100 Detroit City Blocks to be Restored this Month
Metro-area church joins national nonprofit in the effort to beautify one of Detroit’s west central neighborhoods
PLYMOUTH, Mich., Aug. 7, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — More than 10,000 of the expected 20,000 volunteers are signed up for a great restoration project happening this month in the city of Detroit. Among the ranks will be NorthRidge Church of Plymouth, Mich. On their website Life Remodeled describes theirs goals this way, ” Our strategy includes remodeling a Detroit Public School each summer in order to create academic and athletic improvements. Additionally, we believe that if we partner with the local residents to remove blight in the surrounding area and create safe and inspirational pathways to the school, we will help to sustain and build up a neighborhood that radiates hope to the rest of the city!”
Life Remodeled, a nonprofit organization devoted to “remodeling lives — one neighborhood at a time,” will focus their 2014 efforts on Cody High School and the surrounding Detroit area neighborhoods during the week of August 11-17. NorthRidge Church volunteers will provide and serve the food for all volunteers during the six-day event, as well as participate in general areas. The church plans to have 900 volunteers dedicated to food efforts alone.
“We love the idea of NorthRidge attenders serving the Detroit community, and Life Remodeled is helping make this more possible,” said Michael Miller, Director of Stewardship and Outreach for NorthRidge Church. “Our hope is to see something sustainable come from this; we want to see our spiritual influence continue well beyond just this week.”
With its main location at 49555 N. Territorial Road in Plymouth, Michigan, NorthRidge Church is a non-denominational ministry that serves approximately 20,000 southeastern Michigan residents. Senior Pastor Brad Powell has led the congregation for the past 24 years. NorthRidge offers six services each weekend; four at the Plymouth location and one at each of their satellite locations.
