07 May Knocking on Doors Before Easter
Two weeks prior to Easter, Living Water UB (Clarksburg, W. Va.) began the process of knocking on every door in the city–all 7000 of them. Pastor Chris Mullett writes, “We began with the 415 homes closest to the church. Twenty-four adults and ten youth members participated in the visitation. We bought a packet of flower seeds for each of the homes to be visited and attached an invitation to our Easter service.
“Our Easter service was our largest attendance in our 28-month existence. We had 140, many of them visiting for the first time. Our next neighborhood outreach, in May, will target getting people to church for Memorial Day. This summer we will target a neighborhood with an invitation for children to attend a Bible school in a local park.”
