J.A.M..... Jesus And Me...

"I am writing on behalf of Jesus And Me (J.A.M.) Explosion 2005, this is an annual community event held in the Martindale-Brightwood Community. The event takes place on June 25, 2005 at Oasis of Hope Baptist Church. J.A.M. Explosion is in partnership with Indy Parks, Oasis of Hope Baptist Church, other local churches and several community organizations. Last year J.A.M. Explosion was attended by 2500 to 3000 community residents.

J.A.M. Explosion is the culmination of outreach and community development efforts spearheaded by Oasis of Hope Baptist Church, and several partnering churches and community organizations in an effort to create an opportunity for the community to to address these issues experience unity and revitalization. This all day celebration, for all people of all ages, is filled with fun, entertainment, recreational and athletic events, clothing give-away, various health and dental screenings, food pantry and much, much more. The Martindale-Brightwood Community is an area plagued in high crime and various health issues. It is our contention that community celebrations such as J.A.M. Explosion are important attempts."

[Oasis of Hope Baptist Church is a great partner among the growing "CCDA Indy 2005" 'Host City Team' as we work together to glorify God and enjoy Him forever... TOGETHER. If you're not yet part of this city-team effort... by all means, consider yourself warmly invited. We meet on the first Friday of every month (July 1st), right here at the cafe at 30th x Central. See you then!]
