A simple bottle of water can mean so much on hot summer day! With hot summer days and bumper to bumper 5 o’clock traffic, we have found that simply bring ice cold bottles of water to a congested intersection, people will be truly blessed. This outreach has become one of the most reliable and consistent outreaches that we do, but is not safe for children. By simply packing bottled water into an ice chest and having a fired up team of volunteers, this outreach can be done year around and at just about at any local traffic jam!
Outreaches at local colleges where you can hand out a wide variety of items weekly or bi-weekly. These items range from gum or water to granola bars. During exam week, you may also see us passing out “bluebooks”, pencils and many other exam neccessities. In order to reach out to the faculty, you can even give Starbucks cards to some of the faculty.
This outreach is where you bring the water outreach to the bar scene. The basic layout looks like this. When the bars close at 2am a group waits outside the bars with ice chests on wheels that are filled with water and Capri suns. At first this outreach can seem a bit awkward but it has truly become one of our outreach team’s favorite outreaches. We have seen more people come to Christ from this outreach than any other.
Reaching out to widows is one of the few outreaches that are directly mentioned in the bible (James 1:27), and is possibly one of the simplest outreaches that you can do. There are many ways you can reach out to widows like bringing them a lunch every week, cutting their grass, home repairs, but one of the powerful ways to reach your widows is simply sitting with them and talking. Many widows are lonely and just want to find purpose in life. By simply hanging out and talking with them you will quickly find that even though u are reaching them, they infact are impacting you far more than you could ever have thought.
We actually combined this idea along with the water outreach. We went out to a busy intersection and offered free windshield washing as well as free water, free hugs and free compliments to those who passed by.
This is the outreach to give food to the construction workers lining in the morning waiting for their morning shift. A great way to impact their lives and to show that someone cares for them.
Everyday we see workers lining up waiting for the work shift in the morning. Our team, Dreamworkers PlaceofHope, prepared and brought food to the site where the workers are. We gave them free breakfast and afterwards share to them the love of Jesus.
Standing in front of a car cleaning area with a bunch of people. Equipped with everything which is necessary to make a difference in this world ( serving attitude, willing heart, helping hands and a smile on your face).
Wash their car for free from the in- and outside…and very important SMILE while doing it!
At the end: Give them a rose (for the women) and an air fresher, or something little for the car (for the men) and say them that JESUS will not only clean their car, but far more their life from the in- and outside!
