Do Good Campaign
Sunday, November 8 | 10:30am - 11:30am |
"As we have opportunity, let’s do good to all people”
As you begin…
- Look out for the opportunities. God will provide you with numerous opportunities to share. You only have to be attentive.
- Be willing to help complete strangers. There may not always be an opportunity for you to share with family or friends, but you can always help those who are in need, even if they are complete strangers.
- Give freely without expecting anything in return. Many people will ask you how they can reimburse you for your kindness. You can share the “Do Good” idea with them. In this time of struggle, we want to be about bringing the hope that only Jesus can bring.
- Even small acts count. It doesn’t matter how much you have to give. All that matters is that you are willing to give and spread the word
