Several times per year 

Kids In/Parents Out 
Kids In/Parents Out events are evenings where kids get to be with other kids and parents enjoy time with other parents.
It is a fundraiser for our high school mission trip. Parents are asked to make a donation to the high school youth who entertain the kids, with all donations going toward the summer high school mission/service trip. 
But Kids in/Parents Out is so much more than a fundraising event. Kids In/Parents Out provides an opportunity for fellowship among parents who have all made the commitment to bring their children up in the life of the church. Often conversations around appetizers and a glass of wine end up sounding like “My kid does that too!” These conversations have led to meaningful friendships as their young children enter their teenage years. 
Kids In/Parents Out is for the kids too! Our youngest kids get to hang out with our oldest kids, who are welcoming and fun to be around. At the church our young ones get to explore the church building during games like sardines, tag, and sharks and minnows. They end the evening with a fun movie and the opportunity to create a craft or color. A pizza dinner is served around 5:30 pm. 
Join in on the fun as we gather together and grow in fellowship with one another. All the while, you will be supporting our high school students in mission!

A Sunday afternoon in December 

Gingerbread House Decorating Party
Each year, we join with Fire Force for this fun event! The entire family is invited for an afternoon of creative fun! We enjoy a potluck lunch and decorate gingerbread houses. This is a great event for grandparents to bring their grandchildren, and for mentors and mentees to do together! Look for more information in November.

Who Are We?
Sheep and Shepherds provides fun and faith development for the entire family! We have activities that vary from time for families to gather together to time for kids to play together and parents to have some fun on their own! Events can include pizza and movie nights, Kids In/Parents Out, a family Halloween Party, our annual Family Easter Celebration and Egg Hunt, and Kids Karnival.

There are also times to share ideas on family faith development, get resources, and learn about issues such as praying as a family, using teachable moments, and leading family devotions.
