the neighborhood, or simply walk around the neighborhood and distribute fliers.

What You’ll Need:

  • facility to host the party
  • Polaroid camera and film
  • construction paper
  • glue sticks
  • gold and silver marking pens
  • refreshments
  • outreach cards

3. Winter Survival Kits

Winter can be hard on the body and the soul. A survival kit is great encouragement to everyone who receives one.

The kit contains a packet of facial tissue, lip balm, throat lozenges, and an outreach card.

In Action

Our churches have had great success with this project as we have aimed it at parents and business professionals. We go to parks that parents frequent with their children and downtown sidewalks as business professionals make their way out to lunch. When those we meet notice how nice the kit is, they are very grateful and usually end up striking a conversation with us.

Where To Go

  • campuses
  • parke
  • kapitbahayan
  • kaganapang pampalakasan
  • downtown
  • commuters
  • shopping centers

What You’ll Need

  • zip lock plastic bags
  • lip balm
  • throat lozenges
  • individual packets of facial tissue
  • outreach cards

Why Outreach Cards

When doing a project, it is important to have a means to connect with those you serve. An outreach card is a business-sized card you can leave with those you have served so they can get back in touch you if they desire. The idea isn’t to accomplish a sales job where you promote your church. Rather, it is a simple way to leave your church’s name, address, phone number and service times so that when future needs arise, those you’ve served will have a way of reconnecting with you. The idea is to be available without giving out personal addresses.

If you need outreach cards for your holiday projects, we highly recommend those on our sister site at KindnessResources.com.

LOCATIONS FOR OUTREACH

Intentional Acts of Kindness: Find women to give flowers to on street corners, nursing homes, shopping areas and door to door give-aways.

Empower the people in church to extend love beyond the walls of the church: Have the flowers with cards attached and ready on Sunday morning, and ask people to take them as they leave to give away. They might have someone in mind, or they might know of someone who lives alone in their neighborhood who could use a lift. Or they could hand them out to strangers that they come across.

Mayroon ba kayong anumang mga ideya para sa SE sa Dr. Martin Luther Hari Araw?

Pastor Eugene Jackson

Iyon ay isang mahusay na tanong! Karamihan sa mga paaralan ay pag-ibig na magkaroon ng mga miyembro ng iyong simbahan tumulong sa panahon ng programa at festivities sa ito napakahalaga araw. Sa katunayan, bakit hindi mag-host ng isang magulang guro pagpapahalaga hapunan sa isa sa iyong mga lokal na paaralan? Ito ay madaling gawin. Ang lahat ng ito ay nagsasangkot ay paglalaan ng normal Iglesia Linggo panlipunan o brunch sa kalsada sa susunod na meeting PTA. Maaari mong palawakin ang maliit na outreach sa isang programa sa pagbabasa pagtuturo. Pagtuturo ng pagbabasa ay talagang mas madali kaysa ito ay tila. Gustung-gusto Kids upang mabasa sa–kahit mas lumang mga bata. Bilang panalo ka sa kanila sa paglipas ng sa pamamagitan ng pagbabasa ng ilang mga kuwento, sa iyo at pagkatapos ay mapalawak nang higit iyon at ipakita ang mga ito kung paano basahin sa kanilang sariling. Ay ko sa iyo in sa isang maliit na lihim. Kapag basahin mo nang malakas sa mga bata, visualation ng kuwento ay natural. Karamihan sa mga bata na nahihirapan sa pagbabasa kulang ang kakayahang isalin ang mga character na string sa isang pahina sa viual konteksto sa kanilang utak. Iyon ay kung saan ka nanggaling sa. Oo naman mayroong ilang mga bata na may malubhang kapansanan sa pag-aaral na nangangailangan ng interbensyon ng isang sanay na professional, ngunit kung ano ang madalas na walang higit pang mga mukha ay oras na may isang pag-aalaga sapat na gulang na mga modelo sa pag-aaral para sa kanila. Iyon maliit na investment ng iyong oras at lakas ay magbabayad ng malaking dividends sa kanilang buhay. Ang ekonomiya ay ganap na hindi maayos ngayon, at mga pamilya na may mga bata ay talagang pakiramdam ang pakurot. Kaya ang mga guro at mga paaralan. Bakit hindi isaalang-alang ang ii-sponsor ng ilang mga anak o silid-aralan sa mga libro na basahin para sa napapanatiling tahimik na pagbabasa? Maaari ko bang kahit na ilagay mo sa ugnay sa isang malaking kumpanya na nagbebenta ng libro sa African American mga tema para sa mga paaralan, mga guro, at pamilya ng mga mag-aaral sa isang kamangha-manghang presyo. Kung mong ilagay ang pangalan ng aming mga editor ng, makakakuha ka ng mga dagdag na diskwento:

