Reach Out with a Cup of Joe

I read this morning about a church in our listening area that is doing a unique outreach to their community. Lilburn Christian Church has a Drive-Thru Coffee Ministry each Monday morning. What a great way to meet a need and minister at the same time. I wish more churches would come out of their buildings and meet needs in their local community.

As graduate students at Regent University, my wife and I attended Virginia Beach Vineyard Church. We did a lot of common place ministry throughout the area. During afternoon drive-time we stood in the medians and gave out ice cold bottles of water with information on our church on the label. During Christmas, the church rented a store front in the local mall and did baby sitting for parents who wanted to go shopping without having to watch their children at the same time.

These are just a few ideas to serve our mission fields right outside our church doors. Just something to think about
