After lunch Pastor Chris met us at the church and as able to share a little more about his story and the importance behind the work we have been doing this week. She shared that one of the main focuses of the church has been to reach the community around them especially families. Unfortunately many of those families are single parents which is why after school care is so important. He also shared that many people for one reason or another don’t want to come to church but when they see groups like ours helping clean up the parks they see that we are different. By working in the parks we are being a light to the community around us and encouraging people and sharing the love of Christ through our actions.
At the end of his time we had the opportunity to pray for him, his family, the church and surrounding community.
