STM Report: Creative Summer Outreach in Kentwood

Rev. Jerry Neumair


Members of nearby OP churches answered the call from Pastor Jerry Neumair (Meadow Springs Community Church, Kentwood, Michigan) for volunteers to help reach out to the community at the "Dragon Master"-themed July 4th Carnival and Parade in Kentwood, Michigan!

We received this follow-up report from Rev. Neumair:

Praise God for providing:

  • Volunteers from 3 Michigan OP churches:
    • Oakland Hills Community Church (Farmington Hills, MI)
    • Harvest OPC (Wyoming, MI)
    • Cedar OPC (Hudsonville, MI)

  • Amazing creativity in presenting the gospel via float, flyers, t-shirts and crafts
  • Fantastic weather (mid 70′s and no humidity)
  • The distribution of approximately 3,000 invites and gospel tracts (along with many refrigerator magnets and pocket New Testaments)
  • The funding of this outreach through the generosity of 2 churches and 2 families

Pray for fruit:

  • For follow-up on emails collected at the carnival for future events and sermon series
  • For families to attend the advertised series on “How to Train Your Children”
  • For God to move in the hearts of those who read or re-read our flyers, invites and Bibles
  • For a steady stream of visitors with some becoming fruitful members
