REFRESH 2015

Is an event born of a vision from a partner church in  New York City. 

 

Pastor Steven Dilla, along with a few other community churches, pooled their resources and went to an impoverished neighborhood in the lower East side of Manhattan.

 

Together they put on an incredible block party ... with a purpose! 

 

The purpose was to provide hope, love, and community through tangible needs.

 

They provided food, music, haircuts, face painting and bibles.

 

It is a party that the people in that community look

forward to every year!

OUR GOAL
