Flowers and Trash

One of the things our new church- New Community Covenant Church in Bronzeville– has said repeatedly is that we will exist for the good of our neighbors and neighborhoods.  In other words, our times of gathering together for worship are meant to align our minds and heart towards God so that we may be sent to participate in God’s mission in our city.

So it was no small thing for us to spend last Saturday, less than two months since our weekly services began, picking up litter and planting flowers at Drake Elementary where we hold our Sunday services.

While we got a lot of flowers planted and litter picked up, I’d be lying if I said we didn’t have a lot of fun as well.  Because we’re a new church it’s helpful to have chances like this to spend time getting to know each other, even while we take very small step in mission together.
