How Your Small Church Can Do a Great Community Service Day (Video)

Share 200cServe Day.

Share Day.

Community Service Day.

Whatever you call it, getting your congregation to take a Sunday afternoon to go out into the community to serve people in practical, agenda-free ways is valuable to your church and your community.

This video was recorded at a recent Share Day at our church, and it can give you some seed ideas for doing a day of your own.

What’s not mentioned in the video is the schedule for the day:

  • Have church in the morning
  • Eat a potluck lunch after church
  • Serve your community
  • Meet at the church for dinner, worship and sharing stories of the day

Any church of any size can do this. 

It doesn’t matter how big your church is. It matters how big your heart is.

Here are links to the two organizations we helped in the video (aside from Fountain Valley City Hall).

We want to hear from you. Yes, you!

  1. This has so inspiried me Karl. I showed it to my wife and we began thiking of ways to do this in my small town. I forwarded this video to my people who are on facebook, and intending to shareit with my leaders. I received one response which completely floored me. One person, responded by saying’Pastor, we don’t need another program we need Jesus.’ And then quoted 1 Chronicles 7:14. In thirty plus years of ministry I have never had that kind of response. I guess Jesus really didnt mean it when He said we are the light of the world and salt of the earth.
