The road to trauma recovery and racial justice is long. Only in Christ can the body of Christ can stay the course until it is “on earth as it is in heaven."

JESUS SUMMER NEIGHBORHOOD OUTREACH INITIATIVES

Adopt your neighborhood through a “Neighborhood Saturation Festival.”

  1. Prayerfully plan a neighborhood outreach event. (BBQ, Block party, arts festival, pizza fest, book fair…etc. We will supply outreach books&tracts)
  2. Use the training in the Saturate Playbook to prepare your congregation.
  3. Send your congregation (door to door) into the neighborhood to invite and pray for 1000-4000 households. (Resource allocation will mirror the number of homes adopted)
  4. Begin building a community where there are “no sheep without a shepherd.”
  5. Establish outreach coordinators and plan follow up through seasonal or monthly prayer visitation.

 Suggested Letter For Your Neighborhood

Not everyone will be home so create a personal letter from the church or pastor similar to this:
_______________

Dear Neighbor,

We’d like to invite you to a neighborhood_________________  (BBQ, Festival, PizzaFest, Book Fair, Ice Cream Festival, International Feast…etc). This has been a very difficult year of loss and community isolation. We would love you to join us as we seek to rebuild connectedness in our neighborhood.

If you are unable to participate in this event, please know that we are a community church, so  it’s YOUR church,  whatever we can do to be here for you in this difficult season, count us in!

Please also let us know if you have any neighbors that are in trouble or crisis, together, we can rebuild what has been lost.

With Love,

Pastor Jones from “We Love You Community Church”

Once your event information is submitted, a team member will contact you with the next steps.

The goal of Jesus Week is to create a catalyst for neighborhood adoption.  Join us as we seek to mobilize 3000 churches to adopt 1000 or more homes in their neighborhood. This is 3 million homes (average 4 people per home)  = 12 million people.

More than the population of NYC!

  • I agree to utilize all of these resources for the purpose of sharing the Gospel in word and deed. I understand the goals of Saturate NYC that churches throughout our region would strategically serve together to adopt Neighborhoods, Schools and Housing Projects as their areas of Gospel Responsibility until there are no more sheep without a shepherd in our city. I will also take pictures, videos of the distribution of the various items received and provide a report for Saturate NYC at urbanhopenyc@gmail.com. I will hashtag and acknowledge SaturateNYC through social media and email. I will pray for Urban Hope, the parent ministry of Saturate NYC and Jesus Week and prayerfully consider becoming an Urban Hope Partner through a one time gift or monthly support at UrbanHopeNYC.org *
