My teammate Ethan Magness spoke on Psalm 137 – one of the imprecatory (asking for God’s wrath on the wicked) psalms – challenging topic which he handled with accuracy and grace. Here are the notes I jotted down during the message, and this is a draft of the small group study guide.

God of this city NYC 09 – beyond words

Posted in NYC at 11:28 PM by alexlozada

Six MCC people (Rocky R, Jonathan W, Michael M, Trina Mc, Heather & I) served w/ Church of the Incarnation, Forefront Church, and Westchester Indian Chr Ch in a quick NYC mission trip Friday 31 July – Saturday 1 Aug. Friday, we gave people flyers about COTI kids basketball camp – Trina & Heather had the most success w/ going to Columbus Av / Amsterdam Av merchants, asking to them to post a flyer in their stores. We gave away free granola bars in Madison Square Park – Trina & Heather had the most success again by the 23rd st & Broadway corner  🙂 though the whole team determinedly persevered through the pouring rain! The day ended w/ a little sight-seeing, late night SI ferry ride to see Statue of Liberty.Westchester Indian Chr Ch kids

Saturday morning, we worshipped with other Love NYC Day volunteers at Forefront’s Upper West Side campus.

Saturday afternoon, we helped WICC w/ their first children’s event. After a debriefing discussion during dinner, we drove back to MCC, arriving at about 2a Sunday morning (!) – a whirlwind two days, but worth every minute (even the parking ticket – sigh).WICC outdoor time
