Kindness Challenge

Kindness Challenge

One of the best ways to connect as a family or as a small group is by serving together. But not everyone has a spare day to commit to serving right now. That’s where the Kindness Challenge comes in—to give our small groups and your family the opportunity to spread positivity and joy around our community should you choose to join us.

We will be doing the Kindness Challenge together as a large group and/or within our small groups. We encourage you to ask your child what the challenge is, and try to do it together as a family as well - or maybe try a different act of kindness.  If kids say they already did an act of kindness, because let's face it, some will, remind them that you can never be too kind.

Here's How It Works:

Accept the Challenge!

Challenge #1 - February 2, 2020

Smile at five people until they smile back.

Challenge #2 - February 5, 2020

Tell 5 people that they did a good job.

Challenge #3 - February 9, 2020

Take a heart and give a heart. Hearts will be available from First Lights. We encourage you to take a heart and leave it somewhere for someone to find. This can be in the church, at school or at home.

Challenge #4 - February 12, 2020

Make and display a 'Kindness Matters' sign and put it up under TV at bottom of steps, or take it home, or put it in your car window.

Challenge #5 - February 16, 2020

Say 'Good Morning' to five people you don't know very well.

Challenge #6 - February 19, 2020

Paint rocks with kind messages and leave them around the church, your home or your neighborhood.

We will also be leaving them around our neighborhood on April 5 during our Palms Parade to the Park.

Give high fives to five people (not your First Lights Friends).

Challenge #8 - February 26, 2020
