Week 2: Reaching Out — We’re Commissioned To Reach Out Together

Verse to Remember: “Be wise in the way you act with people who are not believers, making the most of every opportunity.” — Colossians 4:5 (NCV)
[Read More] thoughts on weekly Session 2 of Rick Warren’s 40 Days of Community, as well as lists of community services in Elk Grove.

This week our focus shifts from the theoretical to the practical: how do we actually reach out as a small group? The challenge is to find some sort of service project to tangibly demonstrate love towards our community. Our model is Jesus feeding the five thousand: like the disciples, he is challenging us to give beyond our human ability to meet the genuine needs of real, hurting people.

Here’s a list of some possible Community Resources that we might be able to work with to find people who could benefit from our efforts:
