Steppin' Out

Steppin' Out is an annual Blacksburg Tradition! It's a festival the first weekend of August where downtown is shutdown and blocked off for vendors!! There were HUNDREDS of vendors and people from all over the New River Valley came to participate!! So, as an outreach we gathered together as a church and passed out over 300 bottles of water, to show the love of Christ in a practical way! We had a great time, got the name of Jesus out to the community and told them a little about Northstar while we were at it!!

We gave out all of our waters in like 30 mins, so we headed to the other teams and helped out!

All the Pastor's and their families (minus Carolyn, Jeff's wife, taking the picture!!)

We had a great time!! It was also quite effective because we've had a ton of people come to church the next day saying they got our info at Steppin' Out from when we were handing out waters!! Awesome experience--hope you can be a part of it next time!!
