IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER

Sun, Mar 1, is Young Families Sunday with Mary Flo Ridley of birds-bees.com. We expect this to be a profoundly helpful morning for parents developing confidence and competence in speaking to their children about sex. Be there!

Also, remember that Sat, April 18, is our Family Fun Day! Again, we're going to have the whole campus open for crazy fun activities! We'll have all the fun stuff for the little kids, even more of the ropes course open this year, the canoes, and even fishing in the morning! 


We have permission to post this for just one week, so you need to click ASAP to hear this excellent teaching about raising up our children to know timeless truth utilizing timely methods! The recording will disappear on Friday, February 28. When you click the button on the page, enter the password "equip2020" (lowercase). We hope this blesses you!


We are so excited about this opportunity for families to have a serving adventure together. Lighthouse hosts retreats each summer for families that have received a diagnosis of childhood cancer. We have the opportunity to go and serve these families Jul 19 - 25. Even very young children can have a role, as they play with the kids on the retreat families and help to make it a sweet and restorative week!

Fri, Mar  6 - Sat, Mar 7

Come hear Sean Michael Lucas, a dynamic speaker, Pastor at Independent Presbyterian-Memphis, Professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, and one of the historians of the Presbyterian Church in America speak about how the Scriptures address race, ethnicity, and culture! This free event will aid in you in raising up kids who love and serve well because of the reality of the gospel! 


On or around Mar 21, hire a sitter, get out of the house, and discuss something that doesn't revolve around the kids! We have free "well-known" conversation starter booklets to help you with that part, which you can pick up at YF Sunday. 


It may sound crazy, but our last Young Families Sunday of this ministry year is Mar 29! Definitely mark your calendars for that one, as our new Young Families and Young Adults Outreach Leader Tony Thomas shares. You won't want to miss it!
