Family Night

Family Night is a once-a-month gathering when families meet at Fourth Church or at an off-site location for an evening of fellowship and often food. Each month’s Family Night has a theme. Family nights are generally held on the third Friday of the month during the fall, winter, and spring.

Check back monthly to see if reservations are required. Freewill donations are accepted, but there is no cost.

   La Posada Family Night
   Friday, December 19, 2014
   5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Join us on Sunday, December 19, as we celebrate Christmas with our La Posada Family Night, a unique tradition from Latin America.

La Posada is a journey that families take throughout the church, knocking on doors in the Gratz Center as they look for "room at the inn" just like Mary and Joseph did more than 2,000 years ago. Your family will visit several "inns" before heading back down to the final door: the Borwell Dining Room, where we'll have a shared dinner.

After dinner, we'll head over to Anderson Hall for some games, breaking piƱatas (always a popular part of the evening!), and singing Christmas carols.

Hope to see you there!
