Outreach Event Ideas

Friday Night Free Hot Dogs
Go to your local skate park at around 6 or 7 pm. Take a grill and some coolers of water, lemonade, and soda. Grill up the hotdogs and yell "FREE HOTDOGS!" Kids will surround your grills and start eating and talking. Kids begin to ask why you're there. Just tell them "cuz we care about you." Sometimes the door opens to share the Gospel with them and talk about Christ's love. This has been a great bridge to getting kids to youth group.

I am going to try this at a local park near my church. I pray that it goes well. I am the new outreach pastor and we are trying to reach out. Our kids will love to do this.

I am going to try this activity I have just moved to Georgia from Utah and live in a apartment complex where young children live and they are always in the yard by alone playing without any adults supervision. I feel that will be a great time to introduce them to the Lord.
