Launching Pad for the Gospel {to our neighbors pt2}

This week I'm focusing several posts on how our homes can be a launching pad for the Gospel to our neighbors. Yesterday's post explained some ways and todays post will be even more practical! Whenever someone new comes into your neighborhood or even if you just moved in make up some quick bread and run it over and introduce your family. This is something I have my kiddos help me with so they are part of the process.

Breads I usually make are banana nut bread, zucchini bread or strawberry bread. After making the bread I try to fancy it up a bit. I found this "Hello Neighbor" printable from Joy Ever After which was too cute!

Do you have a system you have to build relationships with your neighbors through food?
What foods do you tend to take over to new neighbors?

  1. Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween any holidays are great times to reach out with small gifts of food. At Valentine's Day this year, we happened to go to Krispy Kreme where they gave us Valentine's Day cards for free. We made up little baggies of wrapped candy and stuck a card onto the bag and delivered them to our close neighbors. It definitely warms relationships.

    Don't forget your Christian neighbors in all of the food giving. My Christian neighbors have been an invaluable help to me over the years. Encourage them as well.

    Thank you for helping us to have a missions mindset in our neighborhood.

  2. Love, love. What a beautiful expression of sharing God's love. I call it sheltering. God calls it "loving our neighbors as ourselves."
