Contest Time!

Posted on July 25, 2017

This fall we will be focusing on doing life better through community groups and neighboring. Imagine what could happen when we reexamine things we’re already doing.


Some of you have been in the same community group or Sunday school class for decades. Some of you could be looking for a community group, but apprehensive because…well, I could list a million reasons why community groups could be scary for a newcomer.


And what does it mean to be a neighbor? Take cookies to someone who just moved in… Check their mail while they are out of town… Kids come crowd your house and eat your food after school… But, what if you don’t know your neighbors?


We want to hear from you, so how about a contest?!


Tell us your story about your community group or neighboring.


We want to hear about the streets that are more than just houses; they are people who matter to you. We want to hear about your community group that lifted you up out of a low. We want to hear about the people who challenge you, who make you a better person, who make life extra special.


Stuff you need to know: Contest entries must be 500 words or less, and submitted by Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 5 PM to: Crystal Holic. You may also post a comment on our Facebook wall. From there, COTD staff will pick some of the stories to share this fall. Finalists will receive a Starbucks gift card.


So, what are you waiting for?! Tell us your story now!



Looking forward to hearing from you,

Crystal Holic, Minister of Community Outreach
