Gravel and Grace

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. – Galatians 6:10

The Woodland Heights Community Group from The Fourhundred recently decided that one practical way they could love and serve each other was through checking off each other’s “To Do Lists.” They circulated a sign up sheet at a few gatherings where people wrote their name, followed by one or two to-do list items (home projects, work-related projects, babysitting, etc). They now plan to have one work day every 4 to 6 weeks, and knock out a few items from the list each time.

They recently had their first work day, and the target was Will and Marla’s house. Will and Marla had recently neared the end of a basement remodel after it flooded last summer. Unfortunately, Will’s work schedule got crazy, and with Marla being pregnant, progress on the basement was slower than anticipated. This is where their Community was able to step in. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, over a dozen ready workers from the Woodland Heights Community showed up to help serve them. They spread gravel in their driveway, hung a fence, lime washed some brick walls, removed painters tape that was cemented onto some copper piping, caulked around the baseboard trim, and so much more! Not only did it draw them closer as a Community, but it was extremely fun and satisfying knowing that they had tangibly served and helped one of their own.
