On August 4, 2015 Plymouth Congregational Church will be participating in National Night Out between 6 pm. and 9 pm. Join us for a movie and popcorn and to say we’re standing together as a neighborhood.
What is National Night Out?
It is a nationwide movement that was nicely summarized by the Philadelphia Police Commissioner in a CBS interview:
Tonight communities around the area are set to join with law enforcement to take a stand against crime. Tuesday marks annual National Night Out, which is a nationwide effort to raise awareness about safety in neighborhoods…
Commissioner Ramsey says, “The first Tuesday of August every year National Night Out happens across the country. It’s an opportunity for police, the community and businesses to come together and renew their relationship, and their efforts, to make all of our neighborhoods safe.”
He adds that residents should come out tonight, but says, “We need to be engaged 365 days a year because that’s the only way we really have an impact on communities. Get involved, stay involved. Take ownership of some of the issues and problems and work with us. A lot of positive things will happen as a result of that.”
At Plymouth Church, we believe our responsibility as part of the community is to offer hope and help to our neighborhood. We will be out between 6 pm and 9 pm tonight as our way of engaging in positive efforts to get involved, stay involved, and be engaged 365 days a year, not just on Sundays. Please join us for this free event.
