We believe God is a familial God—that he brings us into his family by adopting us as sons and daughters. (Galatians 4:4-5), and therefore makes his church brothers and sisters. And because God esteems families, we want to show value, dignity, and commitment to the families in our church and in our city. One way we pursue this is Family Date Night!
This event is designed for all parents, married and single. For married couples, taking time to invest in your marriage is one of the healthiest things you can do for your children as a parent and Family Date Night is designed to give you an opportunity to spend time together while your kids are being cared for by our RLA Kids volunteers! For our wonderful single parents, this will be a great opportunity receive refreshment and relationally connect with community and friends.
Families are not just an addition to our church, they are a vital and beloved part of our church. We love you all, and look forward to continually getting to know you more so we can continue to serve and love you!
Because of the practicalities of volunteer capacity, we will only be able to watch kids from 6 months-4th grade, just like a normal Sunday at RLA Kids, and there will be limitations on attendance. While we still plan to head to different regions of LA each quarter, we thought it would be special to have this next event at our new home at the Hope Center in Central LA! Because we’re going to be in the same region as our previous event, families will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis rather than given any preference by region.
