At Campus Church, our mission is to live the adventure filled good life in Jesus together every day. We believe that this is done in community with each other and with our world…and that it always involves joining God in God’s mission in the world. For the next 30 days, we want to invite you to do just that. This might require us to flex some new muscles, or take some actions we haven’t taken in a while. It might require us to speed up or slow down…to take a risk, or to learn to allow God to open doors. Whatever happens in the next 30 days, it will be an adventure into the good life! We hope you’ll join us!

Week 1

Tuesday, September 1:

 

Blessing Tuesday

 

Be a blessing to someone today! Bless someone with a note, text, phone call, or a visit. Send flowers or cookies. Tell someone what you love about them. Encourage someone that you see them and the work they are doing through this pandemic. Check on someone who might be lonely or overwhelmed. It could be someone you know well or a neighbor you’ve only said hi to. It doesn’t have to be big, but it should be intentional and thoughtful.

Wednesday, September 2:


Reflect and Step


Take some time to reflect on the following questions:

​​​​​​​

1. Where have you seen or experienced God this week?

2. What do you think God is up to?

3. What is God asking you to do?


Take a step toward what you believe God is asking you to do. Maybe you believe God wants you to be on mission in your neighborhood. Introduce yourself to a neighbor today. Maybe there is someone specific on your heart. Call them and ask how you can pray for them. This could be a baby step or a giant leap, but take some kind of action today based on how you are being led to join in God’s mission.


*Bonus: We believe that mission is meant to be done in community. So, as you reflect and take a step, involve someone else. Tell someone where you see God working and how you plan to take a step to join God. Invite them to join you.

Thursday, September 3:

 

Prayer Walk

 

We believe God is working in your neighborhood and God is inviting you to join him. Take a walk outside and pray for your neighbors as you walk your street. Pray for neighbors you know and neighbors you don’t. Pray for health (mental, spiritual and physical) in this season. Ask God to reveal to you God’s heart for your neighborhood and to reveal to you how you might get to be participate in God’s work. Be intentional about saying hello to neighbors (from a safe distance) who you see on your walk. They might be exactly who God is putting in your path.

 

It doesn’t have to be your neighborhood. You could prayer walk your office, school, grocery store, park… anywhere you go on a regular basis.

Friday, September 4:

 

Faith Friday

 

Rest. Take a break and believe that God is up to something… and God works even when we’re not working.

 

People find rest in many different ways. Do what works for you. Here are some ideas to consider:

-   Fast from social media… and believe that God works even when I’m not working.

-   Treat yo’ self (eat desert or take a nap)… and believe that God works even when I’m not working.

-   Sit on your porch with a cup of coffee and be still… and believe that God works even when I’m not working.

Saturday, September 5:


Serve Saturday


Matthew 25:40 says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” When we serve others, we can expect to experience Christ.


Make a flyer for your neighborhood or post in your neighborhood facebook group letting your neighbors know that you will be collecting food for Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries (in Norcross). Include this list of items NCM currently needs:


  • Cereal
  • Jelly
  • Canned Mixed veggies
  • Canned Chicken
  • Soup


Ask neighbors to leave their donations on their porch on a certain day when you’ll be coming around to pick up. You can create your own flyer or use the one linked below.


We will have a food drive at Campus for Norcross, Co-Op on Sunday, September 20. You can bring food collected from your neighborhood drive to church Sunday morning or drop them off in the drive through from 2-4PM that afternoon.


Remember, this is both a chance to support NCM and families in need and a way for you to connect with your neighbors.

Week 2

Sunday, September 6:

 

Reflect

 

Take some time today to reflect on the past week. Here are some questions to guide your refection:

 

  1. What did God do?
  2. Who did God put in your life?
  3. When were you brave?
  4. Where did you fail?
  5. What did you learn?
  6. What surprised you?

 

Practice a posture of listening and discernment. Don’t rush this process. Spend a few minutes in silence between each question and listen. Let you mind remember details. Enjoy a sense of wonder as you are reminded that we often miss what God is doing in the moment.

Monday, September 7:

 

Breath Prayer

 

“Lord, take me with you.”

 

Practice breath prayer as a way of resting in God’s love, being present to him, and slowing your thoughts down to let Jesus set the pace and agenda of your day. Take a few minutes to sit silently and slow your thoughts. Once you settle into a rhythm, begin to turn each breath into a prayer. One breath at a time, say, “Lord, take me with you.” Breathe in, “Lord”. Breath Out, “Take me with you.”

 

Practice breathing and praying throughout the day. Let yourself say it so many times that praying becomes as natural as breathing. As you breathe and pray, be constantly reminded that God is moving, and you are invited to go with God.

Social Distance Together!

 

Matthew 25:40 says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” When we serve others, we can expect to experience Christ.

 

Host an outdoor cook out or an evening around your fire pit. Invite someone who you know needs community in their life right now. It could be neighbors, a coworker or a friend. It could be one family or more depending on what you feel comfortable with. Let them know how you intend to practice social distancing when you invite them so they can feel comfortable and know what to expect. Set up outdoor games if you have them, but if not, no big deal. It doesn’t have to be fancy, it’s just an opportunity for you to serve and connect with people in your life who need community. Send them a note the next day letting them know you enjoyed getting to know them or getting to spend time with them.

 

*Bonus- Before they leave, ask how you can be praying for them in this season.

Practice breathing and praying throughout the day. Let yourself say it so many times that praying becomes as natural as breathing. Every time you see another human, try to breathe in, “Christ in you” and breath out, “Christ in us,” as you interact with that person. Let this prayer remind you to re-humanize each person you come in contact with.

Put together a care package for an assisted living home. Many people living in assisted living care facilities are very lonely in the wake of Covid. Let’s do something to add some cheer while they are not able to have visitors. Make a bag or envelope with a few care items and most importantly, some encouraging notes. Here are some ideas of things you could put in your care package. Feel free to be creative in any way that you want!

 

  • Encouraging handwritten notes
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Kleenex
  • Mints or hard candy (sugar free)
  • Small hand sanitizer
  • Small games that can be played by an individual (with large print)
  • Cuties (easy to peel)
  • Peanut butter crackers

 

Be as creative as you like! If you have a connection to an assisted living facility, feel free to drop them off. If not, drop them by Campus Church  and we will deliver them!

 

****ALSO, Remember tomorrow is the NCM food drive at Church. Bring donations to church at 10am OR drop them off in our drive through from 2-4pm.
