Ways to Live on Mission this Summer

Summer is here!  Here are a few ways to intentionally spend time with neighbors, co-workers, and your community this summer.

  • Fire Pit Nights.  Plan on hosting a weekly evening around the fire.  Invite neighbors, co-workers, friends from church, etc.  There is something about sitting around a fire that appeals to both men and women!  Ask open ended questions as you sit around the fire. Plan on having supplies to make epic s’mores or mountain pies.
  • Spend some time at the local ball field.  Chances are you know someone who is playing softball, baseball, soccer, etc.  Go watch a game.  We’ve spent lots of Saturdays at the ball fields watching our friends from church play while getting to know others in the community.
  • Walk your dog. Walking your dog is a great way to connect with others in your neighborhood.  Stop and say hello. Get to know names. Start to build connections!  
  • Host a summer game night. Make a huge charcuterie board and invite guests to come enjoy the evening.  Set up games in the backyard or set up tables with a variety of games inside your home.  Listen for people’s story as they interact with each other.
  • Host a neighborhood Bible Study.  Plan on meeting with your neighbors to go through The Loved Bible Foundations Workbook or pick a study to go through from our summer study suggestions.
  • Serve.  Help an older neighbor with some yard work.  Organize a work day to serve a widow in your church or the community. Volunteer some time serving at a local non-profit.
