When we began praying and thinking of ways to bring our neighborhood together the thought of a block party quickly became a reality. After the great success of the first event, we committed to throwing a block party on the last Friday of every month through the end of the summer. It is a great place to serve and meet the people living around us in a very non-threatening environment. With music, free food, and things like bounce houses and face painting for the kids it quickly became something our new friends and neighbors look forward to. Attendance at the first party was estimated at 300 people and through positive word of mouth and excitement in the community we were able to serve over 500 people at our most recent party!
