Julie Varughese wrote -The Missions Team of New Hope Christian Church located in Jamaica, Queens has travelled the world to proclaim the love of Christ - from Mexico City to Northern India. This year, we are serving our OWN community, Jamaica, Queens. From July 11 to July 14, we will be serving Jamaica, Queens by providing daily community events throughout the whole day. We will SERVE THE CITY.
In the morning we will be at Rufus Park and the surrounding area restoring the park, playing games and presenting story time for kids in the area, and much more!
We've rented out the Jamaica Performing Arts Center for those four days and will be having public outreach exhibits daily from 2 pm to 4:30 pm in the auditorium. The booths are focused on public awareness and community engagement, featuring everything from a medical information table and US Citizenship information table to prayer stations and a music lessons table. At the same time, we will have free student tutoring downstairs to help kids in the surrounding area get the jump start they need for the upcoming school year.
In the evenings (from 5:30 to 8 pm), we will be featuring Amazing Hope Vacation Bible School exploring God's awesome power through Bible stories, singing, crafts and games. Starting at 6:30 pm, in the auditorium, we will have daily Amazing Hope Events where we will host free Christian concerts, each evening with a different style of Christian music - from Jazz to Contemporary! We will also have testimonies and messages about Jesus. On Saturday evening, we will end the Missions "trip" with a SERVE THE CITY celebration!!
Help support this AMAZING four days of events and service. We need you; yes, YOU!!!
