We hosted our first neighborhood event last night. We hung popcorn bags with an announcement/invite to a front yard movi night. We weren’t sure who’d come but were excited about the turn out and excitement from those who did show up. We had around 30 people show up from a young baby to high school students to older parents with kids who are already in college. One gentleman was the first person to live in our neighborhood and had never been invited to anything like this and was excited and even brought some cookies for everyone.
We believe our world should be better because followers of Christ live here. We hope that as a result of our efforts that we will begin relationships with the people we come into contact with and be able to share Christ with them. Whether or not they choose to follow Jesus won’t change our desire to walk with them.
Our friends who are a part of our Paseo: Home (our house church) helped host the event. They were great and really helped us make connections with the people who showed up. We look forward to our relationship with them and our ministry together.
We look forward to hosting our next event… a backyard concert with consumption of grilled meat.