Nagpaplano Outreaches Holiday

Mayroong ilang mga beses sa panahon ng taon ng kalendaryo kapag ang mga tagasunod ni Jesus magkaroon ng isang natatanging pagkakataon upang ikonekta ang mga tuldok sa pagitan ng Diyos puso at ang puso ng mga multitudes ng mga tao nakakasama sa aming komunidad. Ang Christmas season ay marahil ang pinakamalaking ng mga oras na iyon. Sa isang paraan, kami halos magkaroon ng isang hindi patas na kalamangan, dahil kahit skeptics ay nalulula ka sa lahat ng mga endorphins holiday at kaguluhan. Maaari naming malinaw na-target kung ano ang mga tao ay gutom para sa, kung kami nagpapabagal lamang mahaba sapat upang makinig sa kung ano ang nasa kanilang mga puso. Kami dito sa Pasko upang magtrabaho sa magkasunod sa Diyos Espiritu bilang oras ng panahon ay nagbibigay-daan sa amin upang makipag-ugnay sa mga tao sa natatanging paraan. Ang mga pagkakataon na hindi nagsasabi ng totoo bago sa amin ay napakalawak kung handa kaming ma-pokus.

Pambalot Presents
Ito ay isa sa mga pinaka-makapangyarihang paraan na maaari mong maghatid ng isang tao sa panahon ng oras na ito ng taon. Ito ay mahusay na dahil ikaw ay magagawang upang makisali sa isang tunay na pag-uusap sa kanila bilang ka ng pambalot ng regalo ang kanilang mga. Higit pang mga beses kaysa hindi, sila ay tatanungin sa iyo kung bakit mo ginagawa ito para sa kanila. Usisa na magbibigay sa isang natural na pagkakataon para magbahagi ng Ebanghelyo. Gamit na sinabi, ito ay madaling mahuli up sa pisikal na pagkilos ng kasalukuyang wrapping. Kailangan naming mag-ingat na huwag kalimutan ang espiritwal na aspeto ng paghahatid ng mga ito. Ito ay palaging pinakamahusay na upang mapabagal bagay pababa ng kaunti. Kumuha ng sapat na samantalahin ang mga pagkakataon upang ibahagi ang Diyos ang pag-ibig.

Pambalot Presents – Malaking Scale Project
Mayroong ilang mga payo upang tandaan kung ang iyong ginagawa ito bilang isang mas malaking sukat ng kaganapan. Kakailanganin mo upang simulan ang isang recruiting medyo malaking volunteer na puwersa-don't magpabukas-bukas-start pangitain-paghahagis ngayon! Ang susi sa outreach na ito ay ang magiging tauhan mo nakakalap ng magkasama. Dapat silang ma-enthused at sa parehong pahina. Ikaw ay naghahanap para sa mga tao na ang mga kaguluhan catalysts sa iyong simbahan. Ang mga tao sa umunlad ang enerhiya at kagalakan ng season. Simulan ang pagkakatipon materyales ngayon! Huwag ilagay ito off. Pagkakasunod-sunod ng maraming kung ano ang kailangan mo. Isaisip na hindi mo nais upang biguin ang iyong mga volunteer na puwersa. The name of the game here is to have “More than plenty” so people will not have to twiddle their thumbs waiting on restocking when they could be serving the public and having divine conversations. Start praying now! We will be connecting with people who are not yet connected with us nor are they connected with the God of heaven and earth. They are in immense spiritual need, no matter what walk of life they come from. We are his representatives. We are not only wrapping presents – we are spiritual ambassadors. We need to blend the spiritual act of praying with the physical act of serving. If we get out of sync with our serving we cease to be effective in our activity. We are merely chasing our tails.

