I had the opportunity to speak with Reverend Kristi Hintz, pastor of First United Methodist Church in Marquette, about the 4th Annual Neighborhood Block Party to be held on Sunday, August 16 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the church parking lot, 111 E. Ridge Street, Marquette.
Pastor Kristi is very excited about this opportunity for church members and community members to get together for an afternoon of family fun. There will be bounce houses, live music, free food, and the Marquette City K-9 unit will be there for a meet and greet. Children will enjoy games, face painting, a visit with Smiley the Clown, and all children will receive school supplies.
The Block Party is a shared ministry event with First United Methodist Church of Marquette, Grace United Methodist Church in Marquette, and Skandia United Methodist Church. I look forward to attending the party, sharing food and fellowship with the community. I encourage all families to come join in the fun!
