On Saturday, September 12, the team collaborated with Pastor Dale Stephens in his outreach around the Lincoln Homes neighborhood. The morning was dedicated to introducing this new church plant to the community. Riverside’s outreach pastor, Tim McNeeley, served as the team’s host for the event.
The morning’s strategy included canvassing Lincoln Homes. The Abante International Colleagues alongside Riverside Church members, visited residents door-to-door, networked with neighborhood leaders, and invited residents to Riverside’s new home church location.
The team met at the entrance of Lillian Cooper Shepard Park. There they engaged in a clean up effort that took them beyond the park and around the community. Connections were made, and the love of Christ was shown through simple acts of kindness and the exchange of stories.
