Missional Outreach at Big Lots: "Absolutely Free, No Strings Attached Gift-Wrapping"

Over 20 FBC members wrapped presents and chatted up customers at the Big Lots store within sight of the church. Here are some pictures (courtesy Philip Pan):

We had the advantage of Mandarin-speaking Philip Pan (Mr. Personality!) as well as several Spanish-speakers.

We offered free gift-wrapping from 3-6 on Sunday afternoon. We had about thirty families take us up on it and had about 5-6 substantive conversations with people as to why we were there: to freely serve as God freely loves.

On Sunday morning, we had a great attendance and gave away five guest boxes to newcomers. Keep praying that Christmas time will be harvest time!

Hi, great blog! I see you are talking about Big Lots here. On this great site I found out that the company specializes in overstock and closeout merchandise retail. Big Lots operates hundreds of department stores in almost every U.S. state. Big Lots Furniture stores are free standing stores that sell a complete line of furniture for living room, dining room, bedroom, home office and kitchen; mattresses, toys, watches and accessories.

I LOVE YOU said...
