What is Date Night?
Date Night is an outreach ministry of Grace Church of Sebring. Every second Friday of the month we provide babysitting from 6pm to 9pm. Parents take this opportunity to go on a date, go grocery shopping, or even just relax at home. We feed the children, present them a Bible lesson, and do a craft with them related to the Bible lesson. Volunteers help out in the nursery (0-3) or school-age children (PreK-5). Our ministry is free but we do take donations. The donations go to the GCBI volunteers’ Israel trip, Kid City University scholarships, or youth volunteers’ Momentum trip.
Kid City families, Grace Church attendees, and families from the community all patronize Date Night. Not everyone that comes to Date Night has a relationship with Christ so we try to be intentional in our interactions and relationships with both the parents/guardians and children. It’s also to nurture volunteers’ gifts whether it be teaching, children’s ministry, etc.
We are very excited about the growth that has occured over the last year. We have grown to be a steady team of volunteers and have become fellow workers and friends in the Lord. Each month we have around 30 kids with this past month being the highest amount with 36 children. We have made our dinner healthier by providing apples and juice with 100% juice and no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
