His Toy Store is an awesome way to practice our values. As a church we will love God, love people, and serve our community. Participating in this outreach was a great way to do just that. Beyond that, it's great to be able to partner with other churches and ministries such as Living Waters Fellowship. We truly believe we can do far more together than we ever could apart.
We want to say thank you to those of you who faithfully give to Swerve Church. Because of your generosity we are able to participate in outreaches just like this one. Next year we hope to mobilize even more volunteers to be able to serve at an even greater capacity.
We will lead the way with irrational generosity!

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.

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!
