07 Aug We Find Our Yes In Christ #BLINK13
|Downtown Boston from the Prudential Tower|
This past week was Serve Medford and we ended the week with Community Fun Night. We had about eighty people come up to serve Medford alongside us. We served the community by doing work in the parks, giving out granola bars and gum at T stops, volunteering at Willis Avenue, serving at the Boys and Girls Club, and serving the local businesses. We closed the week with Community Fun Night. Nearly a thousand people showed up on Friday night and hung out with us. The night included; food, sno-cones, popcorn, carnival games, inflatables, face painting, arts and crafts, a bike stunt show (he also shared the gospel as he did his tricks), and nearly 25 raffle giveaways. The raffle giveaways included Red Sox tickets, two bikes, and gift cards to local businesses. We were able to connect with many different people during the event. I spoke with one young man for about forty five minutes and was able to answer some questions he had about Christianity and was able to share the gospel with him. Our outreach team did a great job of engaging people and telling them more about Redemption Hill. They also gave out multiple Bibles throughout the night. Community Fun Night was a great opportunity to display our love for Christ and for Medford.
