The Church Has Left the Building

On Sunday, May 30th, McDowell Mountain Community Church will try something we have never done before. We are using the morning for a day of service to our community. This means we will have no worship service, but will worship with service to others. We are encouraging our people to find different opportunities to serve around the city from 10-11am (not including travel time). We would like you to brainstorm different ministry ideas for this Sunday. It could be plugging into one of our current in town ministries (Brooks Academy, PHX Rescue Mission, Americans for Better Tomorrow etc.) or seeking something new. We would like to pursue what God has put on your heart. We believe this is a practical way to love others with no strings attached and spread the good news of Christ. Here are a couple of organizations that might help with ideas: http://servolution.org/ideas/ and www.servantevangelism.com (ex. hospital visits, passing out water at local parks, food distribution).

Here is what you can do: Identify a ministry project and project leader, email jared@mcdowellmountianchurch.com with the details.

Let's start the discussion:

  1. i am so pumped for this. can't wait to see how creative people get with serving. we're bringing serving back. (reminds me of this video from a church we know... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNc2V-tt7g4)
    here are three ideas i had:
    1. get a local grocery store to donate bread and milk that is nearing expiration. go to a low-income apartment complex and pass it out to people who may need it.
    2. ask a local grocery store if you can stand out front for 2 hours on sunday morning, asking people to fill 1 extra bag with non-perishables while they shop. collect the bags when they leave the store. deliver the bags to one of the local food pantries.
    3. give matt a pedicure. with flip flop season in full swing, he needs to have nice nails.

    come on...what ideas do you have? the church has left the building.
