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.
