Family Fun Day
Part of our mission at Christ Community is strengthening and building families, into the Body of Christ. One way that we do this is through our Family Fun Days. Once a month we gather on a Saturday for a time of fun and fellowship. This is not your ordinary church fellowship though. Too often when church people get together, the men gather in one corner, the women go to another, and the children run off and play. That is not what the family fun day is for. Instead, we plan activities that involve everyone together. We do this for a couple reasons. First is that our goal is to strengthen family relationships. Informal activities involving both parents and children provides a good avenue for this. Children need to have fun with their parents. Secondly, parents need to have fun with their children. Today, parents carry enormous burdens, providing and caring for their children, pressures at work, and stressful relationships. Playing and laughing is a great way to relieve stress and regain ones strength. It is truly re-creative.
If you live in Casey County or a neighboring community, you are welcome at our next Family Fun Day. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org for then next date. Or better than that, visit Christ Community Church this Sunday. You will be glad you did, and so will your children.
