Street 2 Street is a 3-on-3 tournament that takes place throughout NYC every summer. It's a great opportunity for Middle and High Schoolers to compete. At the same time, it is a faith based program which allows time to pray with the athletes and share the gospel.
Well over 100 participants were involved. They received free jerseys, lunch, and water. What a great outreach and opportunity to serve the youth in our neighborhood. Enjoy some of the highlights in the video.

Swerve Church is a new church coming to Bushwick Brooklyn in NYC.
We're all about loving God, loving people, and serving our community. We had a very practical opportunity to serve our neighbors at the 3rd Annual Shape Up Bushwick.
Every year for Brooklyn/Queens Day the residents of Bushwick get together to celebrate a short march around the neighborhood and enjoy some festivities at Irving Square Park. This year, we were able to participate and set up a table where we offered free waters to anyone who was thirsty.
It's is really a part of our DNA to seek our opportunities to serve our community in tangible and practical way. While we were there we were also able to get to meet some of our neighbors and tell them a little about the new church coming to Bushwick.
This summer is full of opportunities to serve and invite others to be a part of this new life-giving, gospel-centered church in the community of Bushwick. Be sure to stay plugged in via Facebook, Twitter, or sign up for our email newsletter.

The Basketball Nets Outreach was birthed in the summer of 2014. Basketball in the city is huge. On any given summer day you can pass by a court and see pickup games going on. Most basketball courts however do not have nets. Last year we visited 3 parks to hang up a total of 11 nets. This year by God’s grace we will be able to do way more, even extending our reach beyond Bushwick. Here’s what we do:
This is such a simple and practical way to serve the needs of our community. At the same time, the nets add a certain look to the court that helps to beautify the park letting people know that they are valuable. We are looking forward to all that God has in store for us this summer.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting two opportunities for the youth of Bushwick to join us in a special free Basketball Camp this summer! We are ironing out all the details, but here's what you can expect. Youth will learn various basketball drills. They will be taught the fundamentals of the game along with skills to help improve their dribbling, shooting, and passing.
We are super excited for this opportunity to bless the youth of our community. However, space is limited. The finer details of the events as far as exact dates and location will be made known soon. But you can expect the camp to take place in the month of July and definitely somewhere in Bushwick.
Visit our Basketball Camp page to sign up to be placed on the list and to have information passed on as it comes. You definitely do not want to miss this opportunity. It will probably be the most memorable part of the kids summer.
Halloween is a great time to be up and about in the community. Tons of people are around trick-or-treating. This year, we will be setting up by Maria Hernandez Park giving away free candy to children in the community.
Along with the free candy, we will be offering the opportunity to get your picture taken absolutely free as well! So come out in your Halloween costume and get your photo taken! Pictures will be posted on to the Serve Church Facebook page where you can share, tag, and like. You can also save it right on to your computer or phone.
You can help make it a success by letting everyone you know about the free candy and pictures. It's all taking place on Friday, October 31st at 6 pm by Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick Brooklyn.
Swerve Church is a new Church Plant coming to the community of Bushwick in Brooklyn. Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. We're committed to the capital "C" church because we know we can do infinitely more together than apart. We will do anything short of sin to reach people far from God because to reach people that no one is reaching, we need to do things that no one is doing. We are a part of NetworkChurches.tv.
