The church teaches that the Church must engage the world in order to be able to make a difference in it. As such it offers outreach activities that connect to the community at several different levels. Some of these activities are designed to shock large amounts of people with kindness believing that people are not used to churches thinking about their needs and offering them assistance. These activities include returning shopping carts and leaving extra tips for service with an encouraging note from the church. Other activities are designed to give an opportunity to begin to get to know people and have a chance to begin discussing church and other spiritual issues. These activities include the "gas buy down events" where the church lowers the price of their gas by 20 cents a gallon and pumps it for them. This gives members of the church an opportunity to have a 5 minute conversation about why they would be out ministering to the public. Other projects are designed to build long-term relationships, which can result in salvation decisions.
