Our church recently hosted a Family Glow Night for all families with children in 3K-6th grade. We have had a glow night in the past, but this one was a little bit different because we decided to hire a local art studio to come and teach a painting class to our families.
One of our goals in our children’s ministry is that we be a resource to parents in their roles as primary spiritual leaders in their homes. We wanted to provide this opportunity for families to spend time together and form a closer bond during the summer, which is filled with activities and events that are constantly pulling family members in different directions. Parents and children were able to work together on paintings, under the black lights, to take home and hang on their walls as tangible memories of that time spent together. It was a very cool moment and a really fun activity!
Below are some photos from the event.
