We had our first First Serve ministry this past Saturday. We estimate that about seventy people showed up to serve the church or community in some way.
We fed homeless people by preparing, delivering and handing out bag lunches to people at the Corner Table in Newton. We met our Adopt-a-Street obligation and picked up trash on the side of the road. We made repairs and upgrades to our playground (specifically for the Easter Egg Hunt coming up). And we prepared and delivered flowers to a nursing home and brighted up the day for some of the residents there.
It was a good Saturday morning topped off by a visit for the rest of the day with friends we haven't seen in a while.
