Every spring, the Church takes a day to pull weeds, put down mulch, sweep, apply cold patch to our aging parking lot. Oh by the way, this summer the front parking lot will be brand new! But spring clean up affords the body an opportunity to develop deeper relationships with other like any other small group. Let’s face it, the 5 min meet & greet in service doesn’t cut it. This year so many of the new members showed up to participate! It also gives the body a sense of ownership. Naturally, there’s already a sense of a separation between the body and those of us who on staff. This lets everyone know any separation is only a perception, but it isn’t reality. Also, it certainly glorifies the Lord as it is His property. Finally, there is another benefit and that’s the witness it provides. While no Church should be opulent, or give the idea of super wealth, it should be neat and clean. It’s our hope that as people drive by or drive in, they see a piece of property that stands out in the town.
