About the one, for the one. The goal here is to get out within a 1 mile radius of where our church meets. This is an outreach at its core, but differed with very specific methods of reaching those with 1 mile of the church. The stripped down approach is to make friends, because friends will easily come to church.
Romans 10:14-15 NIV
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[
8×8 Block Adoption
8×8 blocks will be established before hand, and 1-2 leaders will be in charge of gathering a team and then ministering specifically to that section of the city. It will be their job to understand the needs of that section, to pray & fast for that section, as well as organize block parties, collaborations and activities to reach the community at their need.
Door to Door
The approach is to go door to door, and not preach, teach or convince someone to go to church, but rather to find out the need of that household. If it is prayer, obviously to pray for them. But, if it is food, then to work with Feed my Sheep to get a bag of groceries to their residence. If it is yard work, then to provide a day to take care of them. This strategy fits within the 8×8 block adoption, The desire is to meet the need and not try to indoctrinate the household.
As 8×8 blocks are adopted, a once quarterly block party would be organized for those living in that area. The church will assist in providing hot dogs, hamburgers, games, bounce houses and other activities to reach out to that section of the city.
Worship in the Park
Twice a year, a worship in the park event will be coordinated, where church in the park will happen and we will give away food with collaboration from Feed My Sheep, musical performances, drama skits and other items to those in the park.
Drive By Prayers
In coordination with the 8×8 block adoption, we will drive through the neighborhoods, led by the Holy Spirit and pray for each house and each block.
Sporting Event Giveaways
Handing out snack, gatorade & others items to families in sporting event parks. For families with children who play both indoor & outdoor sports, we will bring refreshments to them with invitations to our church service.
This will be vital to the success on the ONE approach. Various collaboration, specifically with the city of Adelanto, Feed my Sheep, other church organizations and government bodies to minister to the needs of the individual.
Summer Family Fun Day
One day in the summer, either a local school, where we will have games, 3 on 3 basketball tournaments, community activities such as movies and such will be some of the activities offered to the community.
Family Fun Days
3-4 times a year, following service we will host a family fun day, inviting all new families to come and hang out after church service.
Give away backpacks with schools within our 1 mile radius goal. Backpacks will include school supplies, along with random one having a gift card for $50, for parents to use for the school year.
