We decided to serve the crowds by providing ice cream. So we grabbed a few teens, a huge cooler, the ice cream, wooden spoons and our eye-popping connect card.
The teens went to the north, south, east west corner of the park and served the ice cream. It was a huge hit. The reality show film crew also were served. It was a great outreach. The buzz was buzzing.
Observation…Teens rather than adults doing the outreach was an instant connection. Questions like… Are you a skater? Why are you doing this? Who are you guys? What’s up? Word. Were common. A great time showing God’s love in a practical way.
