After-church salad bar, sub bar, baked potato bar, taco bar, ice cream bar, etc. Charge per person or per family.
Youth put on a play and serve dinner, sell tickets
Students place pink plastic flamingos in people’s yards, and leave an advertisement for flamingo removal. Flamingos are removed for a donation. Another way you can do it is that someone makes a donation in order to have the flamingos placed in someone else’s yard. It’s a great way for the congregation to prank their friends.
