Good Works

Good Works

“It takes more than a building to make a church. And it takes more than one hour on Sunday to understand why.” – from “A Thousand Hands,” a TV spot of
the “Good Works” expression.

The Good Works expression of the campaign is designed to help make the connection between The United Methodist Church and its Wesleyan outreach roots. It also can be effective with those who have left the church and would welcome an invitation to return.

It calls the audience to think in new ways about how their lives mean something for others. This expression should be used by churches actively helping those in need in the community – not just the homeless, but all hurting people.

The ads are based on a capacity for good works inside every human being that, if properly tapped, may become a true reward in a person’s life. The expression asks a little more than the others, in terms of giving back, and should be considered in active communities, perhaps of young professionals or those with high incidence of families. This expression meets a key motivator for attendance identified in research: a church that is active in helping others in the community.
