Family Dinners

Over a month ago we started hosting “Family Dinner” every Wednesday night at our church, where we would feed all of our after school program kids and their parents who came to pick them up, as well as anyone else who would like to join us. We have realized what an impact eating together can make on children.  We teach them manners (they have to be “excused” to get up from the table), we have the older kids act as “servers” for the younger kids at their table, we do Bible verses and a blessing, we have family devotions, and then do dessert.  Last week we had 75 people.  One of the verses we have taught the kids is Revelation 3:20-21 “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with me.”  How thankful I am that the Lord has invited us to HIS dinner table-to eat of His goodness and grace, and enjoy sweet fellowship with Him. Where O, where would we be without HIM!

After dinner all the kids gather on stage and

all gathered to close in prayer.
