Welcome to W’s Community Engagement Page!
Please scroll down to find links to our Community and Non-profit Partners, as well as projects we are currently engaging in the city.
I hope you are all well.
Because these past few months have been tremendously disorienting, it has been easy for many of us to feel like these times have taken away many things precious to us, including our ability to engage in mission.
As we regain our footing, especially in this time of social unrest, we feel that the best defense, is a good offense, so to speak.
In other words, we feel that the Lord continues to remind us from Matthew 5:15, that even in these uncertain times, we are called not to place our light under a cover, but rather, we need to put it on a stand so it can give light to the whole house. In other words, we seek to Bless the City.
And we feel that the best way to do that, is by starting in our neighborhoods.
So, each week for the rest of the summer, we will be asking our small groups to engage in one activity together, one activity that will bless and show the love of Christ in our neighborhoods.
And in these first couple of weeks, we would like to engage in sending messages to our neighborhoods in the form of chalk art.
We would love for everyone to write a Scripture verse that would inspire your neighborhood, using chalk on your driveway. I’ve included a photo for reference. The purpose is to show your neighborhood that this is a house of peace.
Please feel free to be as creative as possible. And once you are done, please take a picture and send it to: [email protected]
After receiving it, we will take and place it on our Instagram account.
And through these projects, my hope is that we, as a church, can come together this summer to be a blessing to our city. Please continue to come back to this page for more updates.
Thank you and may the Lord continue to bless you richly in Christ.
