After lunch, I usually take 5-10 minutes and walk around our building. This time is reserved for prayer for co-workers and anything I may have on my mind. Anway…. on today's lap around the building, I got some interesting ideas and wanted to share them with everyone to get some feedback.
1. – offer to watch neighborhood kids one or two days a month while the parents go out and run errands, etc…. I'm thinking something like "We'll watch your kids from 10am – 2pm on the first and third Thursdays of the month.
2. – I offer to spend 1 Sat a month helping whoever with yard work, chores, etc….
3. – Offer computer help to the people as they need it (call and we'll arrange a time kind of thing).
4. – Game night. Have a neighborhood game night once a month at our place. We live across the street from a Jewish center or a church we may be able to borrow space from if it gets too big.
We would introduce this to the community (I'm talking 1 or 2 blocks initially) by passing out flyers, explaing what we are doing, and inviting them all over for a community cookout in Mid September.
What do you guys think?
