As a church we hope to be marked by the love we have for one another (John 13:35). While Sunday rhythms give us a chance to quickly interact and engage with another, it’s often just enough time to say hi and bye before we’re back in the car. In an effort to cultivate community and build relationships with one another and our RLA Kids volunteer team, we are excited to celebrate Family Connects as a regular rhythm of our church! Our hope is we will spend time getting to know and invest in one another so we can best care for, encourage, and love one another.
Our next Family Connect will take place in May in Glendale. This will be a great time to simply have a fun, loosely-structured day in the park together! We will bring waters, snacks, games, toys, and music. We encourage you to pack a picnic and blanket and enjoy the beautiful park alongside others in our church and community. There is also a jungle gym and parking lot you can access right next to the park! While many of our kids ministry volunteers are planning to attend, they will be there interact with families and kids, so kids will still need to be under a guardian’s supervision while there (so please no dropping off!).
This event is primarily designed as a great time for the families, kids, and RLA Kids Volunteers to connect, but all of us are part of this church family and should be invested in the lives of families in our church; we would love for anyone in the church to attend! We also encourage everyone to reach out to their neighbors and invite families outside our church (Christian and non-Christian alike) to join us as we seek to live our lives in community in our city.
It is a privilege to serve you. We hope to see you at the event!
