Woodlawn Block Party

Monday, November 05, 2012

On Memorial Day, the congregation of New City Fellowship is mobilized into the Woodlawn Apartments community to show love in a tangible way to its tenants by inviting them to a meal held at the complex. 
  • Volunteers fixed bicycles, held a children’s carnival, and provided simple medical services. 
  • A service project to create a meeting place/community center at the complex was completed. 
  • A team visited each apartment to invite tenants to the party and offered to pray for the household. 
  • Our musicians provided entertainment. 
This community has long struggled with poverty, drugs and gang violence but each Memorial Day, we try to bring a sense of community and fun to this community.
