SE Creates Space for Your Church to Get Involved

Deep down everyone in your church wants to do ministry. Each one wants to make a difference. It may be that they don’t know what they want to do – they may not know how they’re going to proceed forward — but if they can get just a bit of a vision they will become enthused. Give them something practical to do. Give away small tokens of God’s love.

Yesterday I gave away several packets of flower seeds (with an outreach card attached) to strangers as I went throughout my day. They were fairly stunned at this small gesture and my words (“Here is a gift to show you God’s love in a practical way…”). Serve by doing things that are important but distasteful to others. Clean restrooms. Squeegee windshields. Go door-to-door with ladders and clean out rain gutters. You will be surprised at how fulfilling it is to get gunk under your fingernails! The best is yet to come.
