TGIF “Thank God, It’s Family Night”!

Families of all sorts are welcome to this informal event that happens six times annually on a Friday evening. Parents, g-parents, aunts, uncles, single parents or guardians are welcome to this program. Recognizing how exhausting parenting can be, come and rest after a busy work week.   Arrive as your schedule permits, any time after 5:00 pm. The program is from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and includes a simple meal that is child-friendly.

TGIF offers families a second or alternative experience to Sunday morning. If you have to work a Sunday shift or be away, TGIF gives your children (and you as parents!) a meaningful way to nurture faith.

After collecting your name tags, enter into the evening’s craft as a family unit. The evening will have a faith-based theme, which you will discover quickly! Following the craft time there may be a plenary activity and then a circle time for a brief time of story, prayer and singing (often with actions for the children!).

After hand washing and singing grace together, we enjoy a hot, comforting meal prepared by dedicated volunteers. A donation basket is circulated to cover meal and craft expenses. Of course, if you wish to make your regular church offering/gift as well at this time, you are most welcome to do so.

(For information about Pre-Authorized Remittance – PAR – as a way to make giving easy, contact the Church Office )
