Rock the Block is the largest and one of the most fun, community outreach events that our church holds each year! It’s a fall festival for families with carnival games, inflatable rides, a mechanical bull, pony rides, music, hay rides, lots of food, and more! It’s all free to all participants, and it coincides with Downtown Apex’s Trick or Treat event, which brings in many families that do not have a church home. From the event last year, we had 14 families that subsequently became involved with our church who did not have a church home previously! We need your help to make it all happen!
Here are some ways that we need volunteer assistance this year (every area has 2 or more shifts so that you will be able to enjoy the festivities as well as volunteer):
Prayer - It’s the foundation for all our events, so let’s make it a solid one! Commit to praying either before the event, or while it’s happening.
Food Prep and Serving - Chicken wings, fries, popcorn, cotton candy, lemonade, and more - we need a lot of hands to prep and serve our carnival fare.
Registration Tables - Are you friendly and speedy? First to engage with our guests, we need a large team to quickly register our expected 2,000 guests.
Carnival Games - What’s a fall festival without carnival games? Let out your inner carnie and help us run a gym full of fun games for the kids.
Inflatables - Want to win a popularity contest? Come and be everyone’s best friend by helping us with our most popular attraction - the giant inflatables. This year we’ll have 2 slides, a bounce house, an inflatable obstacle course, a mechanical bull, and a toddler play area.
