Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church And Police Department Host Community Block Party
Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church (MBCC) will host a free community block party in conjunction with Crump Police Station at University Place Apartments to bridge the gap between law enforcement and surrounding community. This event is a part of the church’s annual day of citywide outreach, also in partnership with Jesus Loves Memphis.
“What the city of Memphis needs more than anything is for the body of Christ to come together and show it some love,” says Senior Pastor J. Lawrence Turner. “That aligns with our plans for this event, to show the city that Jesus loves Memphis.”
Attendees will have access to services such as health screenings, a clothes closet and panel to discuss ways to decrease violence and restore the city is just one of many activities that include food, music, giveaways and fun.Community partners that will be present at the event include Shelby County Schools, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis Light Gas and Water, The Eye Center at Southern College of Optometry and many more.
MBCC members have also committed to serving the city in various locations including the Bernal E. Smith Sr. Boys and Girls Club and Mid-South Food Bank from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event is free of charge, and anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to sign-up at theblvd.org.
