A local church is reaching out to the Wabash Valley and doing it in a big way.

Saturday, Second Missionary Baptist Church hosted a community block party.
Its part of the church's friends and family weekend celebration.
Attendees enjoyed food, music, games, and other activities.
Clothing and school supplies were also handed out to students getting ready to head back to school.
Organizers says the purpose of the party was to start a conversation with neighbors in the area.

"We opened it up to the whole community because we are trying to being people together in our community," Michael Potter, a volunteer at the event said.

The fun's not over yet.

The church is inviting the community to a special service Sunday at 11 a.m. 
A meal will be served immediately following that service.
The church is located at 1400 Oak Street.
