Any church needs to start by teaching God's Word and equipping its members to live the Christian life as well as be able to share their faith. Then they need to pray about how God would have them reach out to their communities. For example, our church is working on putting together a community pantry, but another church may get a different vision for its neighborhood. We go out once a month and do something in the neighborhoods around our church, passing out flyers, or whatever the Lord shows us to do. One time we made sack lunches for the homeless and passed them out wherever we found them. The list is endless as to what you can do. I like to go out and just talk to people and listen to what their needs are. Not everyone wants to talk, but some will. Ask if they have prayer requests etc.
