It is a good thing to reflect and celebrate all that God has done for us this year and to look forward to what He has planned for us in the coming year! Our New Year’s Eve Party is a great way to celebrate together as families with the greater Church family! We invite you to join us for this family-friendly party! We’ll pack out the auditorium with interactive inflatable games (bounce houses, obstacle courses, bungee run, Velcro wall, etc.), carnival games, and a photo booth! For a minimal cost, they’ll be pizza AND soda AND Tasty-Time Ice Cream will be here to!
Aside from a wonderful opportunity to celebrate together as a family, as we think of our efforts in evangelism and reaching the people of Folsom and surrounding areas, this event is a great tool! Simply invite others to join us as we celebrate — in essence to invite them to a family party! With that in mind, I’d like to challenge each of us to think about 2-3 families who don’t typically come to church and invite them to come with you that evening: families at your child’s school; on their soccer team; in their boy or girl scout troop; in the neighborhood, etc.
For a growing or young family, it can be difficult to find good things to do as a family that doesn’t cost an arm and leg! This year, tickets are $8 per person or $30 per family (refreshments – pizza, sodas and ice cream – will be available for an additional cost … so it should only cost you a finger or two!).
Each time we’ve hosted this party in the past, families have a ton of fun together. We’ll have things for the little guys all the way up to adults to enjoy! I hope that you can make it and will make the effort to bring with you a couple families who can experience Oak Hills Church as we bring in the New Year!
Here are the details: Dec 31st (obviously) from 6-9 pm. Tickets are available beginning this Sunday, Dec 12, at the Spotlight Booth for $8/person or $30/family.
As with many events, this party will need a handful more volunteers to make it possible. If you can help with decorating, set-up, monitoring the inflatables, cooking, or clean up … please let me know! We could use another 10-15 people to help us make this a successful event and a great first impression to our friends/neighbors/guests! Contact me at 983-0182 x19 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
