Edgemoor ARP Church, SC, went out through a new neighborhood near the church to invite folks to their Fall Festival. 28 church members of all ages went on a hayride giving out pumpkins with an invitation attached. The idea came from one Sunday night Bible study. They prepared items for 100 houses tying ribbons as they went along. They had several positive responses and are looking to do more such outreaches in the same neighborhood and another new one that is slowly being built.
We hope this is encouraging to you and your church to try the same thing for any events at your church, not just during the holiday season.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” (Luke 10:27)
