Like the women at the tomb, we awaken to God’s incredible promise… death does not have the last word! Jesus is risen!
We welcome you to join us for Parents’ Night Out!
PNO is a time for kids ages 4-12 to come together for mac & cheese dinner, fun, crafts, games, and a movie, while parents get a few hours to rest, relax, or even have a fun Friday night out!
Kids will be supervised by church staff and volunteers. All volunteers are members at Grace Lutheran and have had background checks.
This is a FREE event to benefit our Little Kitchen Food Shelf. Free will donations to LKFS are gladly accepted online or in person, or you may bring a non-perishable food item to the event if you wish.
We will serve dinner starting at 5pm. Kids can also bring their own dinner if they like, or come having already eaten.
There will be games, crafts, and options for story time. We’ll close the evening with a movie night (G-rated) and end at 8pm.
Questions? Contact Pastor Emmy.

From Niki: “Practice will be slow, deliberate, and breath-based linking each movement to either the inhale or the exhale. You will still be strengthening your physical body, but the pace will be eastern, not western. Smooth and steady. We will start by getting to know one another, exploring breathing techniques, and learning where our physical sweet spots are. I am privileged to be a part of a lineage (set of techniques passed from teacher to student) that believes we are a system, and when part of the system is out of balance we are out of balance.”
Once a month, during our regular “Faith Exploration” education time, we take the opportunity to come together as one “family” made up of many families (parents and kids, grandparents and great-aunts and grandsons, single folks, couples, and every other shade of family) to explore our faith together through questions, conversation, and art.
