Saturday Night Outreach
Lately, we’ve been trying to zero in on some good ways to share the gospel with Harrison County, WV. Do we expect an unbeliever to show up at church on Sunday morning? Do we go door-to-door and invite them? Do we pass out flyers at the mall? Do we simply invite our friends? If they do show up on Sunday morning, is the ‘service’ appropriate for them?
Perhaps the title of this post gives away a little too much. We finally decided to have an ‘event’ every Saturday night throughout the summer. We currently plan to rotate between having a film and theology (film and spirituality or reel theology … you get the idea) and an improv comedy night.
Film and Theology night is planned to be set up like James Harleman does at Mars Hill. Watch the movie and afterwards have someone talk about the movie and its spiritual influences and consequences.
The improv comedy night is much more simple. Enjoy improv comedy (think – Who’s line is it anyway?) for an hour or so and then present the gospel in 5 or 10 minutes.
We are still in the ‘come and see’ stage, but we are identifying common ground to communicate the gospel and meet our community.
I plan to keep blogging about resources that I find in case any one else is interested in pursuing some of these same avenues.
