KINGSPORT — With summer breezes come festivals and concerts nearly every weekend, 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, will hold “ROCK the Block” at Memorial Park, Fort Henry Drive, across from Dobyns-Bennett High School.
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 from 2 to 7 p.m., and Brad Blackwell, a rising country star and a native of Kingsport, will perform from 7 to 9 p.m.
As a church, theROCK’s desire is to serve the community in whatever way possible, and so the church members have designed an entire day to do just that.
Hamburgers, chips and water will be provided for free for the first 2,000 people.
Also provided will be free clothing along with tons of giveaways throughout the day.
Local organizations, businesses and restaurants have teamed up to provide refreshments and other goodies throughout the day.
theROCK Church launched in March 2009 with the vision: “To Pay Whatever Cost, to Point People to the Cross.”
The church is led by Pastor Billy Riner and has an Internet campus at iROCKdoU.com.
