LITTLE THINGS can make a BIG IMPACT
The smallest sparks of light shine brightest in the darkest night. Let’s put faith into action during these trying times and do all of the #Littlethings we can to demonstrate God’s love to our city. As a congregation, we want to perform one “little” act of love for every diagnosed case of COVID-19 in North East Florida. That would result in nearly 3,000 #littlethings between now and July 12!
This is what you do:
We have listed ideas for LITTLE THINGS that you can do to make a BIG IMPACT on our city. Each time you do one of these things (or another act of kindness) come back and record it by filling out the form below!
Little Things Resources:
L – Love someone who has lost income by helping them with groceries, gas or some essential living expense.
I – Invest in One More Child by making a contribution to the “2020 Invested Campaign” and help us raise $7,000 for the Florida Baptist Children’s Home. You can also sponsor a child by visiting ssbc.org for more information.
T – Thank a medical worker, first responder, or other essential worker by making and distributing “Hero” appreciation bags.
T – Tell someone staying “safe at home” that you care and are available to help by making a call or sending a card or letter. Email email@example.com for a list of Southsiders who are “safer at home.”
L – Leave a note for your mailman, delivery person, trash collector, etc., thanking them for staying on the job during this crisis.
E – Eat at (or do take-out from) a local restaurant. Support your community merchants!

H – Help us serve our congregation during on campus worship gatherings by serving as a greeter or volunteering with our preschoolers or children during our on-campus worship gatherings. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.

N – Need an idea? Check out https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/coronavirus/random-acts-kindness for more #Littlethings you can do.
G – Give a neighbor a loaf of Friendship Bread and/or a friendship bread starter.
S – Something not on this list! Listen to the Holy Spirit and obey every “little” thing He leads you to do!
Help us reach our goal by telling us what you did (or what you’ve already done). If every does just a little bit, we will reach our BIG goal! The only way to know though is to track it. Fill out the short form above to update the tracking chart! If you want to remain anonymous, just submit a response without your name. Every #Littlething will add up to make a BIG difference!
