This Saturday, August 20th is Riviera Baptist Church's first community Block Party!
We've been working on this outreach event for a long time, and I have to say, I'm really excited to see it all come together.
There will be tons of fun activities for the whole family. In the Kids' Corner, we'll have two -- count 'em, two -- bounce houses. There will be a caricature artist and face painting. And we'll have tons of other outdoor games for everyone to play together.
We'll also have food -- a must-have for any afternoon activity. There will be a snow cone machine, bags of fresh pop corn, and for dinner, a hot dog basket and lemonade. It even comes with a brownie!
Then, on the main stage, we have a series of concerts from local Christian music groups. At 3:00, we'll see a group from Beautiful Mess, which is sure to be a treat. Then, at 4:00, we'll have another group that has members from Eugene, Springfield, and Albany. They're very entertaining and spiritually uplifting.
Around dinnertime, we'll also have a special guest interview with Pastor Toby Gallego: The University of Oregon's championship golf coach, Casey Martin, will share his powerful testimony.
We'll close out the evening with some music from Riviera's own worship teams.
It's going to be a whole lot of fun -- and everything is free! So come on out and join us this Saturday from 3:00-8:00pm, and invite your neighbors and friends!
Musically and faithfully yours,
Worship & Media Director
