Blue Tape, a color printer, white paper and some shoe leather

That's what it took for us to advertise to a community of 312 apartments here in our area. We've established a FANTASTIC relationship with them. One of our regulars lives in this community and in the center they have a tennis court, swimming pool, clubhouse and workout facility.

At the end of July we did a great outreach event here by throwing a block party for the community. We had hundreds of people come out for a basketball tournament, moon bounces, face painting, football games, free lunch, etc. We heard so much positive feedback about that one that we decided to come back tonight and do a Halloween event we called "Treat Street".

We had a great crowd tonight. We intentionally kept the invitations to just that community in hopes of developing a long-term relationship. The staff have been great and during our last event a few of them remarked "This is the first time we've had anything here where we can have fun with our neighbors." Today for the Halloween event the staff even prepared some pretty sweet bags with goodies for the kids.

In addition to the bags from the managers we gave out seat cushions with our logo as well as candy at every game. Tonight we had 2 moon bounces, music and games for the kids.

As I get pictures I'll put some up. I'm so pumped at what God is doing at Focal Point! Please be in prayer as we follow up this week with all of the families who came to Treat Street '06!

BTW: All of our advertising mentioned "Halloween" ;)
