Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd would like to welcome you to the 2020 Block Party - a Play-At-Home extravaganza!
While we didn't kick off the summer in our conventional way, this year we moved many Block Party favorites online for your enjoyment. While everything was released on June 6, it will continue to remain available all summer long for you to enjoy and share.
Thanks for stopping in and playing at home with us!
Performers that you would have seen at the Block Party are performing here throughout the day. Check out the ones below that have already performed and check back later to see the great artists that are still to come.
