Block Party was a Slam Dunk!

Whether you dunked in the 3 vs. 3 basketball tourney or attempted to dunk someone in the Dunk Tank, the Block Party was SO.MUCH.FUN!

We had over 1,000 people walking around the campus of Blackhawk Ministries this past Sunday… 1,000! From 4-6 PM, if you came to the party, it wasn’t hard to find something fun to do!

We had Inflatables… Pony Rides… Face Painting… Balloon artists… Volleyball… Corn hole… 9-Square… Basketball… Dunk Tank… 4 Food Trucks… Live Music… and a Firetruck! Whew!

Even the news came to check it out! WANE TV stopped by and talked a bit with Pastor Kevin Rivers. WATCH THE NEWS CLIP HERE!

The atmosphere at Blackhawk was electric! So many familiar faces and so many new faces! Families from our church, school, and surrounding neighborhoods all gathered together on the beautiful August evening!

Following all the outdoor excitement, families headed inside our Worship Center to “Sing God’s Word” with the SEEDS Family Worship Team! Find out more about this amazing group at HERE.

You could feel the joy as the lights moved around the room and the kiddos sang and waved their glow sticks! At the end, even a few lucky families won a $100 Target gift card, a Hoverboard, and Apple AirPods! What a night!

We’re so thankful to ALL the staff and volunteers that made this Block Party happen! And thank YOU Blackhawk family for inviting your friends and for spreading the word to your neighbors! Without YOU, we would have just had bounce houses with no bouncers… and dry dunk tank volunteers. 😉

It was a great night to #LightTheOneFive!
