We have another story to tell you about a small group service project. This one is about community. About starting new relationships. About stepping outside our front door and breaking down imaginary walls between neighbors.
Half of the houses on our small street came out to enjoy a cool Sunday afternoon together, and everyone said that they enjoyed meeting new neighbors and being together, and that we hoped we can do it again next year.
The few people that we told about the “grant” from our church were surprised that a church would do this.
Side-entertainment was supplied by the Bronco’s game on the radio, and police responding to a drunk guy who drove down the street three times.
We also collected voluntary contract information from whomever wanted to participate in a “Street Directory”, which will help us to get to know our neighbors, as well as providing some safety as we look out for each other.
The following is excerpted from a note written by one of Brian and Pam’s neighbors following the BBQ…
“The party, I thought was a huge success! It was so nice to meet so many of the neighbors and get to know them better! I feel I now have many dear friends where before I found only strangers.”
Did your small group do a service project? We’d love to tell you story.
Please send it to Kyle, along with any photos you took and we’ll share it here on our blog.
