Family Meals

SNL Meals are Family Meals: We invite all children, youth, and adults to come as a family to SNL Meals from 6:00-6:45 pm in the Fellowship Hall. This is a chance to be together as a family and as our church family.

Payment and Reservations: Make your reservations online (below). Please reserve your spots by Wednesday at noon. Register with the number in attendance rather than each individual. Instead of a price per meal, donations are accepted to offset the cost of the meals. The suggested donation per person is $4. You may make one donation at the beginning of the season, or make a weekly donation. Donations can be made online by designating your donation to SNL Meals.

Who is providing the meals? Each week a different group is in charge of gathering items for the meals. Families will be invited to donate items by using a Sign-Up Genius. When you bring an item for the meal, you can either request reimbursement (save your receipts!) or you can choose not to donate money at the meal that evening.


Worship & Sacraments
Worship & Sacraments is a parent/child class offered during Sunday Night Live each fall. Children in 2nd grade or older, if they have not ever participated, are invited to bring a parent for this 5 week class that uses interactive activities to expose children to the language of the sanctuary, the structure and meaning behind the parts of worship, and the wonder and mystery of the sacraments of baptism and communion.
