Reaching your City
WHAT IS REACH DAY
REACH Day is an initiative to see youth ministries and individual teenagers make a positive impact on their community.
One day a year is designated at REACH Day when students and leaders from churches all over Ohio will serve their community through outreach, service projects, and prayer. The hope is that this day of intentional selfless service will inspire each individual to make it a consistent habit.
WHEN IS REACH DAY
Saturday, August 13th
WHERE IS REACH DAY HAPPENING
Right in your own city! We encourage you to join with your church, friends, family, and youth ministry to reach out in your community on Reach Day. Your group can plan the type of ministry work you will do on that day together, or you can join with an outreach already happening near you.
ONE DAY, TWO WAYS TO BE INVOLVED
Option 1: PLAN AN OUTREACH IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Find the needs in your community and mobilize your group to help meet that need.
Some outreach ideas:
- Prayer walk
- Serve in a food pantry or free meal program
- Backpack giveaway
- Clean up a rundown area
- Block party style outreach
- Partner with another outreach oriented ministry in your area
- Work projects in a local school
- Help a church with work projects
Option 2: JOIN AN AREA OUTREACH
There will be several outreach projects on Reach Day that you and your group can join with if you will not be planning your own.
