Neighborhood Fellowship

Neighborhood Fellowship allows us to meet residents where they are. The Lord has opened up some amzing doors to tell families about Jesus off of Dorchester Road. We push forward no matter what to show the residents that God loves them despite their curcumstances or surroundings. We do Neighborhood Fellowship on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. In fact, we are going out into the neighborhood this Saturday- meeting at the field behind Alex's restaurant at 3713 Dorchester Road at 1:30 pm. By 2:00 pm we will be hitting the streets passing out food, praying with residents, and showing love to the sick and down trodden. We have been blessed every week we go into the neighborhood.

Last year we visited an older lady every time we did outreach. The lady was 99 years old and her 60 year old son would see us waking down the street. The son would call us over and say "don't pass our house". The mother was laying on a bed in the middle of the living room. We would bring her food and she would walk and put it in the kitchen. Later on she would just be laying in the bed and she would say "let's pray". She said "I know I am going to heaven, so I am not worried". She loved to pray with us. One Saturday we went by her house and she was dead- her son said she passed away. We know this is one lady that will go to heaven and she blessed us with her willingness to pray and invite us in the house. We hope she is praising Jesus in heaven and asking Jesus to bless Take It To The Streets and our our team. In fact I am sure she is praising Jesus and one day we will she her in heaven in her revived body where she is not confined to the bed. This lady who was 99 years old saw the power of the Holy Spirit at work. There is now power greater than the power of God at work within us. It is the type of power that can move mountains. We have so many stories just like this of the Church being the church outside the building- Let's continue to Take It To The Streets.

A servant of the Lord- Jesse
