CRESTVIEW — Rain didn't stop the Crestview Area Ministerial Association from providing a block party for Rolling Pines residents on Saturday.

See a photo gallery or watch video of the block party.

It also didn't stop neighborhood children from enjoying CAMA’s inflatable slides and bounce houses.

It definitely didn’t deter residents from enjoying hamburgers and hotdogs provided at no charge.

And that’s just fine by CAMA, which wanted residents to enjoy the fruits of event organizers’ labor — and, hopefully, take a larger message from the get-together.     

"We just want people to know that God loves them," CAMA acting President David Van Zandt said, adding the association wants to provide an annual block party at different residential areas.

Van Zandt, Dorcas Baptist Church’s pastor, said several area churches, including Joy Fellowship, Live Oak Baptist Church and Global Missions Baptist Church, volunteered for the event.
