Pastor Jason (Southway) and Pastor Scott (Peace Presbyterian) explain our plans for the Easter Weekend Block Party.
Summer is approaching and that means it's time once again for Vacation Bible School. This week, Sean gives us a brief preview of what's in store as Southway hosts SonSpark Labs!
Here’s the lowdown for all things Easter Weekend. Included are times, things or people we need, and a description of the time so you can know what to expect as you participate, and as you are inviting folks to join us.
Good Friday Service
-Time: 5:30 p.m.
-Place: Worship Center
-Description: We will come together on Good Friday to remember the cross, and why it was necessary.
Block Party-Time: 2-6 p.m.-Place: Westside Events Center-Description: We are partnering with Peace Presbyterian Church to host the block party for folks coming and going at Westside. Last year, we saw nearly 1,000 folks come to participate in some way and this is a great opportunity for us to show love to folks who may be far from God. You can come for part or all of the time. -Needs: We need volunteers to run the bounce house we are providing, and to help prepare and pass out hot dogs and bottled water. Further here are the material needs we have: -Hot dogs (meat/bun/relish/ketchup/mustard)for 100 people -Water for 100 people

We are combining with Covenant Community Church for this day, so we do expect a full Worship Center for both gatherings.
*We will have a photo booth for you to get a free family Easter picture inside the main building. The booth is available before the 9 a.m. gathering, in between gatherings, and after the 11 a.m. gathering as well.
