Why is it important for us to be active in our neighborhood? I find when we open our door and let people in or let ourselves out, even a simple hello can make someone’s day.

How do I meet my neighbors?

Let’s keep it simple. Here is an interview of what one person did.

Here are a few more ideas.

1. Go for a walk in your neighborhood. Say hi to people. Become familiar with the people around you.

2. Use what you have – A touch, a smile, a listening ear, food, your TV. Everyone has one of these items.

3. Keep an “open chair” at the kitchen table and invite family, friends, neighbors, churched or the unchurched to join you for a meal.

  • Eat with people as often as you can, wherever and whenever you can. People engage and interact better with food on their plate than at any other time.
  • Listen to people as much as possible, as often as possible. Don’t preach to them. No one likes that.
  • Invite your friends, family or neighbors and do something nice for a neighbor, especially one in need.
  • Don’t try to solve everyone’s problems. The more you listen, touch, and serve, the greater impact you will have.

With the rising costs of gas, church buildings, real estate and staff salaries, the old ways of doing things no longer fit the practicalities of our changing culture.

The good news is you can experience Jesus with friends, family or neighbors without leaving your block or home.  No buildings to build, offerings to take, no special qualifications needed.  Being a follower of Christ is not about meetings but being part of practical real life experiences in the Christian faith.  “The Church is not where you go, but who you are”  Change the world in the neighborhood you live in.
