Parents’ Night Out
Beginning January 16, 2015, First Lutheran will begin offering free childcare and a simple dinner for children ages 0-12, one Friday a month from 6:00-8:30pm. This ministry is intended to give parents the opportunity to enjoy a night out without the worries and extra expenses of babysitters. We hope that not only will our own congregation members find this ministry helpful and uplifting, but also friends of our congregation families. Children will enjoy games and crafts in addition to being well-fed!
Dates: January 16, February 13, March 27, April 17, May 15 and June 26.
What a Difference a Daddy Makes
We all know that involved fathers boost their daughters’ academic achievement, promote their emotional health, increase their compassion for others, and help set them up for success. Based on the book What a Difference a Daddy Makes, by Dr. Kevin Leman, Pastor Grayl will be leading a fathers’ Bible study that will help give practical ideas, inspiration, and provide specific direction for helping daughters grow into loving, confident, caring adults. Join other fathers in this weekly Bible study beginning in January. Exact day and time of the week will be announced.
Faith in the Home
Caring Conversation - Daily Devotion - Traditions and Rituals - Acts of Service
Last year parents learned these "Four Keys of Faith Formation". This year, we will discuss additional practical ways to implement these keys. Since parents are the most inﬂuential factor in a child's faith formation, First Lutheran Church will again be offering this 3-part Bible study for parents of children ages 0-6th grade on how to continue to teach and encourage faith in the home. Come together to join other parents to learn and share ideas with each other. These studies will be held on Sept. 19, Oct. 24, and Nov. 14. at 6:00-7:30pm. Dinner and childcare will be provided by the congregation.
