Neighborhood Block Party 2015 Recap

While princes and princess managed through the cloudy weather that came the night before Halloween on October 30 2015, a special event was taking place. First Baptist Church’s Neighborhood Block Party was taking place at the home of our very own Meriwethers. Varying games and fun events were planned for the expected superheroes and visiting cats, everything from sizzling hot dogs, to blow up bounce houses that seemed to bring out the kids in even the church’s staff. While turn out started slow at first, it soon picked up once the volunteer members of the church got out on the streets. Thankfully the rain that had been threatening to spoil the event held off just long enough for the block party to end and for clean up to begin. David Jennings, family and children’s minister seemed thrilled with the turnout for the Block Party. “We wanted to reach families that where there and show them God’s love,” said David. “Next year we hope to each even more families.” Most families that stopped by seemed to love the event, especially for all of the kid friendly activities the church put on. On a night of cloudy weather First Baptist Church’s Block Party certainly was a beacon of light, music, fellowship and most importantly an example of the love of Christ.
