Summer Olympics: 3 Outreach Ideas

Email this Print version

Use the largest sporting event on the planet as an opportunity to reach you community and connect new people to your church.

Use the largest sporting event on the planet as an excuse to get together, laugh and learn more about the challenges God places upon us.

1. Throw a Friday night opening ceremony party for families. Show the ceremony (Friday, August 5 on NBC—check local listings for time) on a big screen (outside weather permitting). Ask people to invite their neighbors. Provide popcorn and soft drinks and water.

2. Preach or start a sermon series on “running with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1). The race could be applied to the upcoming school year for kids and students.

3. Host a goofy Olympics night for youth. Set up your own Olympic games with medals for the winners. Serve pizza and have the real Olympics on TV in the background. Encourage teens to invite their friends.
