W.A.R. Block Party Brings Out Over 500 Locals

With this in mind, Madisonville’s Truth Apostolic Church held an all-around entertaining Block Party for the second year running.

Beginning around 11am at the corner of S. Seminary and Princeton Pike, the W.A.R. (We Are Responding) Block Party offered the community a variety of free activities and entertainment, including lots of prize giveaways, a food table, a massive bouncy castle/obstacle course, a jousting ring a la American Gladiators, a basketball game, a cardboard testimonial, and live musical performances by the singers of the Truth Apostolic Church and Dawson Springs’ Star of Bethlehem Pentecostal Church. In addition, members of the Madisonville Fire Department had a fire truck at the scene as well as a booth with stickers and other youth-friendly items. The Mid-West KY Chapter of the Red Cross also had a booth at the event, which offered free water and information on their mission.

While at the venue, iSurf News spoke with the Truth Apostolic Church’s Pastor, Michael Orten, who explained a little more about the purpose of the Block Party.

“We’re just trying to reach and serve our community as a church here in Madisonville,” said Orten. “We’re trying to win as many people as we can to God. While some churches try to take from people, we want to give something back to the people. We want to try and get them to give their heart to God. That’s the main purpose. The bible says, ‘If you want a friend, you must first show yourself to be friendly,’ so we try our best to reach our community. We just want to show everyone that we can all come together and serve Madisonville, because, truthfully, I have to say it’s still the best town on Earth.”

Orten also took time to thank everyone who was in attendance or involved, such as Senator Jerry Rhoads, Mayor Will Cox, Mayor Candidate David Jackson, WTTL, and the entire community for all their attendance, support, and donations.
