The purpose of the FamilyFuel Nights is to nourish families physically, emotionally and spiritually to live the abundant life offered in Jesus Christ.
To gather families with children, share a meal and conversation, and then divide into separate children, youth and adult classes for age-specific games, worship and/ or teaching.
This ministry is designed for families with children 0-8th grade. "Young" refers to the age of the children, not parents! There will be childcare for nursery and preschool ages, classes for Kidzclub for K-5th, Middle School Youth Group for 6th-8th grade and classes for parents. High School Youth Group is held on Tuesday nights. Single parents are welcome, as well as Grandparents in the primary role of raising children 0-18yrs.
The meal is free, homemade and nutrious. We hope this does several things; removing a barrier that might keep families from attending. Removing one more stressor for families mid-week in having to prepare and clean up a meal. This provides family members the chance to connect with eachother over a warm meal. The meal provides families a chance to connect with other families as well. We also hope this provides the ministry team and their volunteers an opportunity to be in relationship with the families.
Register your family
The event is always free but we would love to get an idea of how many to prepare for. Please click the registration link and let us know who to expect. If you have invited a family last minute and they are not signed up that is fine, just try to have them sign up by the following week.
