WHAT ARE NEIGHBORHOOD MEETUPS?

We believe that God has placed each of us at a residence for a reason. Neighborhood Meetups are simply opportunities to get outside and host a casual get-together with your neighbors! 

 

We hope these meetups are a fun and organic way to simply get to know and be salt & light to our neighborhoods. Right now, there is a great need and desire for people to be connected and cared for, so let’s be good neighbors in our city and fight the “backyard tendency” by getting out front!

- HOW TO PARTICIPATE -

As you’ll see below, we have a suggested calendar date and some initial ideas for an activity that might be the basis of your meetup.

 

Each Neighborhood Meetup date is a standalone opportunity, so participate in as many or few as you’d like! These are intentionally uncomplicated, so make it your own!

- LET US KNOW -

Whether you are just beginning to pray about what other household(s) to invite or are already excitedly making plans for the next meetup date, we’d love to know! How come?

 

 

– We want to be praying for your meetup and neighborhood!

– We’d love to know what area of town you’re reaching!

– We’re here to partner and support any way we can as you

Independence Day

July 4 || Neighborhood Meet Up

The Fourth of July is a great opportunity to kick off our Neighborhood Meetups! Choose a time that works for you and invite some of your neighbors to bring a lawn chair and drop by with their family!

 

ACTIVITY IDEAS

-FIREWORKS: This is a great chance to invite your neighbors over for some fireworks! Sparklers for the kids, some fountain fireworks on a ladder, this is a recipe for some great “get to know you” time! Good chance some other neighbors might wander out to join you too!

-PORCH/DRIVEWAY HANGOUT:  If earlier in the day, invite your neighbors over for a casual front yard tailgate! Enjoy some outdoor or lawn games, serve up some patriotic snacks, have some good music playing, some hotdogs or s’mores on a portable grill, or even let the kids run through the sprinklers!

national night out

August 3 || Neighborhood Meet Up

National Night Out is the first Tuesday in August and is recognized across the country as an evening to be outside among neighbors to build strong, anti-drug & anti-crime communities!

 

ACTIVITY IDEAS
-MOVIE NIGHT: Set a show time and invite your neighbors to bring a lawn chair and their favorite movie snack! Use a projector on an outdoor screen or the garage door (need help figuring this out, let us know!)

-GAME NIGHT: Prepare a game or several, ranging from charades to a cornhole tournament, and make an evening of it! Let your neighbors know what the game is and when to drop by!

Labor Day

September 6 || Neighborhood Meet Up

Labor Day is the first Monday in September and often signals the summer season and break coming to an end. Labor Day is a federal holiday across the United States, so it’s a great day to host a meetup since there’s a good chance your neighbors are free and looking for what to do!

 

ACTIVITY IDEAS
-CHALK WALK: If your neighbors have kids, invite them over to make a “Chalk Walk” outside on the sidewalk in the neighborhood! Including hopscotch, a bible verse or other encouragement, and instructions to make the walk fun (jumping, avoiding certain elements, running, puzzles, etc.).

-BBQ/PICNIC: Find a spot with shade and invite your neighbors to bring lawn chairs or a blanket for a little grilling or picnic! Nothing fancy, even some skewers and some socially distanced hotdog grilling is a win! If not the grilling type, invite your neighbors to bring a picnic and enjoy eating all together as a neighborhood!

halloween

October 31 || Neighborhood Meet Up

Halloween is a popular American holiday where neighbors, especially families, are naturally out of their homes and out in the neighborhood!

 

ACTIVITY IDEAS
-PUMPKIN CARVING: During the day, invite your neighbors to bring their own pumpkin and enjoy a time of decorating and/or carving! Set out some old newspapers or some covering on the driveway and start getting creative with those pumpkins!

-DRIVEWAY TRUNK OR TREAT: Invite your neighbors to come over and hang out “tailgate style” during the early trick-or-treat rush (before too dark and when most of the younger families are out)! Pool the neighborhood candy and pass it out together and meet even more neighbors!
