Once again our Children's Ministry Team will be offering a "Parents' Night Out" on June 14th from 6 - 8 pm. All parents need to do is check their child (or children) in at the children's center and then enjoy several hours of being together or running errands. The children will be entertained with water games and a fun night. They will also be working on a "Father's Day" project. Refreshments are provide for the children. Due to the weather forecast, there will be no water games this coming Friday - all our activities will be indoors (no need for kids to bring bathing suits). We will do a Father's Day craft on this night. *If parents have matchbox cars that they do not mind loaning for this evening, please bring them along. Thanks!
