It all began last summer as we sponsored a 5 day Bible club. Then, a block party was planned and we participated in the community’s “Trunk or Treat” effort. In November, we began a 6 week after School program that included a bible study, mission study, Bible verse memory, games and refreshments.
The discussion last night centered on future ministry ideas.
Ideas included – VBS in the community July 9-13, 5:30-8 pm. Begin with a light supper. Include an adult and youth bible study at the same time.
Movie night, Easter Egg Hunt, work day to do light yard work in the community, coordinate the delivery of lunch meals in the summer for the children, begin an “adopt a grandparent” ministry, provide Monday- Friday activities during spring break (March 30-April 6), continue with the Tuesday after school program in 6 week cycles.
Begin a weekly Bible Study/Worship time in the community supported by the people from the Ridge church. Perhaps meeting on a Sunday afternoon. This service would be in lieu of our Sunday night service.
As you pray, ask the Lord how we can reach the community.
