Tracy Church Celebrates
Graduates with Drive-By
Celebration Parades

 

 

 

To celebrate their graduates of their church, the congregation in Tracy, Calif., hosted two drive-by parades—one for their 8th-graders and one for academy and high school graduates. At each celebration, family, friends, and church members took 30-minutes to drive through the church parking lot and congratulate graduates (who were all spaced at least six feet apart). Members decorated the parking lot, music played in the background, and an attendant placed cards or gifts for the graduates on the gift table. Many cars drove through the parking lot several times just to make sure everyone felt the love— waving, shouting, honking their car horns, and wishing them well as they passed by. “We wish we could have done more, but we were glad to have been able to hopefully provide at least a bit of joy to the class of 2020,” said church pastor Tyler Kraft.

Progress Continues on the
Market Street Church
C.O.R.E. House Project

 

 

 

For the Market Street church in Oakland, Calif., the season of social distancing hasn’t slowed down focus on an expansion of their ministry. The C.O.R.E. at Market Street is an upcoming extension of the ministries—a space for both the church and community-based organizations to serve their neighbors in Oakland and surrounding areas. The C.O.R.E. will offer classes (cooking, music, tutoring, etc.), counseling, resource matching, pantry services, office/meeting/classroom space, and more. The building is currently under construction, and is expected to open in early 2021.
