I was reading the message boards on the kidology site and came across this post from Todd McKeever. He posed a great question that I believe is worth all of our time. What does creative outreach look like?
Here is what he had to say:
I have been wondering for some time and will throw this out to everyone here as well.
I ran a blog post a while back asking for creative outreach ideas that people have done, and I was amazed at the few that I heard about. I have also asked here on the site before about the same topic and still very amazed by the little response. I also serve as a contributing editor for K magazine and oversee the “Bridge Builders” part of the magazine where I get to work with churches all over the world and I am sad to say, it appears that outreaches may be decreasing some.
That is why I am writing here again as well. Do you feel that outreaches are decreasing? Maybe everyone just does a yearly VBS, Halloween alternative, 4th of July or Camps.
Are these the only venues (important non the less)that your church chooses to do outreaches? Do you do other ideas? If so what? If not, why?
