We live in a fast paced world and the church can be no exception. How can we engage our community in practical ways?
Give 4-5 practical tips to our listeners on how they can engage their church in their community:
Celebrate IN the community things that God is doing. Not just in the 4 wall of the church. Ryan shares a story of how Curtis Lake Church celebrated their 80th birthday in the community.
Look for ways you can meet a particular need in your community. Trunk or Treat, service opportunities, etc.
Leverage church structures IE Groups to serve the community.
Get involved in community action committee’s/boards. It’s a citizen opportunity as a representative of the church.
Participate in existing opportunities.
