What if your church showed up in your neighborhood?
What would happen if several hundred people from Seneca Creek showed up in your neighborhood? Or in the parking lot of your workplace? Or in the cafeteria of your school? And what if we all showed up with our work clothes on, ready to jump in and help? What would you want us to do? Clean up the local park? Paint the home of a single mom? Fill the pantry of an out-of-work family? Feed the homeless guy that stands at the corner?
That’s the question behind Ignite Week (Oct. 16-22). Where can we serve in order to meet a need in our city? And the answer lies in each of us. Maybe you know exactly how you’d answer. If so, be sure to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your idea, so we can try to make sure it happens during Ignite Week. Then again, maybe you don’t know what you’d want us to do. If that’s your situation, would you please take one minute each day, and ask God to open your eyes to a need that he’d like you to help meet? Then, email us (email@example.com) to let us know about the project.
Together, we’re attempting to involve 1,000 people during Ignite Week. So far we have about 34 projects. It would be great to get another 46 for a total of 80! Together, we can make it happen. Together we can share the goodness of God, and ignite HOPE the week of October 16-22.
And if you’d like to serve in one of the many projects we already have scheduled, be sure to sign up online .
For more info about WHY we’re doing it this way this year (instead of Ignite Sunday), please see my letter from last week. And then join us Sunday as we continue our series, “Road Signs: Where Is God Leading You?”
