What is Street Connect?
During this season, so many of us are spending the majority of our time at home. What if we used this as an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighbors, through prayer, encouragement, and connection? Street Connect is a simple outreach plan to do just that, in a COVID-safe way.
When you register, you will receive a letter template that you can fill out and send to your neighbors. This will provide you a simple way to reach out, learn more about them, and discover how you can pray for them. We will also provide you with emails that you can personalize and send, which will have a weekly verse and a prayer.
This is a wonderful way to demonstrate our mission statement and our love for Christ and others to those around us. If you are interested in participating, please register below.
Not only does our mission statement say we aim to “impact or neighbors near and far…” but we have a heart for outreach, evidenced by the overwhelming response of members whenever a need is announced. We are excited for this opportunity to provide the present need for connection and unity which the name “Community” means!
We assume there are people on every street who you do not know. The only way to reach them is to go to their house and get the information. To make it easy, we have created an “intro letter” template that you can simply drop off at your neighbors’ house. This letter explains your heart and purpose, and invites them to join in.
Once your neighbors have responded, email or text a weekly prayer list/newsletter to everyone who provided their information. To make this easy we have created a weekly prayer and scripture each week. You can use this template heading and then list the prayer requests, praises, and street news below it. We already have 2 weeks available and will stay ahead so that you can provide a weekly list. We believe it will be most effective if you send it the same day each week.
