Family Forward Events
Life can be hard. Recognizing the unique need to come alongside families in meaningful ways to help families move forward on their LIFEjourney, St. John produces a variety of fun “Family Forward” events, experiences and intentional opportunities for parents and kids to connect and encourage each other throughout the year.
Riding on the high-energy kid experiences that St. John is known for, “Family Forward” events have included:
- Disney’s Incredibles 2, Sing, Finding Dory, Inside Out and Frozen-Over Movie Nights
- Real Encounter: BMX Bike Motocross Stunt Spectacular
- FX Live: a Nickelodeon Slime time-like Family Game Show
- Family Fun Day’s Event at Bryan Hill School
- Easter Eggstravaganza Events
- VBS Live!
We believe it is important to implement a strategy that encourages the family to participate together in meaningful activities. Many industries (schools, local recreation departments, arts communities, etc.) understand this principle – you increase your potential to influence a child when you influence the family. We want to grow the entire family in their love for Jesus and to take home and continue the faith conversation throughout the year. We believe dedicated and focused “Family Forward” events can build stronger families who love Jesus.
