At New Hope Church of the Nazarene we have been surrounded by plastic orange walls since Easter and we are excited to see the road work finish up before long. The site managers have been really helpful as we look to replace our old wooden fence with something a bit more modern.
Some may wonder why we have a fence at all, as the church is meant to be an inviting place. We definitely understand those feelings! The fence will run along Nixon st. because we are concerned about keeping our kids safe. As cars and trucks pass by we want to be sure that balls, toys and especially kids don't get into traffic. As with any family, our children are incredibly important and we also want to minimize any disturbance to traffic from balls or toys rolling out there.
If you have ideas as to how we can be a blessing here in Whangarei, feel free to leave us a comment!
