City Lights Block Party
As you may know, construction is in full swing for our Beyond initiative at River Oaks. In lieu of Summer BLOCK Party this year, we invite you to join us in partnering with City Lights Ministry for a community outreach project to help share the hope of the gospel with children living in the Belview Community.
On Friday, May 17, we will have a workshop at River Oaks from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. This will be a fun night for the whole family and will include music and snacks (no childcare will be provided.) Everyone will to work together at multiple stations to create cards, assemble mission dolls, and fill 200 backpacks with food and crafts. The backpacks will be distributed the following Saturday to a deserving group of kids at City Lights Ministry.
On Saturday, May 25, City Lights Ministry will host a block party at the Belview Community Center to bring awareness of their services to those in a new neighborhood. Volunteers are needed from noon to 3:00 pm to serve food, distribute backpacks, assist with crafts and bounce house and interact with the children during the Bible program. All volunteers will be required to complete a City Lights application and background check, as well as attend a mandatory training on Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30 pm in the ROCC gym.
Summer BLOCK Party is our VBS with a twist!
