Block Party is a FREE after-school, faith-based program designed to guide children toward spiritual maturity by showing them what God's love really means. Block Party is for grades Kindergarten through 4th Grade (New 5th Grade Pre-Teen Ministry!), and meets September - December and then from January - May. We bus students in from Marble Falls Elementary and Colt using MFISD buses. We've made a few positive changes this year and are always working towards enhancing the program overall.
5th Grade will be picked up and bused in along with K-4th. Then they will be given a snack before joining alongside 6th grade youth.
Students participate in a large group setting for music, story, and snacks before grade-base smaller groups rotate between mission-based and/org take-home crafts and then games and hang-out time.
Spots are limited this year, so sign up now at fmcmarblefalls.com/blockparty!
