Stettler Home Church block party comes to Erskine

Erskine played host to community members as they had a fun time at the block party.

On Wednesday, July 26, Erskine’s Women’s Club Park came alive with bouncy castles and music as Stettler Home Church hosted the last of its block parties in the community, outside Stettler.

“The Erskine block party was a lot of fun, and had many families come out and enjoy the experience of visiting and mingling with one another,” said Shawn Acheson, pastor of Stettler Home Church. “It was very generous of the community to give us such a great location to host it in.”

Like the block parties in Big Valley and Botha, Erskine had a good turnout with kids of all ages enjoying the refreshments and the main attraction, the bouncy castle.

The next block party will be hosted in Stettler.
