The Rev. Dale Walters, Joy Fellowship’s senior pastor, said the block party aimed to show residents that area churches could work together.

"We're not here trying to draw anyone into anything," he said. "We are showing them that we have love for one another, and that we can go across any denominational lines."

Another function was bringing the neighborhood together, Walters said.

"I'm sure there are a lot of people in this neighborhood that live here who have never met each other," he said.

One new resident appreciated the meet-and-greet opportunity.

"I didn't move here until last week," said Brian Collett, who will continue his service in the U.S. Air Force. "I thought this would be a good opportunity to get out and see everyone in the community."

Steve Young, who has lived in Rolling Pines with his wife and 2-year-old daughter for the past three years, said he has noticed many military members moving into the neighborhood.
