About this Church Plant
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest,” says Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.
In the spring of 2014, a group of faithful laborers stepped into one of the ten original churches in Lincoln. The church was surrounded by a neighborhood marred by the darkness of addiction, homelessness, and violence. The residents of the neighborhood, in spite of that darkness, desired deeply the restorative possibilities of the Gospel and the redeeming reality Christ provides to all who follow Him, a great harvest to be had.
After five years, many from this original group remain and even more new faithful have come. These folks strive to connect with a neighborhood in pain, and much fruit has come from the presence of F Street Neighborhood Church in Lincoln’s Near South neighborhood. People have been entered into recovery from addiction. They have found wholeness and community, acceptance and direction.
Most importantly, they have come to Christ. However, many people remain unreached, untouched. While the magnitude of the task is not lost on those who serve the F Street family, they go to work in His Kingdom joyfully, unwearied in well-doing and ready because “in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.”
