We have been thinking of new ways to engage families in spiritual formation during the summer time. So many families travel on weekends during the summer and that means missing worship and all the formation that happens at church on a Sunday morning. How can we empower families to learn to worship together and to remember to take their faith with them on vacation? How can we take church out on vacation with us? Out of these questions grew the Take out Church box. We will be giving a box to every family in our church this summer and inviting them to engage with us online to share how God is moving in them while they are away. Each item in the box is designed to help us live into our mission as a church to “Worship God, Grow Disciples, and Love our Neighbors”. We are in love with this idea and hope that it will continue to grow in our community. As families take pictures with “Flat Jesus” we hope that they will post them on facebook and instagram taged #takeoutchurch so that we can enjoy the summer as a community.
