“Kindness builds the bridge for the person to receive a touch of love from God.”
The Not So Random Acts of Kindness project came about from a desire to make intentional and prayerful connections with people already in our lives, in an effort to plant the seed of the gospel and connect people to Jesus.
These aren’t just RANDOM acts of kindness, they are small actions done through big faith with intentions of bringing the love of God into people’s lives. Please fill out the form below to share your experiences with us so they can be celebrated and God can be glorified. We ask that you continue to pray, as together we aspire to spread not only tangible love for others, but the message of the gospel!

Being a good neighbor is more important than ever given the state of the world, but with all of the social-distancing guidelines, it can feel complicated. The Art of Neighboring gives some practical ways that you can connect with your neighbors.
“What if Jesus meant that we should love our actual neighbors?”
Community beyond your neighbors.
Here are some additional categories of people you can be intentional about connecting with!
FAMILY AND FRIENDS
CONNECT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
A great first place to start making intentional, gospel focused connections is with family and friends. Spend some time praying about those closest in your lives and how you can intentionally share the gospel. We encourage you to think about friends and family members that do not yet know Jesus as their Savior.
CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS
Neighborhoods sure have changed over the years. In the past, without question, people brought food to new neighbors. They would often help each other with projects and even share tools. Think about how you can and connect with a neighbor in an effort to share the gospel. You can strike up conversation outside, send them something in the mail!
CO-WORKERS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS
CO-WORKERS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS
You can also reach out to a community leader or co-worker. This can be done over lunch with a work friend or in the break room! You can also use this week to connect with community leaders. This can include first responders, election candidates, and even small business owners you might encounter.
CONNECT WITH ANYONE
There are many other category of people to connect with. This can be more personal to your own life. If you have children in school, it can be a teacher or coach. If you have elderly friends or family in a nursing home, it can be their caregivers. Think of someone you feel called to connect with and take that intentional step of sharing Jesus!
Bridging our actions to a Gospel Presentation
We know that this is not always an easy thing for people to do. Here are some practical ways of making that bridge.
- “We have been shown the love of Christ and we just want to pass that on, even in a small way.”
- “We hope you enjoy ___________. We are thankful for the love of God we have experienced and we just want to pass that on.”
- “Our church is focusing in on us showing the love of Christ to those around us. With that I thought of you and wanted to give this to you!”
We will also provide a card in the weeks to come that you can give out as part of the challenge.
