Evangelism - Block Party Trailers
Block party trailers are a mobile and easy way to share the Gospel through neighborhood and church events. Each trailer is equipped with assorted indoor and outdoor games, cotton candy, sno cone and popcorn machines and more. The trailers also came equipped with a sound system and outdoor lighting, for ease of hosting backyard Bible school and other evangelistic events.
Equipping - "The Few"
