One Outreach + Many Neighborhoods =
Illuminating Our Community
In the same way, let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your Father in heaven.
What is Light the Night? Light the Night (LTN) is a whole church outreach – where we will reach our entire community through individual neighborhoods.
We are looking for 12 – 15 FCF Families to host “Light the Night” during their neighborhoods’ scheduled trick-or-treating (most likely Oct. 31st). These families will be the LTN Neighborhood Leads and their homes will be illuminated as much as possible with flood lights, porch lights, and house lights, with the focal point of a lit cross and scripture signs. Approximately 6 -8 volunteers will sign up to help hand out hotdogs, chips, lemonade, candy, and a gospel tract — Sharing Jesus’ love with the neighborhood by being a beacon of Light shining brightly for Him.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
How Do I Sign Up? To be a Neighborhood Lead and bring LTN to your neighborhood, sign up by September 24 at www.explorefcf.com, or sign up in the foyer at FCF.
After all neighborhoods are determined, volunteer sign up will be open October 1st through October 15th at www.explorefcf.com or in the foyer at FCF.
I am not able to be a Neighborhood Lead or Volunteer? How can I help? There are a few ways you can help. You can:
- “Sponsor” a home by donating money to help cover supplies
