Growing up I watched Mister Roger’s Neighborhood before heading out to school. There was something soothing about watching a man in a cardigan sweater change his shoes and invite us to be his neighbor by singing the song “Wont You Be My Neighbor?” Listen to these lyrics.
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?
We have multiple opportunities to be connected with our neighbors as part of our Community Partnership effort. Join us as we cover the streets of our community and get to know our neighbors. You will be provided with prompts for paying attention, gathering insights and learn how to share your observations and experiences. Here are four ways you can join in:
- Meet Faith friends at the Binford Farmer’s Market on Saturday, June 23, 9 AM- 10 AM. We will mingle with our neighbors, do a little shopping, and bless those around us.
- Pick up a map of our target area and indicate what section you will make an effort to cover on your own feet or wheels, beginning Sunday, June 24.
- Plan for a group walk in our neighborhood, Saturday, June 30, 9AM- 10AM
- Indicate your interest in exploring our community in a series of church van expeditions, covering locations that aren’t safe to access on foot or bike.
Join us as we cover our neighbors with prayer, gain insights into our community, and learn to be a good neighbor.
