Random Acts Of Kindness Campaign

We recently started a random acts of kindness series at our church and I thought I'd share a little bit of our journey along the way of this thing.

Our series at Northpoint Church is called "SHINE".  In Matthew 5:16, we are called to "let our lights shine before men that they may see our good deeds and praise the Father in Heaven."  I find this scripture inspiring because MY good deeds can point someone to HIM.  When someone is having a rough day or feel like the world has nothing but hate and depression to offer them, a random act of kindness can make them feel loved and hopefully reminded that the higher power hasn't forgotten about them!!

Along with this series we are starting a campaign called "Light Up New Braunfels".  The purpose of the campaign is to perform random acts of kindness around our city of New Braunfels, showing our "light" in the darkness.  We have cards that we pass out with our act of kindness.  On the back it has 10 check boxes and it states "Kindness. Pass it On."  The hope is that they, by receiving an act of kindness will be encouraged to pass on another act of kindness to someone else.  We could all use a little bit more love and kindness in our life.

What I love about this campaign is that our goal is not to grow our church, or even to necessarily win hearts to Christ (although that would be fantastic and we do pray for that), our goal is just to show the love of Christ to someone and we by doing that are promised by the Word that we will plant a seed that will point them to Christ.  

So, if you're thinking of doing something similar at your church or as a family I'd encourage you to check out the website I designed for this series at  It explains the concept of everything, showing ideas how you can be a "light" in your city and let's you share your experience.

So, please join me in this dare to show kindness for the next 6 weeks.  My goal is to do something whether it be small or big every day.  I hope to be posting some of our acts of kindness to if anything help spur on some more ideas of what you and your family can do to make a difference in this world.

God Bless,

Heather Joy
