What is Fam Jam?
Fam Jam is geared for families of elementary aged kids, but the whole family is invited to attend this 3-night interactive experience. We have created an environment that is safe and clean for the family. With concerns of the pandemic still in the minds of so many, we have made this a family event so that parents feel free to stick around with their children. We highly encourage all parents to attend Fam Jam with their children. If parents are unable to come, we will assign a qualified volunteer to stick with children whose parents cannot attend due to work or other circumstances. We will be continuing to follow proper health procedures to ensure the well-being of all attendees and volunteers. Starting at 7pm, join us in the Main Sanctuary for a showtime full of games, music, Bible stories, giveaways, and so much more! After service we will have food and fun in the Lobby! This is a great, FREE event to invite your friends and neighbors!
Why Fam Jam?
One of the best ways to stimulate the rhythm of a family is to create frequent shared experiences for that family.
The premise is simple: parents and kids need time together in a shared environment on a frequent basis. However, instead of getting kids excited about what their parents believe by putting them in a service designed for adults, shouldn’t we be doing the opposite?
We should get parents excited about what we are teaching their children by putting adults in an environment designed for kids.
Why? Parents have approximately 3,000 hours in a given year to influence the heart and life of their child. In comparison, we as a church have approximately 40 hours with your child each year. It’s simple math. If you want to influence kids, you need to start with those who have the most potential to influence them: you, their parents. That’s the idea behind Fam Jam, it’s a place where kids take their parents to learn.
Creating a shared experience for families reflects the idea that what happens at home is more important—more consistent, more lasting, more influential in the life of a child—than what happens at church.
Fam Jam is an experience that’s designed to be shared by parents and children to help them do family better!
