Love your neighbor. Be honest. Does reading those three words make you a little uneasy? Does idea of opening up your calendar and maybe even your home to the people around you make you nervous?
Well, we have an idea for a fun way to break the ice — a neighborhood block party!
We’ve assembled a step-by-step guide for hosting your own neighborhood block party. This time of year, the weather is nice and folks are in a festive mood. It is the perfect season for throwing a fun shindig for you and your neighbors.
It’s also a good time to start planning for a spring fling in your neighborhood.
So, get started! Click here to view and download our neighborhood block party kit.
Remember, you don’t have to go it alone. Invite some of your Stonebriar folks to join you to help. Want to talk more about block party ideas? Email us at ML@stonebriar.org.
When you do your event, snap a few photos and share them with us! Use #lovewhereyoulive on Facebook, instagram, and twitter so we can celebrate, pray, and learn with you!
“Love your neighbor” is something Jesus asks us to do. We have to do it, but it doesn’t have to be dull. Throw a party! Who knows where the friendships and conversations that result might lead?
