Small things done with great love will change the world ...
Servant Evangelism is all about the "little" things! From handing out local business discount cards to eager parade-goers to providing bottled water to Relay for Life cancer survivors, our Servant Evangelism team is changing the world one person at a time!
Servant Evangelism currently organizes three outreach ministries: Pay It Forward, Serve Fest, and Summer Outreach BBQs.
Pay It Forward
We are partnering with the Family Bible Church congregation and every other month generous Oak Harbor Assembly of God families prepare boxes for our transitional housing unit, Marjie’s House. Marjie’s House is a secured facility and is a safe haven where women and their minor children are given the opportunity to put their lives back together.
Serve Fest events are designed to get as many Oak Harbor Assembly of God individuals and families involved as possible. Some people love to directly minister to strangers and others are more comfortable donating items. We need both to make every event successful. The following are events we have hosted:
- “Pop Forward” Daylight Savings Time microwave popcorn reminders in March
- Holland Happening Parade in April
- Teacher Appreciation Baskets in May
- Bottled water for the Relay for Life event in June
- Bottled water for the Oak Harbor High School senior graduation trip in June
- Church-wide Rummage Sale in July
- National Night Out in August
- “Treat the Parents” in October
- Local law enforcement and fire department appreciation baskets in December
Summer Outreach BBQs
At the beginning of the year, we select three low-income housing areas to bless with a Summer Outreach BBQ, which provides hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, soda, water, door prizes + $100 in gift cards, toys for kids, and an outreach bag for all residents (bags include: 4-pack of toilet paper, laundry detergent, and bath soap inside one reusable grocery bag).
Together we are making a difference one box and water bottle at a time!
