Block Party

A Duncan Falls Youth Group would like to invite you to a block party, dedicated to spreading the word of God.

Last year the United Methodist Church Youth Group decided they wanted to make a difference, and for the first time sponsored a block party here in Zanesville.

"These teenagers were not Christians a couple years ago," said Youth Leader, Debbie Gheen. "And they believe their lives have changed because of it, and they’re just trying to pay it forward."

The day will include free food, games and music. Volunteer Coordinator, Joyce Krouskoupf, said, the day isn’t a fundraiser of any kind, they just want to spread the word of God.

"Because we already know God is going to be there," said Krouskoupf. "And they’re going to be feed physically, but we’re hoping they get feed spiritually also."

The block party will be Thursday the 23rd, beginning at noon, at the Salvation Army in Zanesville. Last year about 700 people attended.
