The following is a report from New Creation Church’s Block Party Outreach. Church Volunteer Network was proud to support this event through our Gospel Support Fund initiative. Thank you New Creation for reaching out to your community with the love of Jesus!
The annual Block Party that Church Volunteer Network supported was a blast! We were able to bring the grills out and feed the community in food and spirit. The event hosted various entertainers, such as praise dancers, worship teams, poets, and gospel hip hop artists that ministered to the community. We also had vendors who not only sold items but participated in raffle giveaways throughout the event. We were able to set up bouncers, and a game truck for the actual kids and the kids at heart. We brought out table games, and old school games like double-dutch, two-square and face painting as well. The kids were thrilled.
I personally believe the most touching part of the day was many of the displaced men/women (homeless) that are considered our locals in the area, joined us for food and worship. Not to mention the new relationships that were formed, and we are currently developing and sustaining.
Again, on behalf of the pastoral staff of New Creation, thank you! You’re blessing gave great outreach to be a blessing to the Arden Arcade Community.
