FAMILIES:

The Gift Of Family Time

The Family Ministries team and a host of volunteers have been delivering a gift box to our families with children from 0-18. We are calling it the “Gift of Family Time”. Each box has everything a family needs to enjoy some fun together, including a snack, games, a gift for each child, and a family devotion which involves the whole family retelling the Christmas Story. Even though Christmas may look different this year we hope you will make some fun memories of this “Gift of Family Time” spent together.