Strategy
Ang aming tungkulin ay upang maglingkod sa kanila ang lahat at hayaan ang Diyos-uri-uriin ang mga ito out. Sa nakaraan na tao ang iminungkahing na dapat naming lamang humingi upang maghatid ng mga marginalized, ngunit Gusto ko magtaltalan na ang kanilang mga kahulugan ng kahirapan, Maaaring masyadong makitid. Ang kagandahan ng pambalot ng regalo shopping mall o department store ay na ay nakatagpo ka ng mga tao na may iba't iba socio-economic status, ngunit lahat sila ay may espirituwal at emosyonal na pangangailangan. Iyon ay kung ano talaga kami ay naghahanap upang hawakan. Huwag maging nabalaho sa putik sa pamamagitan ng kakayahan. Kahit na ikaw ay ang lahat ng thumbs, pagkakataon ay pa rin ang iyong ginagawa sa tao ng napakalaking serbisyo. Sa katunayan ako ay nagkaroon mga tao pumalit sa wrapping mula sa akin bilang ko lang ipasa sa kanila ang supplies at ipako flaps at mga string habang ginagawa nila detalyadong wrapping. What this is really about is the conversation you share while the gift is being wrapped. You don’t have to be a highly skilled craft person to do this activity. We can all engage in the simple sharing line of “We are here to wrap your present as a part of XYZ Community Church to show you some love this Christmas. Make sure you remind folks: “We are not a part of the mall / store personnel – we pay for this ourselves in order to show God’s love in a practical way to the community. Our intent is to give God’s love, not just talk about it.” Some simple chatter will do the trick until the other person clicks in with some acknowledgement of what you are saying. They will either engage with you or they will change the subject. Maraming ay nais na makipag-chat ng kaunti. Tandaan ikaw ay planting isang binhi ng kagandahang-loob sa puso ng karamihan ng tao ang pumupunta kami sa contact na may. Ito ang magiging isa sa maraming mga buto ang taong iyon ay kailangan na dumating sa contact sa kahabaan ng kanilang paglalakbay bago ang kanilang mga conversion sa Jesus. Namin ang lahat ng magkaroon ng isang natatanging landas sa isang pag-ibig na kaugnayan sa Jesus. Bihirang-bihira ito ay isang biglaang conversion. Ang aming mga bahagi bilang kanyang mga tagasunod ay upang sabihin sa aming mga kuwento kasama ang paraan sa pagitan ng ngayon at pagkatapos ay sa mas maraming mga hangga't maaari. Sa regalo wrapping makakakuha tayo ng maraming pagkakataon upang ibahagi ang aming mga kuwento at ang kanyang mga kuwento nang sabay-sabay.

Dapat ito ay mapapansin na kung wala kang mga mapagkukunan o boluntaryo ito gawin sa isang mall o malaking department store, isang mas maliit na tindahan diskwento sa isang limitadong iskedyul ay maaaring maging isang perpektong panimulang lokasyon para sa iyong grupo. Maaari mong palaging gumagana patungo sa layunin ng pagpapalawak ng kaganapang ito sa hinaharap taon.

Tindahan ng Alak Outreach?
As Jesus often demonstrated, we need to hang out with the sinners. The name of the game is, “We are here to connect with people who don’t go to church.” This is always the objective to keep in front of you. The object is not to serve churchy people. For the most part those folks already understand the notion of God’s love. I ran into a group who had latched onto the giftwrapping concept last season, but they got the application pretty much backwards. They set up shop in front of a Christian book store. I suggested they move across the parking lot to a liquor store. They laughed heartily at the suggestion. I didn’t laugh. I wasn’t kidding. Not in the least. Another pastor friend was present when this conversation took place. He chimed in. “Yes, that’s a very good idea. If you are after the head tilt with this project you really need to switch locations. I did an outreach like this a few years ago when I was working for a Church in California and we set up the outreach in front of a liquor store. One guy came in planning to just buy some booze and other supplies for a party, including a last minute gift—the ultimate one stop shopping. Not only was he converted by this radical love he certainly wasn’t shopping for, this guy became a member of the church and over time became one of its most influential leaders!”

