Our small group at church was challenged by the church to get to know our neighbors. As such, the church gave us $100 to throw a block party. Well, of course that wasn't enough, but it was a total "fishes and loaves" story. We started by talking about it with our small group. Then we posted on our neighborhood facebook page about getting to know our neighbors by throwing a block party. Then it just blew up!! Everyone wanted in. We had a theme (80s/Living on a Prayer) complete with a costume contest, a band, a company that donated porta potties, fireworks, water balloon fights/tosses, cornhole tournament, LOTS of food, and a ton of fun!!We got to know a bunch of our neighbors through this fun event!!
