Where were you @ 11 oclock on Sunday?

I have been bouncing an idea around in my head. What if my family and I wander around our neighborhood during the corporate worship service hour and look for folks walking their dog, washing their car, cleaning their yard or whatever and tell them all about what Jesus has done, is doing, and will do for us and listen for ways to serve them? I'm thinking it would be a great way to get to know our neighbors and maybe advance the kingdom. What do you think?


  1. Is it a good idea to share the hope of Christ with others? Do woodchucks chuck wood?

  2. You might like a post that I wrote a few years ago called "The church meets here."


  3. Bobby,

    This is a great idea. Try it and post about it.

  4. I love this! My wife and I stopped "attending church" a few years ago so we could start doing this.

    Also, we had a conversation just yesterday with some church people who said they want to serve in their community more, but simply don't have the time. When I asked how often they go to church, they go twice on Sunday, and 2-3 nights the rest of the week. They spend about 10-15 hours in church per week!

  5. micah,

    you made me smile :-)


    I read that post. Thanks for sharing. We may do something like that one day although part of me feels like I shouldn't be advertising that way. I dunno. Gotta give it some thought. Thanks for spurring me on.


    I plan to. If I can brave the cold and the temptation of slothful leisure, I'll be sure to give it a go and share my experiences here.


    thanks for commenting! I'm very interested in reading about your experiences. Have you written about it somewhere?
