 February 2018

On February 21st, we are going to introduce Family Time at The Well to the grandparents, parents, and children of The Well program of the church. The purpose of Family Time at The Well will be to offer the families whose children come to the well an opportunity to sit down and have a meal together and to have time to visit with one another after a day of work and school. The food will be prepared by “Family Cooks”, that is, teams of people from our church family and served to the families of the Well who will be joined by a “Family Host”, who are also people from our church family, at their table.

This is a new ministry which has come out of the work done by our Discipleship Journey team, which has been to study, learn, and find new ways to reach out to the people of our Pryor Community. We have reached out to these children for many years through an after-school program and now are extending this ministry to their families and offering them the opportunity to stop and have some quality family time.

Recently, I came across a quotation that I thought might be fitting. It comes from a web-site called “Family Time”. And it says this:

“Children learn to bring balance to their lives when they see their parents setting aside time for what they value.”

One of the things that I have discovered about this day and time in which we live is that having family time not only keeps us together, but also helps us to have healthy relationships and live healthy lives. And in this day, the only way to ensure that something gets done is to be intentional about doing it.

Since we offer our Well children the opportunity to have a relationship with God, we hope that this becomes something that they can share with their families and can value in their life together. Please be in prayer for this ministry and please let us know if you would like to help either with being on a team to prepare the meal or serving as a Host.

In Christ’s footsteps we walk, Pastor Roger
