  2. Invite an ethnic church or organization to present a program on your site
  3. Share a meal with an ethnic church or organization
  4. Do a physical work project in the community, or to benefit an elderly or disabled person or a family of recent immigrants
  5. Share a meeting or special event of your youth group, women's group, men's group, etc.
  6. Plan a picnic or outing together
  7. Share a film series
  8. Plan a special class in your Sunday School; invite ethnic leaders to speak
