Be Hope Church Hosts Community Block Party (WITH GALLERY) – The Tribune
Part of the Tuesday Night Concert Series
SOUTH POINT – In a city with several historic 19th-century churches, Be Hope Church, opened in 2020, is a young place of worship.
But as evidenced by attending their community block party at the Ironton Farmers Market on Tuesday, they’ve already built a strong following.
Pastor Robbie Brown said the event and accompanying outdoor service are part of Hope Week and this is the third year they have hosted it.
The church was chartered at the Ro-Na Theater in the summer of 2020 but has since relocated to the American Legion building next door at 310 S. Third and has worship services every Sunday at 11 a.m
The Ironton Church is a subsidiary of the Be Hope Church in Beaver Creek near Dayton.
Farmers’ market visitors could enjoy live music, cotton candy, Kona ice cream, bouncy castles, cornhole and face painting while listening to the message of the church.
Brown said other activities during Hope Week include community service projects and community members have participated in cleaning up the Ironton Riverfront and repainting playground equipment at Etna Street Park.
Today they are participating in a wall building project with Habitat for Humanity.
He said the church is also preparing for a special event on Sunday, September 11.
“We’re calling it the best Sunday ever,” he said, saying her Sunday service that day will be filled with “craziness and fun.”
Events at the farmers market were also part of the Tuesday Night Concert Series there. These concerts will continue in the coming weeks.
