Community

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35 NIV

[SOCIAL GATHERINGS]

Organizing informal social activities that focus on building authentic relationships with pre-Christians in a non-threatening environment.

 

Practical Community ideas or insights:

  • Pass out hot chocolate on cold days and bottled water on hot days.
  • Promote random acts of kindness on campus using TAG resources below.
  • Anything with food will draw students. *Note* Most students are hungry at 10:30am because they don’t eat breakfast.
  • Host a Thanksgiving meal for the college basketball team before tournaments.
  • Host an informal night of worship with games and giveaways.
  • Krunk Kab - Organize a bus or van to pick up drunk students on campus. Give them a free ride home and show them the unconditional love of Christ. Talk with your authorities before attempting this one!
