Family Connections

Child of God Lutheran Church and School wants to help support your family as they grow in all aspects of their lives.  Most Connections opportunities will be an hour or less because we know today’s families are busy and want to stop life, if just for a short time, and connect with each other.  Below are a list of Connections opportunities for you to consider spending some quality time to help grow your family and stay connected.

Family Connections:  One Saturday of each month from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. (Unless special event and will be notified with *) Each month will have a different theme and include a family devotion, activity and fellowship.  You will also be given family devotions and parenting information to take home each month. Example of some Family Connections could include:

  • Family Nights
  • Blessing of the Backpack/Family Fun Fair
  • Build-A- Fort
  • Fall Festival/Trunk or Treat
  • Family Workout on the Playground
  • Birthday Party for Jesus/Tree Decorating
