Do Something Series Arc

 —  November 17, 2011 — 4 Comments

This past weekend we started a series called Do Something – we did something similar a couple of years ago with great success and thought it was time to bring it back again. Here’s the 2-week series arc where we’re hoping to take students:

WEEK 1: Christmas Shoe Boxes
This weekend we teach about the needs right here in Orange County. Santa Ana is one of the poorest cities in America, and they are our neighbor. We’ll pack shoe boxes for our Food Bank to give away during the holidays as people come in to get free groceries. At the end of each service we planned to take a group photo that would end up on Facebook and get tagged by everyone as well.

WEEK 2: Fallen Soldiers, Persecuted Church, HIV/AIDS
The second week of the series the plan is to have students write letters to the children of soldiers who have been killed in the war. We are bringing in a chaplain to speak to the students as well. After that we’ll highlight the persecuted church and have a guest speaker share about HIV/AIDS and what students can do to help in our community.

  1. What I like most about this series idea is that it takes saving out of the “special event” field and crosses it over into the “everyday ministry” field. If nothing else, it shos students that you don’t differentiate. I’m curious, do you have a strategy for following up if, say, week two’s topics spark interest for students? Is there a way you can stoke that fire?

  2. Hey Josh…would you be willing to share how you’re going about getting the letters to the kids? We are planning to do a similar thing this weekend with our students, but sending them to soldiers. I think that our students will relate a lot more to sending them to kids…let me know if there is an organization you’re using that we could use as well. Thanks!
