Candyland – Note Date Change

Candyland has been moved to Saturday, November 2, due to dangerous weather  Hundreds of children and their families pass through the Christian Life Center for two hours every October 31. We have the opportunity to let them catch a glimpse of the joy of Christ and love the church has for the community.

We need candy — lots of candy! Bring individually wrapped pieces of candy to give to the hundreds of children that will come through the CLC on October 31.

We also need people — lots of people! In addition to distributing candy, we need people to take information, take photographs, lead groups through the Candyland walkway, and people to share the gospel story to the groups. This year, we will do some things a little different. As people line up outside for Candyland, we will be distributing hot dogs. We’ll need people to grill the hot dogs and distribute them!

Candyland is an active, vital ministry of the church that is a place to safely bring your children to on Halloween. We share the love of Christ through his story and introduce a number of families in Whitley County to the church. Spend two hours on October 31 making a difference to the children of our community.

Fridays at First Cookout

There will be a bonus Fridays at First on Friday, August 16, at 5:00 pm. Children will spend two hours having fun, creating crafts, and hearing the story of Jesus both with words and actions. At 7:00 pm, families are invited to join the children for a cookout in the Christian Life Center. Plan to be a part of this exciting event!
