Together we can empower others to grow in their faith by personally impacting their communities and continue to reach others for Jesus, and Personal IMPACT Opportunity is one big step in that direction!
Monthly Challenge: February
Our Struggles – how can I use my story to impact someone who is struggling? The opportunity is to come alongside someone who is dealing with difficult life circumstances and share your testimony. We all know someone who is in pain, someone who is struggling right now and needs God’s love. Take the opportunity to share how God changed your life and how He wants to work powerfully in their life, too. Offer to pray for/with them.
Verse: “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Monthly Challenge: January
Misfits for Jesus – how can I help people in need in my community? The opportunity is to make a blessing bag filled with basic necessities that can be given to someone who is homeless. Fox River is coming alongside Misfits for Jesus again this year to prepare as many bags as possible for people in need in our area. Bags will be assembled during our Community Impact weekend in January at all campuses. You can even assemble one at home and keep it in your car. The church isn’t a building, it’s people. Let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus for those who need it the most.
Verse: “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’.” Matthew 25:40

Monthly Challenge: December
Immanuel – how can I share the miracle of Jesus’s birth with others? When Jesus was born, it changed everything. God became flesh here on earth – Immanuel – meaning God with us. Jesus’s arrival signaled hope for each one of us, and eternal life to all who believe. This Christmas, the opportunity is to celebrate Jesus’s birth by giving the gift of a Bible to one person. Maybe a niece or nephew doesn’t have their own Bible. It could be that a coworker has never read the nativity through Scripture. As Christians we know that God is for us, He is with us, and He is in us. Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate that miracle by giving the gift of His Word.
Verse: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23 NKJV
