- Go door-to-door (maybe as a family) in your neighborhood and ask if anyone has physical needs you can help with or prayer requests.
- Put cards of encouragement on neighbors’ doorstops. Invite them to call/text (if you feel comfortable giving out your cell phone number) or email prayer requests or physical needs.
- Call people who need help.
- Activate “virtual small groups” to create community using Zoom, Google Hangouts, or other video conference service.
