East Heights United Methodist Church joined with 40 churches on April 25 to clean, plant, paint and build during LOVE Wichita, a citywide day of service. Church members of all ages and skill levels served at the Robert Dole VA Medical Center, the Hilltop Neighborhood cleanup, the College Hill Pool and United Methodist Open Door. A team also cleaned up the grounds at Jefferson Elementary School, the church’s ministry partner. Improvements also were made to the church’s Natural Playscape playground. About 100 people from East Heights served throughout the day.
