On the way to the perfect life, sometimes we experience a detour. If that detour involves drug or alcohol addiction, hopelessness is often the outcome.

Make a Doll Kit to Pack in Your Christmas Shoebox

The Operation Christmas Child shoebox project is special to me. Thinking of the opportunity to give to a child who has so little and spread Jesus’ love is heartwarming. Here’s a doll kit to make for packing in a shoebox. I make a simple pillow, blanket, and tote. I purchase the dolls at a discount store.

Halloween: Reverse Trick or Treating

Many churches throw open their doors at Halloween with fall festivals to attract new people and create a positive impact on their community. Reverse trick or treating takes church members outside the church walls and into your neighborhood.

Plan a Day of Prayer for Unreached People

I was recently taking stock of my prayer life, and I became convicted it was an area I needed to grow in. As a child of God, it is a privilege to know the heart of God through prayer.

Global Hunger Awareness. Sharing Meals. Sharing Stories.

Global Hunger

“I’m starving.” We say it all the time when our meals are a little late, or we are dieting. Most of us know that our next meal is right around the corner, and our biggest challenge is which restaurant to choose.

Making Disciples at the Football Stadium

Fall is here, and with it comes colorful leaves, back to school shopping, and, yes, football!  And, football brings opportunities for making disciples.

Open Up Your Heart, Home, and Table to the Invisible

There are those in our communities who are known by everyone—the politician, the athlete, the favorite teacher, etc. Then, there are those in every community who are often overlooked and invisible to most. Who is it in your community? The single mother struggling to raise 3 kids on her own?

Deliver VBS to Senior Adults and Shut-ins

Reflecting on the summers of my childhood, I always looked forward to Vacation Bible School (VBS). Complete with fruit punch and cookies, VBS was much less about “school” and much more about growing in my relationship with Christ. The weeklong event typically took place within the walls of our local church with familiar faces and dedicated volunteers.

In today’s world, VBS has happily taken on a revised schedule, with many churches choosing to offer an abbreviated VBS at night or on a weekend. But what about stepping beyond the church walls to personally deliver the gospel to an often-overlooked sector of our society? What if we rolled up our sleeves, packed up our resources, and took VBS on the road to a local nursing home or senior center? We just might discover an untapped dimension to fulfilling the Great Commission while experiencing a whole lot of joy in the process!
