Pastor Dan Simmons of New Community Baptist Church of Strongsville (Ohio) facilitated nights of community outreach for 2009 GARBC Conference attendees. On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings before Conference worship services, adults, teens, and children distributed cookies and invitations to neighborhood homes, inviting the residents to attend “Love Thy Neighbor Sunday” that was held the following Sunday in two area churches.
Pastor Dan shares the following report about the outreach effort:
Many churches helped and got people involved in evangelism through making cookies. The majority of cookies came from a forty-mile radius.
“Love Thy Neighborhood Sunday” celebrations took place in the target churches on Sunday, June 28th. Please pray that guests attending those services will continue to seek Christ and receive Him as Savior.
Special Offer: If you are interested in doing a similar outreach, Pastor Dan is packaging the outline, cookie distribution strategy, graphics, and “Love Thy Neighborhood Sunday” planning for those who request it.
