From June 2-7 the Impact Singers had the opportunity to SING and SERVE in NEW YORK CITY! While ministering in the Big Apple, the singers and their chaperones stayed at Jan Hus Presbyterian Church. At the church, they attended a workshop on homelessness and street care at their Urban Outreach Center. The students prepared food, sorted clothes and helped organize their thrift area. After singing, they visited with the homeless over a meal.
They also sang and played bingo with residents of Upper East Side Rehab Center and served NYC Parks & Recreation by weeding, planting, and mulching in the Bronx. They sang at Pier 83, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the Neighborhood Esperanza Service (English/Spanish service), and the ArchCare Senior Center.
The Impact Singers served with their whole hearts. Although exhausted, the reward from serving others made it all worth it. Michael Roberts, Director of Music Ministries, said, “God was present with us the entire week. Thank you again to the whole church for supporting us through Broadway Bound and all the volunteer hours that made our trip possible!”
