2018 Outreach Overview

This year God lead us to move away from an events based outreach strategy to a more ongoing grassroots approach. The theme God gave us was reaching our neighbours and I think we’ve done just that. Our kids were able to get involved as we establish a new food bank with a couple of big food drives. This has subsequently become an ongoing outreach that supplies food and the practical news of God’s love to those in need on a weekly basis. Our youth have also gotten out into the community to show God’s love through litter picking, bag packing, old folks home visits, child minding and carolling. We have also been present in our community reaching our neighbours with the gospel during key times of celebration such as the Shotts Gala Day, Halloween with the Eden Bus and most recently at Christmas. We also had a great time and and incredible turn out at our Texas BBQ family fun day. Through it all we have strived to exemplify Christ’s approach to missions – be with people, show love, be the hands and feet of God and share the good news of the Gospel. I’m truly thankful to God for the amazing opportunities He has given us, blown away by the hard work of our community of believers and have a sense of expectancy for the year ahead. All the best for 2019 – Dave, Outreach Coordinator
