A new effort is underway among Pocket area churches to work together to serve our community. Many of us have recognized that even though we worship and live in such close proximity (Florin Road is church row!), we rarely connect with one another as churches. That is changing. Our goal has become to find regular ways our congregations can come together to meet the needs of others who live in the Pocket/Greenhaven neighborhood. Back in May we held our first cooperative food drive and collected thousands of pounds of food for the SSIP food closet. This summer, a crew did landscaping at Kennedy High School. On October 29th we’ll work together for another food drive. We may not worship the same way or all share exactly the same theology, but we do all claim to be followers of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we do all understand as his followers we must love and serve the world around us. Doing that together is a fantastic way to demonstrate our unity in Christ.
