For Families with children 3 years old through high school

Life is busy…  You are busy…  You have school, sports practices, homework, school clubs, and so much more pulling you and your family from one direction to another every day.  If you are like the rest of us, that probably means you are worn out.  And tired parents make for bad conversationalists.  We end up telling bad jokes like:

“What time did the man go to the dentist? Tooth hurt-y.”  OR

“Whenever the cashier at the grocery store asks if I would like the milk in a bag I reply, ‘No, just leave it in the carton!’”

How do your kids react to your bad jokes?  If they are young, they call you silly.  If they are reaching the teenage years, they call you names – names that hurt sometimes.

For Family Bible School this year, we want to give you permission for three nights to slow down.  To take time together to talk.  To read God’s word together.  To pray together.  To play together.  To eat something that isn’t handed to you in a bag out of a window…

Because we love your family, and we want to help you weave the love of God into your family.  So, please join us JUNE 19-21 from 6-8:30pm to invest in your family.  Moms, Dads, children, grandparents…  We long to see you all here. 

We can’t promise that you will have better jokes, but we can promise to give you opportunities to do much more than tell jokes.
