This month's Family Fun Night was BINGO. We alternate with a movie night and a game night. BINGO is fun and everyone can get involved...even the little kids.
We started with a short devotion from Romans 6:23 with an object lesson that involved a candle flame and a balloon that pops and a bloon filled with water that doesn't pop. (Thanks to Marybeth Heatwole Moore for the idea). They LOVED it. Everyone kept saying "Do it again!" We followed with a short discussion which was good and helped me to trust that the object lesson didn't trump the verse. In other words, they understood the point. The verse was essentially: "We pay for our sins with death, but through the work of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for us, God gives us eternal life." A good verse for the Easter season. Praise God for that gift!
Next up was a light dinner (sandwich, chips and dip, and a cupcake). The food part of the evening is always popular.
We had time for three BINGO games. Each time we played until we had a winner and continued until about 8 people had won. Then everyone dumped their beans back into a pile and I erased the board and we played again. So thankful to MaryBeth for the donation of candy for prizes.
Here are some pictures from the evening.
A little abnormal...
Winning a candy prize.
More winners and Fermin pretending to sneak one from the pile.
The littlest ones had a blast.
Fun! Thanks to Sulmi for taking the pictures :-)
