Dear Resurrection Brooklyn Family,
This summer Resurrection Sheepshead Bay has four summer mission teams coming to Brooklyn to serve alongside us by staffing and running our summer camp. Let’s welcome them to Brooklyn and thank them for their service by inviting them into our homes one night during their stay for dinner. Our mission teams going back to Sandy recovery have always testified that the highlight of their trip was being hosted for dinner.
Each team is about 20 volunteers. You host the number of people you feel comfortable you can handle and can physically fit in your space. In the past, we’ve usually set dinner at 7PM to allow the team time to get back from their work day and get cleaned up and rest for a bit. If 7PM is too early or too late for you, there’s flexibility but we don’t want to go earlier than 6:30PM or later than 8PM.
And please feel free to order take out rather than cook if that’s preferred. And feel free to tag team with other RB families. The main thing is to welcome them to your home, thank them for their service, and give them an opportunity to experience what day to day life in Brooklyn looks like.
The dates for dinner are:
July 10th – Hope Church Memphis, TN
July 17th – Signal Mountain Presbyterian, TN
July 24th – Stonebridge Church Community Team 1, Charlotte, NC
July 31st – Stonebridge Church Community Team 2, Charlotte, NC
Please look at your calendars and let me know what dates you can cover, how many you can host, and if you are willing and able to accommodate dietary restrictions. Email me here.
Peace of Christ,
Pastor, Resurrection Sheepshead Bay
