Single Mom's Oil Change

About 2 times a year, we dedicate our 1st Saturday service projects to a single mom's oil change. It has been a very good outreach effort, we have been able to service some 40 cars of needy families. It is a very good project if you are looking for an opportunity for your church to make meaningful touches in our community. To tell you the truth, the biggest benefit of the event is that there is no better practical way for a church to give men an opportunity to serve. Far to often, churches forget to involve men in their churches. At Ridgeview, we have learned from our experiences over the last year, that the outreach events we direct toward men (Super Sunday, 3 on 3 Basketball Tourney, Oil Change) are not only better attended, but more easily staffed as well. Look for future posts on this page, and updates on the website for the follow up after this weekend.

  1. Hi
    My church is thinking about doing the oil change thing for our servant evangelism day. I was wondering if you had any ideas on organization.
    Of course every oil filter is different, so did the people preregister..or how did you do it?
    Love the idea, thanks for your help!
