Louisville church cancels weekend of services to do landscaping projects for local schools.

Northeast Christian Church served the ward as it landscaped 30 local school campuses in Jefferson and Oldham Counties on Sunday morning. All Church campuses canceled weekend activities and traded sermons for services. This allowed members to focus on the work to serve the students and provide them with beautiful spaces to return to in the coming school year. “A church is not ‘Christian’ if its faith is not expressed through action,” said Tyler McKenzie, senior pastor for Northeast. “What you know is important, but what you do with what you know makes all the difference.” Love The Ville School Blitz started “flashing” the Clifton community eight years ago after its success. Northeast realized that their partner schools had the resources to get their buildings ready for the new school year, but were struggling to get the site ready. Northeast responded by pruning bushes, pulling weeds, putting fresh mulch and working to spice up the campuses. “Northeast members drastically changed the appearance of the building’s facade and staff morale by performing the School Blitz,” said Dwayne Roberts, principal of the Zachary Taylor Elementary. “Nothing beats going back to work and a new school year with well-tended grounds.” The group of schools included the 11 partner schools of Northeast: Breckenridge-Franklin Elementary, Chancey Elementary, LaGrange Elementary, Norton Commons Elementary, Oldham County Preschool, Portland Elementary, Semple Elementary, TAPP High School, Westport Early Childhood Center, Westport Middle and Zachary Taylor Elementary, and any public elementary school in Je ff erson or Oldham County that has at least three Northeast families with students.
