Area churches host community block party event

Churches host free day of fun for families


Saa said on any given Sunday about 250 to 300 people may come to worship at Lifeway. He said the service is diverse, upbeat, contemporary, but with a traditional message about God’s love. That message continues to bring in new faces, along with the faithful who come out every week.

The block party costs about $14,000 to put on, but parishioners and other donors provide so the day is completely free for those attending.

Children will be able to take home a backpack from the block party, filled with school supplies.

For Saa, it is a way to help keep families together and hopeful during tough times.

Tremblay said the party is bigger and better every year.

“It’s just been a blessing every year,” she said.