Keep in mind not everyone that shops at a liquor store has drinking problem—we are wise to not generalize. We are also wise to go to places that have historically been cast off by the church culture in general. Once again: “serve them all, let God sort them out!” A liquor store may be prime real estate for holding a small, outdoor gift-wrapping outreach. Make sure you clearly explain your intent and the point of the outreach with the owner / manager of the store prior to doing the outreach. This conversation is key to the success of the outreach making it or not.

The Taste of Christmas
Here is a quick and easy outreach you can put together as either a business blast kindness event, or a take-home kit for you to give to church members as the exit from weekend services. The materials are easy to gather: 1) A bulk supply of Ziploc snack size baggies 2) Well crafted connect cards with a holiday design 3) High quality Christmas candy.

Candy Canes are always welcomed it seems. If you really want to make a dent inpeople’s lives, purchase different colored candy canes other than the standard red and white colors. Apparently there are now even exotic fruit flavors available in neon colors, but with the traditional shape. Make sure you have some chocolate. This is crucial. Hershey’s makes a seasonal version of Kisses that are decorated in green foil or red foil. There is actually a large variety of seasonal candy that you will find on display starting in early November. You are going for a mix that is attractive in appearance and flavor. The connect card is the anchor. In fact we have a few new fantastic designs available now at Kindness Resources LLC. The name of the game is to give away as many of these as possible with a small connect card inserted into the Ziplock bag. One candy cane, a few pieces of candy is all you need for each bag to make a small effective touch. If you purchase in bulk you can keep your cost efficiency to between $0.07 to $0.12 per touch!

Black Friday Outreach
Some daring people / churches have the courage to take on enormous crowds that gather for shopping specials the day after Thanksgiving. This outreach needs to be done in connection with the store that is willing to allow you to do something spectacular directly in front of their location. I have neverheard of a store that wasn’t anything less than tickled at the offer of having a Black Friday outreach done in front of their location. I have on occasion heard of stores where they pay for part or all of the outreach materials so long as the people from the local church manned the labor aspect of the outreach. This is actually easy to do. Think of any nice touch to get the attention of a frenzied shopper:

  • Free Coffee/Hot Chocolate (check out the cool back pack dispenser)
  • Free Battery Packs
  • Free Ribbon
  • Free Scotch Tape
  • Free Wrapping Paper Kits
  • Free “Pop Up” Bows
  • Shopping Cart Valet Service
  • Umbrella Outreach
  • Windshield Cleaning Patrol

Final Thoughts
This season, make sure that you remember that people are hungry for relationship. The holidays remind us we are more ill-equipped for relationships than at any other times of the year. We get around those who are perhaps challenging to us, yet they are the ones we love. We are hungry to see progress made in relationships, but we don’t know how to make progress without being driven crazy at the same time. This is a time of year when people are in some ways the most open to a “Big God” encounter. There is a sort of collective verbal outcry that goes very much like this:

"Dear God, if you are real and if you answer prayers, please hear mine. I ask that you would change my family and make us more loving toward one another. Amen.”

It is also important to remember that people are in a hurry. Nearly everyone is on a short emotional fuse. Thus, we must be mindful of the tendency on the parts of everyone to be a bit odd about things in general. If it is ever appropriate to proceed with caution now is the time of year for those words to be taken to heart.

We should also make sure that we invest time and energy on retail employees. Given the current economy, this holiday season is predicted to see a record number of new seasonal part-time employees hit the work force. For many this grim reality of a second or third job will be a shock to their system. They will be in as much need for kindness as they will the extra funds they hope to gain by adding ten to twenty hours onto their already exhausting hours of employment just to make ends meet or to gather extra holiday cash. Our hope is to scatter our seeds at the Christmas season in order to see a return to our love language throughout the rest of the year. During the final part of the calendar year we may end up seeing a return that is greater than all the other weeks and months we go out and serve folks. Sa katunayan, I think it will pale by comparison. Let’s make the most of what we have before us. Let’s connect the dots and see what God is up to right around us. That will happen as we serve with all our hearts and lay caution aside.
