30 Jun Serving JOYfully in Boston
We are at the halfway point of our summer serving in Medford alongside Redemption Hill Church. We just wrapped up our “Serve Medford” week, which is one of our two big focused outreach weeks for the summer. Each summer Redemption Hill spends a week intentionally focusing on meeting needs in the community for the purpose of building relationships and cultivating opportunities to share the gospel. This past week we focused our efforts in Barry Park which is a neighborhood park in the heart of Medford. Over the course of the week, we re-mulched and painted the playground and landscaped the surrounding area. Each night there were fun events geared toward meeting and engaging families who live in the neighborhood. We were able to give away water bottles, iced coffee, and other treats in order to strike up conversations. We also planned a basketball night for teens and gave out Gatorade and watermelon slices. We were thankful for the many opportunities we had to share the gospel, and have seen a few individuals attend church who we invited.
