We had an incredible time serving our neighbors last week for Bushwick Love Week showing God's love in practical ways. This included block and park cleanups, hanging basketball nets, giving away hundreds of bottled waters, granola bars and even over 350 lunches!
This would not have been possible if not for the hard work of Victory Baptist and First Baptist Great Falls. Thank you so much for following God's leading in serving the people of Bushwick.
Thank you also to those of you who financially contribute to Swerve Church. Your generosity helps to fund these projects and to share the love of Jesus with the people of Bushwick.
Swerve Church is a new church forming in the community of Bushwick in Brooklyn which is in NYC.
We love Bushwick!!! Do you?
We're starting a new initiative called "Bushwick Love Week" which will start next week July 20 - 25. With this we would love to ask, what could you do to serve a neighbor or your community during Bushwick Love Week? Here's a few of the things we'll be doing:
We'd love to hear what ideas you have to serve someone next week. Let's start a servolution. The Bible teaches us to "serve one another in love" (Gal. 5:13). So why not join the initiative and serve a neighbor, a friend, family member, or your community?
Join in on the conversation on social media. Post your pictures and videos using the hashtag #BushwickLoveWeek. Let's make it happen!
We had an awesome time at our Summer Bushwick Basketball Clinic! What a fun time of learning the game of basketball. Children learned how to dribble, shoot, and pass, along with lessons on working hard and good sportsmanship.
We are so grateful to the Longhollow and GenSend teams who helped to make this clinic happen. We are especially grateful to our parents and kids. It could not have been made possible without you! We look forward to providing more opportunities for the beautiful families of Bushwick soon!
It's been a while since we've posted here on the blog. Mostly because we've really hit the summer full steam and head on. So far the summer has been full of opportunities to serve our neighbors and community.
Check out the highlights from the Bushwick CityFest. Though it was a rainy afternoon, that didn't keep people from spending time out at Irving Square Park right here in Bushwick. We had live music, activities for the kids, awesome BMX stunt bikes, and free food!
Be on the lookout here as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more opportunities like this one to meet us or to serve alongside.
