Open House: A Day Created for You, Our Guest

 

If you’re looking for a church home or if you are looking for a safe place where you can explore faith, we have created a day for you. While churches have a lot of things in common, each church has unique characteristics. We would appreciate the opportunity to meet you and tell you our story.

 

At our Open House you will experience our Sunday morning service along with an explanation of why we do what we do – and why we hope God is leading your our way.

Local churches are continuing the nearly two-decade-old tradition of bringing health services, school resources, and pre-back-to-school entertainment to the community.

 

Each year, the block party distributes more than 1,000 school kits to students grades K through 8, helping save local families the often-significant cost of purchasing semester supplies. In addition, the annual event provides toothbrushes, floss, and free dental and health checks.

 

In addition to hotdogs and other refreshments, the event will feature carnival games and musical performances. 

 

Planned participants in the block party will include area human services agencies and non-profit groups, the Miller Park Zoo and the Humane Society of Central Illinois (both weather permitting), and Bloomington Fire and Police Departments. The Book Bike also will be onsite, with a book giveaway, along with face painting by the Zoo Lady, a raffle for kids’ bikes, FunBelievable Balloons, a bounce house, a cake walk, and an incline wall from Upper Limits.
