This past year (2015), the DR Outreach Team decided to focus on offering a variety of opportunities to activate the members of our congregation and connect them with members of the community. In doing so, one of goals was to offer at least one outreach opportunity each month in which our members could easily take part. Intentionally designed to create face-to-face contacts with the people of our community, some of the newest outreach opportunities have included:
• Distributing school supplies, Door Hangers, smoke detector batteries, bags of rock salt, Valentine’s Day flowers, and gift cards (at a local food pantry) are among some of the newest opportunities to meet people where they’re at, provide a service, and introduce ourselves.
Of course, we haven’t abandoned what we’ve done in the past. We also look forward to hosting an on-site Mission Conferences and growth opportunities, as well as continuing our involvement in some of the local annual community events/activities/missions (i.e. Lake Country Fest, the Operation Christmas Child Packing Party, the Passionate Believers Conference, the SOS Center of Milwaukee, etc.).
As we look to the future, the Outreach Team would like to encourage and invite you to find one of the planned outreach events and join us as we look to introduce ourselves to our neighbors. And, if you have any new ideas that would help us connect with others, we welcome your input and we would love to have you join the team.
