The Darkside doesn’t stand a chance!

Love your neighbors. Change the world.

Next to loving God, Jesus says that loving our neighbors is our most important calling (Matt 22:36-40). This Christmas season, turn make your home a “lighthouse” for your neighborhood by blessing your neighbors in practical ways. You’ll brighten their lives, open new doors, and cover the city with kindness.

Set the stage:

1. Pin a tack at your address on our Lighthouse Map this Sunday at Surprise.
2. Post a Surprise Church yard sign in your yard or apartment window.
3. Pray daily for everyone on your street or in your neighborhood, asking God to enrich their lives and to
show you opportunities to share His love with them.
4. Walk – Take routine prayer walks on your street. Got kids? Take ’em with you! See Pastor Matt’s example below!
    >Plan on a neighborhood prayer walk on Wed, Dec 21 (longest night of the year) at sunset (4:57 pm).

Shine the light:

1. Connect personally with your neighbors (drop cookies off, shovel snow, help with Xmas lights, etc.).
2. Plan a social gathering for your neighborhood.
3. Listen carefully to your neighbors’ life stories and felt needs. Take genuine interest in them.
7. Offer to help with and pray for any felt needs a neighbor shares with you. 
8. Share your faith story  if and when God opens up doors to do so.
