Spilling Out into the Neighborhood

A hearty group from FPC participated in our 3rd annual Roosevelt Work Day which for 2014 was really a work afternoon.  About 45 people joined in again beautifying the grounds and “fluffing” the playground bark.  This year we also participated inside the building by taking on some projects requested by teachers as they prepared for the school year and created new student kits with school supplies donated by US Bank.  It was a beautiful day in more ways than just the weather!

Encouraged by our participation in 2013, a group of FPC’ers again claimed a section of sidewalk, brought their grills and helped create a welcoming neighborhood atmosphere at the 2014 Lower South Hill Block Party.  Led by grillmaster Travis Trent and his apprentice Mason Trent, we grilled up about 400 hot dogs and served them with all the fixin’s.  This year we were joined by ten students from our Praxis senior high group who jumped right in by helping out with the children’s play area and even served some David’s Pizza.  These students painted faces, helped with sidewalk chalk art and bubble blowing and loved on the neighborhood kids.  Some Communitas volunteers participated by inviting a number of neighborhood refugee families (and have now started an after-school English program at Roosevelt).

At the party this year it was noticeable that FPC roots are beginning to form with these neighbors of ours.  There were many greetings as we recognized our student friends from the school.  The party organizers were extremely gracious and appreciative of our involvement.  And, we were able to coordinate the involvement of Roosevelt and the WSU Foodsense program with the party.  This was a day of so many small kindnesses, smiles and good community - the kingdom of God is near…
