To do this activity you need to cut out pieces of paper in the shape of a hand, or you can buy them fairly cheaply online as wooden cut outs. Once this is done, you should set up a stall in a public location. An attendant stands at the stall ready to talk to people and to write their name on the small wooden hands.

This is a simple symbolic idea to ask people “do you need a hand”. This display is setup in a prominent location.


This is a non-confrontational way of letting people discover the grace of God.
To introduce to people that God loves them, knows their name and that their name is engraved on the palms of his hands. To show that God is caring and cares specifically about them.


It helped and encouraged a wide audience of people. People were impacted at a deep level.
