Locals can eat ice cream, jump on a moon bounce and catch music and theater performances at a Logan Circle church’s festival that begins today.

The three-day celebration at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (1514 15th St. NW) aims to bring Logan Circle residents and nearby churches together through food, music, games and prayer, according to organizers. St. Luke’s is working with the St. Thomas Episcopal, 15th Street Presbyterian and Foundry Methodist churches on the festivities, which end Sunday.

“Our goal is to begin a conversation that transcends race, class, sexual orientation, gender, family status, national origin and all the artificial boundaries that divide our community,” St. Luke’s rector Ray Massenburg said in a statement.
