Small things done with Christ's love can change the world. An act of kindness is a simple, effective, and fun way to show the love of Jesus to the people around you.

The Acts of Kindness cards are about engaging with someone the "why" of our action. We don’t only want to spread kindness, but we want to spread kindness with a purpose. Using your Acts of Kindness cards helps the recipient connect your act of kindness to God’s love for them.

Below are some ideas to get you started. With each act, simply give an Acts of Kindness card to let someone know they are noticed and loved by God.

1. Pray about and then follow the lead of the Holy Spirit to love someone by doing something that meets a need they have. (List below of ideas)

2. ACT - Go love the person through your action. (Individual, families, small groups encouraged to do together as well)

3. Leave the Acts of Kindness card with the person. Note: Consider engaging them in conversation about "why". Example: "I am a Jesus follower and he has provided so much for me I am excited to serve you today!"

4. Pray for the people you served.

5. Communicate your story to encourage others through one of three options:

    1. Share your story on this page.

    2. Email your story to Jeremy Thomas. info@fbcbranson.com

    3. Post your story on the FBC Branson facebook page.
