Start Something New
At our Annual Meeting back in October I challenged each of you present to think of something "NEW" you and your church can do this year. The theme was "Start Something New". Since that time I have heard from a few churches that are actually doing this! Please allow me to encourage you and your church to think outside of the box and to pray that God will give direction towards a new ministry. The ministry does not have to be elaborate nor expensive. Mainly, it needs to be something that leads you and your church to engage the culture around where you live. Here are a few examples to consider...prayer walk a local school, hold devotions with sports teams, visit nursing homes, have a special service for first responders, provide snacks for teachers of a local school, host a small group bible study in your home, write notes of appreciation to teachers, police officers, EMS, etc...
Start Something New!
