RHC’s visibility in the community is fantastic and their reputation is unparalleled. It really is beautiful to see the character of Christ in the leadership here. No one has anything bad to say about the elders, in fact, all I’ve heard is praise. One Sunday a family from Willis Ave, the low-income housing development we’ve been serving at, visited RHC for the first time and the father, a nonbeliever, knelt down to one of the Turley’s daughters and said, “Your daddy, Tanner, is a very good man.” I’m thankful for these elders who truly exemplify 1 Timothy 3:1-7.
Redemption Hill Church - Soccer Nights
We’re in our final full week of service. This week is dubbed “Serve Medford” and teams from several churches have joined us in Boston to help us complete our mission (including a group from my home church, Crosspoint!). The week we’ll be hosting a camp at the Willis Avenue Community Center where we have freedom to teach the Bible, we’re also helping local businesses by providing free labor for various projects (cleaning, painting, etc), and at the end we’ll host our major event: Community Fun Night.
These pictures are from Sunday’s Serve Medford Orientation, which took place on the top of the Tufts University Library - you can see Boston in the background.
