On July 23, Living Hope Church partnered with Rita's Ice Cream in downtown Powell to let the community know we loved them and there was a new church coming to town! For 90 minutes, the team purchased ice cream for anyone and everyone that walked through the door - no questions asked. Over that period, they were able to serve 150 people and make some great connections with people interested in connecting with a local church. And do you know how most of them showed up? They put a person in a Minion costume on the corner of the street dancing... and people stopped to see what was going on.
This is just one of the many ways in which the Evangelism Resource Group partners with churches to advance the gospel in Ohio! Thanks to Pastor Aaron Taylor and Living Hope Church Powell for this great idea!
