Outside of the annual Hanover Tomato Festival, the BLOCK Party that Fairmount puts on every other year is the largest free event that takes place in Hanover County. We anticipate 2,000+ people to attend our BLOCK Party. This year’s BLOCK Party will be held on Saturday, September 13th at Cold Harbor Elementary School from 3:00-6:00 p.m.
Let me remind you of what makes our BLOCK Party special:
First, it’s a completely FREE event. We are inviting our neighbors to come out to Cold Harbor Elementary School and have an afternoon of fun for their family for free. No strings attached.
Second, it provides us with opportunities to meet and engage in conversations with the families that live in the closest proximity to our church. We get introduced to them and can hear from them what their greatest needs, hopes and dreams are for their families and for our community.
Third, it moves us away from our church building and into the community. It’s very easy for us to become isolated at our church building with all of the events and activities that take place here. However, it is essential that we intentionally move beyond our own walls. We are taking the church to the community instead of having the community come to our church.
Finally, it brings our church together as we work to accomplish a huge event. The volunteer needs to pull off our BLOCK Party are enormous and yet everyone at Fairmount comes together with enthusiasm and excitement to make it happen. As a minister, to see a church work together like this is a wonderful blessing.
