Congregation using nearby bike trail as a means to connect with community
The extension of the Bike to the Sea path in Malden, Mass., is gaining more and more attention since it was paved last summer. For the members of First Lutheran Church, which sits steps away from the entrance to the path, it's becoming more than recreation – it's an opportunity to serve.
First Lutheran, much like Malden itself, has a long history and a promising future. The church is trying to be as creative and forward thinking as city leadership, and the congregation had been looking for ways to serve the community.
The bike path seemed like a natural fit, and so the members at First Lutheran have committed to adopting the section nearest the church.
