Neighborhood News- February 13, 2020

Next Friday evening (February 21) children from 0-10 will be gathering together to invade our church. They will play, play, and play some more! It will be a break from parents, and for some, even from siblings as they are put in their respective ages groups. Here they will have the opportunity to see God’s love in action. Adults that are not their parents, pouring into them with the love of the Father. And you know what else, the title of the evening says it all… Parents Night Out. Four times a year parents have the opportunity to drop off their kids in a safe, loving, fun environment. They get to take 3 hours and ‘remember who they married.’ Click here to listen to last Sunday’s sermon. It’s a win win for kids and parents alike.

If you are a parent of children 0-10 and are either from our church or WOL preschool, you can sign up by Wednesday February 19, and drop off your kids from 6pm-9pm on Friday February 21. Just go to, click on The Neighborhood, then click on go straight to The Neighborhood, then click on Forms and choose “Parents Night Out.” Fill out the registration info.

If you are a church member who recognizes the need for children to have other loving influences in their lives, and/or sees that parents need a night out, sign up at the connection point to help out.  You will have the opportunity to hang out with littles and serve our Church community in a practical way.
