Outdoor Movie Fun for the Neighborhood

Summer is coming and there are wonderful opportunities to get to know your neighbors. Here is one – Host a Movie Night Outdoors.

Redeemer, Richmond has a monthly Screen on the Green neighborhood movie night and a dinner to go with it. More than a100 neighbors plus congregational volunteers gather for these events. Neighbors are so excited with the opportunity to gather in a way that fosters conversations that they post the event on their facebook pages multiplying the opportunity to share the Gospel with others. While Redeemer brings the neighborhood to their location, Prince of Peace, Springfield does it a bit differently.

Prince of Peace, Springfield received Thrivent Action Grants to build portable movie screens and purchase a portable movie system to take it into the neighborhood. A member can sign up to use the portable “backyard movie theater” and invite their neighbors to come bring a chair and relax.

Great ways to meet your neighbors…and grow a relationship.
