The Big Give

here is an idea that a church of any size can do in its community.

We wanted to plan an event that was all about serving our community, so we planned this event where we would give away new backpacks full of school supplies, free back-to-school haircuts, free food, free photos/fingerprinting for the kids, and lots of other fun things (inflatable games, facepainting, cartoons on the big screen, great door prizes, etc…).

Read the rest of Jeff’s post to see his doubts about the event and how it turned out. Inspiring stuff.

  1. Geyer Springs did this while we were there and I believe it was an annual event. They were doing a lot of things right.

  2. indeed they were. Did they have the face painting and games in order to make it an event?
