Reaching out

So right now I am trying to use the internet to reach out. Is that weird? I guess not, but I am not sure how affective it will be. But if it reaches one person, it is worth it. One problem we have had in the church plant we are at with making contacts. It is hard to make contacts here and then get them to come to anything. They are very work oriented and then family oriented. When they are not working, they are with family or watching soccer. The other day, the Pastor here and I had a discussion about ways to reach out because we have tried some things, and it seems like we hit road blocks. This year we thought we were turning a corner, but lately things just have not been panning out. We get people to come to some events, but that is the maximum involvement.
What are some interesting ways to reach out to those around you where you are at?

Maybe what they have - work, family, and fun - is too good to give up. Those are certainly attractive to me! What can you learn from them? You may find that they are more open to what you have to offer, when they see you are open to what they have to offer - when they see your curiosity about them, and desire to learn about and from them.

Just a thought. I know you're already doing that.
