Here are some ideas that have worked for other groups:
Festival of Trees
For several years our AW group has participated in Festival of Trees at an area Methodist church. This is held in
early December for three days. We always present a gospel message through our interpretation of the holiday theme.
It's a wonderful way to share Christ.
- Grandview Alliance Church, Erie, PA
Our AW group made cookies for the local firemen and gift gaskets for adults living in a group home. A School Supply
outreach to give free supplies to kids and families in the community is what we're planning for this summer.

Reaching into a Local School (Faith Alliance Church in St. Paul, MN)
As an outreach our ladies and church has adopted an elementary school. Each week, people from our church spend an hour
or so reading with the children. Our ladies (now called Heart Beat for Missions), have taken an appreciation cake to
the teachers and staff. We also invite the lady teachers and staff to our May tea or brunch and our Christmas Party.
We as a church help to supply backpacks, paper, pens, etc that we give to them in Septembeer. One Christmas, we gave
each teacher a "Holiday Heart." They were to write on it their name and something they wanted for Christmas. We put
these on a small Christmas tree which our ladies took and purchased the things they wanted. They were given these
gifts at the Christmas Party or taken to the school.

In Our Neighborhoods (Article from 2002-2003 Yearbook, Illuminating the Way)
Each of us has an incredible opportunity for Illuminating the Way - reflecting the love of Jesus with those who are
geographically the closest to us - our Neighbors. It is not an accident that we live in our present location. God has
carefully orchestrated for each of us to be where we are and He intends for us to be a bright spiritual light in the
darkness that surrounds us. He has placed us in our neighborhoods with great purpose.

Outreach: An Event and a Lifestyle (Article from 2002-2003 Yearbook, Illuminating the Way)
"Lighting the Way" is the theme chosen for the outreach event. The event can be sponsored by the Alliance Women for the entire churchs' participation or simply be held as an Alliance Women's outreach. The Alliance Women and/or church people are encouraged to invite those who have been influential in their lives - those who have helped to light their way, and others who do not know the Lord. Time should be given during the program to appreciate those who have been a light. The meal can be prepared by the ladies or catered. The tables can be decorated with an open Bible in the center and candles on either side of it.

Life Style Evangelism
"LIFE STYLE EVANGELISM, RELATIONAL EVANGELISM,
FRIENDSHIP EVANGELISM," TITLE IT WHAT YOU WILL -
IT IS SIMPLY . . . "For me to live is Christ" Philippians 1:21
I donšt remember when I first memorized this verse. But while seeking to bring my neighbors to
Jesus it became a life style for me. There are opportunities all around, each day, in all types of
circumstances to build relationships and get involved with people in order to bring them to Jesus.
Jesus wants to use our hands, our feet, our minds, our tongues, our attitudes, our bodies literally to present Himself to people.
