Outreach Event Ideas

NOTE FROM JONATHAN: I think one of the best ways we can point to Christ is through "acts of service." I'm not talking about handing out tracks or "door knocking"... I'm talking about good ol' fashion helping people in need. And if people ask why, we simply answer, "Because that's what Jesus would have done, and we're pretty excited about Jesus."

Puzzle Find Service Project
This is a service project for your student leaders or a small group . . . with a creative twist.

Arrange a service project for your group. You could volunteer to clean someone’s home or even something like cleaning a supply closet in your church.

I decided my office, storage room, and table storage room needed a major clean-up. So, why not put the group to work by having a clean-up (we called it "Service Night").

However, the trick I added was that at each clean-up area, a puzzle piece was hidden. The kids had to collect all the pieces to form a puzzle. Mine spelled out, "Free food in my office." We worked first, then enjoyed good grub afterwards!
