The “Annual Block Party brings neighbors together in an event that inspires and grows wonderful relationships and ongoing engagement among North Minneapolis neighbors and friends from surrounding communities,” says Kelly Chatman, Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church, which has been a vital part of the Harrison neighborhood for over 100 years and its non-profit partner, Redeemer Center for Life, has been active there nearly 20 years. “With our neighbors and partners, Redeemer offers attainable housing, health programs, and entrepreneurial opportunities that break the cycle of poverty and open a door to new possibilities, adds Chatman. “Together, we advance the vision of a beloved community, where everybody matters, each child is valued, and the world is a place of safety and belonging.” More than 800 people attend the Annual Block Party hosted by Redeemer and its many partners.
Everyone is welcome to the 16th Annual Block Party on Wednesday evening, August 15! Bring an appetite and be ready for fun. Come; share in the vibrant relationships and life of the Harrison neighborhood and North Minneapolis.
