Nightly from 6:00 – 8:15 pm
God created the home as the “seat” for spiritual development. With this in mind, our church is making an intentional effort to partner with your family by offering Faith at Home this summer. Faith at Home is a family-focused experience where preschool, children, youth and parents will gain a better understanding of what it means to truly be a family planted in our community and our world.
The event will include Bible teaching and activities for all preschool, children and youth, while providing a special session for all parents led by Dr. Dennis Wiles. Families will have the opportunity to interact together in a ministry project and family worship. Dinner is included each night and the entire event is free!
Mark your calendars now for Sunday, June 22 – Wednesday, June 25 from 6:00 – 8:15 pm. As we strive to influence our community, begin thinking of other families that would benefit from this week and invite them to join your family. These four nights of Faith at Home will touch the lives of every member of your home from the youngest to oldest. Click here to register your family for Faith at Home.
