Snow Evangelism at "The Dump"

Westside's Sledding Ministry

Spreading the cocoa Gospel

Jenison, Michigan has a Mars Hill! The local sledding grounds- Charlie's Dump/The Soccer Bowl- is where you can find the locals gathered on the weekend. Our church, Westside Baptist ( hands out chips and hot cocoa to all and, if God opens doors, we share the Gospel and invite people to visit our church. It is a good, non-intimidating way to meet our "neighbors'.
It works well as a family ministry. My kids are occupied with sledding and meeting other kids and I can help out at the table. Now I just need to get out of my comfort zone and actually start conversations with people. My small talk ability stinks. But the more I practice at it and work at it, the better I'll be.
