Your gift today helps keep the gospel moving in some of the hardest countries around the world.
Easter is a great holiday to engage your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers with the hope of the gospel. Most people in Western nations celebrate this holiday in some way, so it is a great connection point.
Normally, you get an opportunity from God to love people by inviting them to church, having them over for a special meal and getting into conversations about the true reasons for the season.
This year will look a little different. It is April 2020 as I write this, and the whole world is — how to put it delicately — the world is collectively going THROUGH it with COVID-19.
Now, more than ever, people need hope. They need to hear that God has not abandoned them, is with them and is for them.
In most places, group gatherings have been banned. If you need to go out in public, you must stay six feet away from others. Many church services have been moved online, which proves difficult for older congregations, for low-income communities that lack consistent internet and for people who have never gone to church and are seeking answers with nowhere to turn.
God wants to use you in the mission field He has you in right now — that is, in your neighborhood. There is a simple, fun, kid-friendly way to engage your neighbors with the gospel. This innovative (not to mention hip) method of outreach is: sidewalk chalking.
Here is a step-by-step guide to creating a sidewalk chalk evangelism journey for your neighborhood that fosters community and can connect your neighbors to your local church.
Extra Pro-Tip. As you’re chalking, if people walk by and stop, initiate with them while keeping the proper social distance. Ask them how they are doing and how the past few weeks have been for them. Try to get into a spiritual conversation. A great introduction to a spiritual conversation is, “We’re doing this as a spiritual outreach to our neighbors. What is your spiritual background?”
Please follow all national, state and county regulations. If you can't leave your porch, then think of that as your place to decorate!
