The Outreach team at FOB has been praying and waiting on the Lord for direction and guidance for a neighborhood outreach that the community can participate in together. During the past few months, after Prayer Meetings and a Treasure Hunt, the Lord has brought them to a community along Lockwood Ridge Road, near 17th Street called Leisure Lakes. For 3 Saturdays in November we will be doing an Outreach called “The Wall” in 3 parts. If you feel would like to participate in something great, please call the church office and we will find a place for you.
PART 1: Tearing Down “The Wall”: Saturday, November 5
Removing the broken entry wall and replace it with landscaping. Meet at 8:30 AM at The Living Sanctuary to prepare for the work day. The team needs 40 volunteers to do replacement work, and for canvassing the neighborhood. Bring your own refreshments, and wear a white t-shirt.
PART 2: Block Party: Saturday, November 12
