OUTREACHES
Showing the love of God in practical ways with No Strings Attached!
Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10
Outreach: Getting outside of the church
Showing the love of Jesus, with no strings attached
M3 ChurchMountain Movers Ministry firmly believes that the church must go beyond the four-walls if it truly wants to change the lives of those both inside and outside the church. For that reason, we believe in taking every opportunity to go out and meet people, where they are, showing them the love of God, with no strings attached. No matter your age, gender, race or background, we can all do something to take Jesus into the world. Whether they are big or small, M3 tries to do at least one outreach project a month. Below is a description and image galleries from some of our many outreaches

Conspiracy of Kindness

We like to engage in what we call our Conspiracy of Kindness. These are typically smaller events, designed to have an impact by meeting a direct need, one kind act at a time. Something as simple as passing out flowers, putting quearters in machines at a laundromat or visiting those in nursing homes are all examples of some of our past Conspiracy of Kindness outreaches.

Feeding the Homeless

Whether someone has been living on the street for a few days or for years, there are few needs more basic than the need to eat. M3 Church has a passion for the homeless, knowing that it is only by the grace of God we have whatever we do. On an average Sunday we take food out for 150-200 people, offering them a wide variety of food, a chance to talk, prayer and ministry. Going beyond food, over the years we've sometimes offered personal hygiene bags, free haircuts, manicures, clothes, socks, jackets, blankets and passed out flowers on Mother's Day. Even though M3 provides the food, its often the members of the church that feel blessed at the end of the day.

Festivals

Once or twice a year we like to offer a free festival to the community, where families can come and enjoy time together in a safe environment, with no-strings attached. In the past we have held these festivals on our own, or while showing the community the true spirit of Jesus, as we've worked together with other churches, to offer this event. Whether it's during the spring or a Christ centered alternative to Halloween, you're sure to have a good time. Past events have offered a wide assortment of games, food and prizes, including support from some of the local businesses.

Home Makeovers

M3 Church is not a mega-church in size, but is a mega-church is its love for Christ. This drive has lead the church to offer a home makeover to two families. Pooling the resources of those attending M3, some amazing work has been done for these families, completely free of charge. Porches have been rebuilt, flooring replaced, plumbing issues resolved, new roofs put on, back porches rebuilt and screened in, homes cleaned, the homes painted inside and out, new tables built, appliances donated, windows replaced and much much more. On these outreaches everyone can find something to do, and under the guidance of trained individuals, many find themselves doing things they've never done before. At the end of the day families homes are transformed and Jesus is glorified.

Thanksgiving Dinner Giveaway

Every year M3 church blesses 100-130 families in need with a box filled with everything needed for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. All the boxes are filled based on the family's size and need, and then prayed for before being given out. M3 members come out to put the boxes together, fill and decorate them, giving of their time, effort and finances. Everyone from the oldest to youngest members get involved filling boxes and decorating them. It is truly a blessed time for all, with no strings attached

Christmas Toy Giveaway

Every year M3 Church reached out to the community by offering wrapped gifts to families, who might otherwise go without. Families register ahead of time and then show up to watch a short production which reminds us what the true meaning of Christmas is. Afterwards, each child receives 2-3 wrapped presents and everyone enjoys all cookies, hot chocolate, lemonade, coffee and water they can possibly consume. A time of prayer is ministry is available for all those who want it. This past year we had extra toys, so we allowed the kids to choose from those not wrapped and make their own gift-bags. The theme for the evening is simply, fun, laughter, giving and Jesus Christ.
