Servant Evangelism Opportunities
Servant Evangelism is our way of demonstrating the kindness of God by offering to do some act of humble service with no strings attached. SE connects people to God in a natural, easy, low-risk, high-grace way. Who doesn't like to be given a cold soda on a hot day? Especially by someone who is smiling, happy, and having fun. SE wins the heart, establishes relationships, and provides opportunities to share Jesus in a profound way that bypasses mental defenses.
It usually goes something like this:
"Hi, would you like a regular or diet?" (Soft Dink Giveaway)
"Oh, regular, thank you! This is so nice. I can't believe this is for free. Why are you doing this?"
Kindness builds the bridge for the person to receive a touch of love from God, and we always add an invitation to church or other method on connection that includes our church serivce times. Through these small touches, relationships with God are born as simple acts of kindness are done in the Name of Jesus.
That's it! Do that, and you've reached someone with the love of Christ! It's simple, practical, effective, inexpensive, and fun! Small things done with great love will change the world.
Project: Christmas Caroling Poinsettia Give-A-Way
The SE team will meet at the church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, on Saturday, December 16 2017, at 5:45 p.m. and sing from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
But … this is no ordinary servant evangelism project because this is a South Bay SE Project. You will be helping to spread Christmas cheer through some good-old-fashion Christmas caroling. Of course, we are going to combine our caroling with a tangible expression of God’s love by also giving away a poinsettia plant to each family with no strings attached. We will simply be telling the families that, “It’s our way of saying that God loves you. Merry Christmas!”
Saturday, December 16, 5:45 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Meet at South Bay Bible Church
578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, NY; (631) 909-8241
Please arrive 10 minutes early.
Pease wear weather appropriate clothing.
We go rain or shine; cold or warm.

Share Your Evangelism Story
From Susan L. | November 11, 2017 | Leaf Raking
Our group went to one house and a sweet older man answered the door. We told him we were from SBBC and wanted to share the love of Jesus and rake his lawn with no obligations. He looked shocked and said no obligation. I think it took some time for him to register that we really meant it. Then he looked out his door and saw our amazing crew ready to get to work he agreed. Along with doing servant evangelism is the fellowship going on outside the church. It is so encouraging and joyful to reach out to the community with my church family.
From Mike G. | January 17, 2017 | Coffee & Cider Give-A-Way
When Pastor asked us to write about any experiences we might have had at the coffee give away/window washing outreach, I first thought that I didn't have any. I didn't come into contact with people as I was picking up trash around the station and window washed one business. But thinking about it a bit, I realized that I felt happiness and joy from the others of our group who told of their meetings with customers. I was amazed by the fact that we gave away 80 cups of coffee and had numerous positive feedback from the people that were served. Maybe it isn't so amazing when you realize that God is at work here. I found joy that in a short time span we were able to touch and reach and show God's love, so I definitely consider this outreach a success. Especially for the person who was struggling with God that this was a blessing for them, that we are there when they needed God's love. It reminds me a little of the shepherd who left his flock to find the lost stray. I believe that if we touch and reach only one soul, then our outreach is successful and is worth the effort. For it is to God's glory that we do so. I say thank you to the people who were there spreading God's love and when a group of us are gathered together He will work wonders.
From Steve T. | November 14, 2016 | Leaf RakingI thought the leaf raking project was an excellent way of helping our neighborhood as well as getting to know our church members, although I must admit I had it easy I was using the blower that I brought possibly by Design. LOL
From Susan L. | October 10, 2016 | Business Blast
It was such a blessing to have been part of this ministry. All the businesses we brought baskets to were so surprised and appreciative. Maria and I went to Dun Rite in Center Moriches and gave the gift basket to the owner. He was kind enough to bring us back to the employee room to give it to the workers there. Their faces looked very confused when they saw us. I guess maybe they thought we were selling something or there was a problem for them to fix. After we explained that this was a gift to show our appreciation for what they do in the area, their whole body language changed and there was truly joy on their faces. The owner told us that he usually brings issues for them to solve and fix. So God touched their hearts with love and kindness!! I can't wait for next month's project!! Susan
