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 those in his church brothers and sisters. Because God esteems families, we want to show value, dignity, and commitment to the families in our church and in our city with a new initiative: Family Date Night!
Our first Family Date Night will take place Saturday, July 28, from 3-7PM (#happyhourtime). 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 getting to know you ever better so we can continue to serve and love you!
Because of some limitations with space and volunteer capacity, we will only be able to watch kids from 6 months through 4th grade (like a normal Sunday RLA Kids) and there will be limitations on attendance.
We will hold these events quarterly and host them in different regions of the city each time. This first event will be held at the RLA Office in Central LA, so families who live in that region will be given priority this time around…don’t worry, we plan to come to your part of the city soon! And if capacity allows, we’ll take additional RSVPs on a first-come, first-served basis.
