Community BBQ and Potluck on Simeon Street this Saturday

A big part of what we believe at the Network Church is that blessings are meant to be shared--and community is one of the richest blessings of all. For that reason, we've invited the surrounding community in the Central Frederick Neighbourhood to join us for a potluck BBQ and block party this Saturday. This is the first time that we're holding this event, and we hope it won't be the last!

We've received permission from the City of Kitchener to close off Simeon Street between Krug and Brubacher, right in front of our regular meeting spot at 103 Simeon Street. We'll be providing hamburgers and sausages, and we're asking our neighbours to bring something to share for potluck, if they're able.

We'll have activities for the kids, including face painting, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and a bouncy castle.

Here's what to bring to the event:
  • a side or dessert to share (see some ideas below)
  • lawn chairs
  • plates and cutlery, to help reduce our impact on the environment. 
Looking for ideas for the potluck? Here are just a few suggestions that are always hits:
  • Veggies and dip
  • Potato salad
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Nachos and salsa/guacamole
  • Watermelon
  • Any other fresh fruit
  • Rice Krispy Squares
  • Bite-sized brownies
  • Raspberry pie
I could go on...

We're looking forward to a great time together as a community!
