At VBX Block Parties this year, your kids will learn that the Christian life is full twists and turns that can leave us feeling like we’ve taken one step forward and two steps back. Through crafts, games, and more, the kids will discover that Jesus is holy, trustworthy, forgiving, worth following, and for everyone. It will be a blast, so invite a friend and join us as we see how Jesus guides us through all the twists and turns of our lives and how following Him changes everything!

Questions and Answers

1.  What is a VBX Block Party?
It's a community of neighbors gathering together to have fun and talk about Jesus.

2.  Why are we doing VBX Block Parties?
Sherwood Oaks is a church on a mission to help people in our community grow in their relationship with Jesus. The VBX Block Party is a tool that will help us accomplish this mission. It equips the church to build relationships and have spiritual conversations with our neighbors that will continue even after the event is over. It's also a great way for groups of friends, Life Groups, etc. to connect with and serve families in their neighborhoods and communities.

3. What if I don't feel comfortable leaving my child at someone's home?
That's okay! Parents can choose to register their kids at a block party where they know the site leader and/or some of the volunteers. In general, though, the block parties take place in neighborhoods/ communities--where people already know each other. Also, all the site leaders and volunteers are required to complete background checks and a training.
