How Did Family Focus Night Go?

Families worshipped and worked together at least week’s Family Focus Night at Harvest Riverside.

After a time of music, Jason Pendleton, a ministry leader, gave a brief devotion on the importance of communicating as a family, especially at mealtimes. He solicited answers from kids in the audience and rewarded them with lollipops, much to their delight. Then the kids went to separate classrooms to do an activity, while parents stayed for a teaching from Pastor Jon Lee, discussing the importance of identifying the right priorities in our lives.

When the children returned from their activity (also on the topic of priorities), families worked together on a project to benefit the community. The adults cut fabric into scarves, while the kids colored and stitched together packets—each packet holding a warm scarf and a gospel tract. These packets can be used to open conversations at convalescent homes, hospitals, and homeless shelters in the area.

If you missed the January Family Focus Night, be sure to give it a try in February. The next one is scheduled for February 20 in the Topher’s Place Theater at 6:00 P.M.
