On Saturday, April 22, 2023, Iglesia Cristiana Puente de Vida had a Block Party in the parking lot of College Avenue Baptist Church from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Our sister churches, Kaleo Comunidad Cristiana, Iglesia Nueva Cancion, Iglesia Nueva Vision, and Iglesia Principe de Paz, supported us.
Ninety people attended the event, with 80 people serving the community. We had live music, carne asada, tacos, nachos, popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy, and hot dogs, ALL for free. There was also a photo booth.
We shared the gospel and prayed for people. As a result, ten people came to our Sunday service.
We had a group of new believers serving for the first time. It was an encouraging and exciting experience for them. As a church, it was encouraging to serve the community this way.
Many benefits were a result of renting the SDSBA party trailer. Offering the community, especially the children, everything the trailer gave us was a great blessing. It attracted not only the children but also their parents. It opened ways to reach them, pray for them, and share the gospel. We all wanted to try some popcorn or delicious shaved ice!!
The visitors were grateful that we thought of them and served them this way. Many of them were interested in knowing what we were doing, others asked us for prayers; and this opened doors for some of them to visit us at the Sunday service.
All the Glory to God, forever and ever!!
