Beat the Summer Slump!

Posted by Outreach, Inc. 4 years ago 0

Summer Slump6 easy ways to engage your church and community in the summer.  

1. Challenge your church to host summer neighborhood block parties.

2. Think leadership development. Encourage team leaders to invest in others one-on-one.

3. Go beyond the weeklong vacation Bible school and offer children’s activities each week.

4. Ask small groups to take the summer off. Challenge them to devote one weekend a month to a service project.

5. Start a “See You at the Movies” message series. Encourage people to invite friends and neighbors. Each message is a “one-off,” so people can miss a weekend or two.

6. Recruit bicyclists for ministry. Are there cyclists in your church? Let them know about a unique ministry opportunity they can easily adapt. Every week, a group of cyclists from Newsong Church based in Irvine, Calif., ride their bikes to local parks and distribute lunch sacks while developing ongoing relationships with individuals in the homeless community.
