This year, River Oaks is partnering with City Lights Ministry to host a Summer BLOCK Party for children in the Belview area. It will be two hours saturated with excitement, gifts, and biblical highlights. There are a few ways you and your family (or small group) can participate in this exciting outreach community event.

1. SBP Outreach Event: Saturday, May 25 - noon to 3pm
The event takes place at the Belview Community Center. We need volunteers to serve food, assist with crafts, interact with the children during the Bible program, and distribute backpacks. (Volunteers participating in this event will be required to complete a City Lights application and background check, as well as attend a mandatory training in the ROCC Gym at 6:30pm on Wednesday, May 22.)

2. SBP Workshop: Friday, May 17 - 6:30-8:30pm
To prepare for the SBP, River Oaks is hosting a City Lights workshop that will be a fun event in itself. Join us in the gym where there will be multiple stations for friends and families to work together to create cards, assemble mission dolls, and fill 200 backpacks with food and crafts. The filled backpacks will be distributed as gifts to the Belview community children on May 25.

3. Donate: drop-off by Sunday, May 12
Yes! There’s even a third option. If you are unable to participate in the SBP outreach event or workshop, you may be interested in donating items for the 200 filled backpacks we’d like to supply for the children. Items include: Mac & Cheese (shapes), Goldfish (Mickey Mouse and Rainbow), Cambell’s Soup (Incredibles, Star Wars, Spiderman), 8-Count Kellog’s Fun-Pack Cereals, Fruit Snacks, Chewy Dipps Granola Bar. Donated items may be dropped off in the Kid’s ROCC lobby by Sunday, May 12.
