Going outside the walls

I’ve been pondering the idea of church outside the walls. Jesus didn’t say “Build a great building and plan great programming and they will come to you.” He said, “Go.” So how do we do that? How do we meet women where they are? And what do we do when we get there?

I came across a great list of ideas that help put us out there where the people are. (List starts halfway down the page.) It gives us a start, gets us from behind the walls and into the community. But where do we go from there? Is it enough just to be there? How do we turn a gift-wrapping station into a difference for Christ?
