the Salt & Light Campaign
Our goal is to have every day from Mid-June to Mid-August adopted by a local church or follower of Jesus. Each day will be an invitation to our community to unite for:
We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but rulers, powers and authorities in the heavenly realms…Our prayers have divine power to demolish strongholds! Prayer of the righteous has the power to change our community!
We are told to “love our neighbor as ourselves.” We commit to doing an act of blessing with our neighbors in the Name and Power of Jesus Christ. Each day will be different, but our gifts will reflect Christ’s love and will be given freely. Any neighbor should be encouraged to take part.
Christ is our head, and we are His Body. As a Church, we can do more together than apart. We will gather daily from different denominations and backgrounds with 1 purpose: to lift up the Name of Jesus over our neighborhoods.
Sunday is often the most segregated day of the week. Many of us feel isolated. We want to get to know our neighbors both in and out of the church and encourage each other. We want to see change in our community, and relationship building is part of that change.
Our goals are simple: enable the followers of Jesus in our neighborhood to "Be Salt. Be Light." We will gather daily throughout the Summer months for times or worship, prayer and blessing throughout North Minneapolis. Each Church or neighbor that sponsors a day is allowed to do whatever they wish and we can help with ideas or materials. Our one request is that each day will begin with outdoor prayer and involve a simple blessing to our neighbors. The blessing can take on many forms: Cleanup, food, worship, witness, anything you can think of! The idea is that we get out of our walls and get to know our neighbors by doing an act of kindness for them and preferably with them. Please reserve 1/2 hour at the front end of your gathering for neighbors to gather and pray for our communities.
Step 1: Register
few requirements are placed on our partners, but we do ask that you agree to our 'Statement of Faith'. We believe that the only Name given that has the Power to save us and change our community is the Name of Jesus Christ. This does not mean we would turn anyone away who wants to help, it simply means our prayer and blessing times are led by a follower of Jesus.
Step 2: Pick a Day
Plan with your church or neighbors to adopt a day for the campaign. Adopting a day means that you will host other believers on the Northside, agree to meet and pray with them outdoors at least a half hour before your event, and do a simple act of blessing for your neighborhood. (i.e.: cleanup, food, popsicles, games, whatever; just do something free for your neighbors that reminds them of God's love)
Step 3: Post on our calendar
The calendar lets the community know what's going on. This will act as the official invitation to the community. Links will also be included on social media outlets. Again, any neighbor is welcome to join our activity, but the prayer and blessing time will be led by a representative of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Step 4: REport
Post pictures, videos, testimonies or any other form of encouragement to the website. This is for our mutual encouragement.

We love North Minneapolis. We love Jesus. Jesus loves North Minneapolis, and His plan to express His love to our neighborhood is you and me. How can followers of Christ best express this love? Together. Jesus said, "If 2 of you agree on earth...it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." It is time to unite under the Name of Jesus, and make our requests for peace in N. Mpls.
