“ROCK THE BLOCK 2013” INVADES KINGSPORT: THE ULTIMATE FREE EVENT
An Event Sponsored by theROCK Church, Kingsport
With summer breezes come festivals and concerts on every turn, but one church in the area is going above and beyond to not only provide entertainment for the community but also serve them. On Saturday, June 1, theROCK Church, is hosting an extensive community event called “ROCK the Block” at Memorial Park in Kingsport. This city-wide event will feature fun for the entire family with inflatables for the kids, game stations, and much more. The family fun will be open during the afternoon hours from 2-7pm, and then a special concert will take over the evening from 7-9pm featuring Kingsport’s own Brad Blackwell.
As a church, theROCK’s desire is to serve their community in whatever way possible, and so they have designed an entire day to do just that. Hamburgers, chips, and water will all be provided for FREE for the first 2,000 people. Also provided will be free clothing in a reverse yard sale style, and tons of giveaways throughout the day. Local organizations, businesses, and restaurants have also teamed up to provide refreshments and other goodies throughout the day.
theROCK Church launched in March 2009 with one simple vision in mind, “To Pay Whatever Cost, to Point People to the Cross”. Led by Pastor Billy Riner, theROCK is now known as a group of people focused on SERVING people and breaking down barriers that most people have about “church” or “Christians”. theROCK was one of the first churches in the region to have a fully functioning internet campus that broadcasts live every Sunday morning and Thursday night from their website iROCKdoU.com and were featured in the Kingsport Times-News for their new approach to ministry.
