Maine Church Labors for the Neighbors


Twelve members from New Hope Christian Reformed Church in Bangor, Maine, helped to spruce up the Downeast Elementary School in town.

Steve Brakey, community development leader for the church, said “Labor for your Neighbor” was a one-day collaboration of five Bangor churches to help the community in these tight economic times.

When the work was done, overgrown flower beds were weed free, lilacs were pruned, flowers bloomed brightly around the flagpole, and mulch protected the playground equipment area.

Church member Mike Foley said, “This will help our community and make people aware that Jesus is everywhere around them.”
