  • Meet new people and build relationships with people in our Spring Hill neighborhood

 

 

 

Wednesdays at the Hill Team

As you may remember, last summer we installed a basketball hoop, park benches and a picnic table at our Spring Hill campus; we lovingly refer to this space as our “Pocket Park”. The Pocket Park was intended to be a place where our neighbors could connect with each other, and us with them.
This summer, we want to be intentional about connecting with our neighbors, so we are launching what we are calling “Wednesdays at the Hill”. The idea is that through the months of June and July, we will be asking people to show up and connect with those around us, in particular the children from the Spring Hill neighborhood. We will be looking for small groups/teams of people willing to provide and serve a light meal (hot dogs, hamburgers, walking tacos, grilled cheese, etc.), as well as people who would like to engage with kids from the neighborhood through activities such as basketball, football, board games, crafts, etc.
If you would like more information about this summer initiative, or if you already know that you would like to sign up and be a part of this fun opportunity, please email Heather Bielawski at bielawski@fellowshipchristian.org or you can call/text her at 937-308-1799.
