Be an inspiration to 5 people at church.

Make a commitment to call them once a week to check-in

 see how they are doing, if they need anything or have a prayer request that you can pray with them about.

 

In this uncertain time we don't want people to feel

forgotten or uncared about. So let's make sure we are

showering each other with Christ love.

 

Other ways to outreach.

1. Reconnect with distant family members that you may not talk to on a regular basis.

2. Reach out to the neighbor on either side of you. Leave a sticky note on their mailbox or door encouraging them. Leave your phone number and offer to pray with them. Invite them to join the church or study online.

3. Get groups together on video chat, especially for kids to reconnect with their friends. This is a lot of fun I must say.

4. Form small groups and have a Bible study together, watch a movie, have a nail party, the ideas are endless.

How many have said, "I don't have time for that", well now you may have a lot of free-time. Use it to build on existing friendships and make some new ones.

You shall love your neighbor as yourself. -- James 2:8

 

So we can make sure everyone in church is covered, let me know who your 5 will be, if you don’t mind.
