Neighborhood Ice Cream Socials
Why have a neighborhood ice cream social?
There are many people from
Crossroads that may live in your neighborhood but have not had a chance to meet
one another. By having a simple, fun social
and inviting folks from your neighborhood to hook up, you’ll probably find out
there are many folks just like you that live right around the corner! Also, at the social you can find out if there
are any folks interested in possibly forming a small group. Having a small group close by would allow you
to meet regularly for Bible study, fellowship, and support. At a minimum, you’ll make a few new friends
that live nearby. Best case is you’ll
meet the folks that will soon become your close friends in your new small
What would I need to do to host an ice cream social?
If you are willing to host an
ice cream social, all you would have to do is contact John
Frye at Frye@Crossroads.org
to get started! In a nutshell,
Crossroads will contact folks in your neighborhood for you, will pay for all
the food/supplies for the event, will act as “MC” at the event, and will
follow-up with folks afterwards. What
you do is actually host the event itself by opening your home, getting the
food/supplies, and welcoming folks when they arrive :o).
What would be the “next steps” after an ice cream
After the ice cream social, John Frye would follow-up with folks that attended
and provide them with a contact list of folks in their neighborhood (if they
indicated they wanted to be on the list).
He would also follow-up with individuals that indicated they were
interested in forming a new small group.
He would then work with these folks to try and start a new small group
in the neighborhood.

Anything else I need to know about these ice cream socials?
Ever wish you new a few more
of your neighbors? Looking for some
other people that have similar interests and things in common with you? Taking
a simple step to eat some ice cream with a few folks is a great way to make
this happen! Many people have already
taken this step in their neighborhoods and have begun developing deep
friendships. They are connecting,
growing, and serving in practical, daily ways as they experience the life
transforming power of Christ in their life!
