Neighborhood blitz

4/28/2017

In south Oklahoma City, more than 1,000 volunteers made repairs on 35 homes in the Heronville Elementary neighborhood on April 8. Those serving included members of the Asbury campus of St. Luke’s; one group is shown offering bottled water at the school. Their Asbury T-shirts were made by Chuck Jackson, standing at back. The church was the center that day for cooking and assembling 1,400 hot meals to feed everyone, said Connie Barnett, campus pastor, and provided advance storage space for the repair supplies. The annual workday is coordinated by Rebuilding Together OKC. Among other United Methodist churches supporting the effort were OKC-Chapel Hill, OKC-Church of the Servant, and Edmond-First UMC.
