Try This: Throw an Ice-Skating Party

Use this nonthreatening winter pastime to connect with your community.

Rent the local ice rink for a day and offer your community free ice-skating, Christian music, cookies and refreshments. It’s a friendly and nonaggressive way to witness to your city. Living Water Christian Fellowship in Blyth, Ontario, offers a “Free Skate” event like this during the school district’s professional development day in December. “Free Skate is a friendly witness to our community—and a great touch point for us,” Pastor Ernest Dow says.
