Date and Time: 
Monday, July 6, 2015 - 1:30pm


Opportunities abound for families to spend time together at Gathering. 

Every afternoon from lunch until dinner time

Family Time Options include:

The Family Place: a gathering place to play, read, relax and learn together - open daily from 1:30 - 4:30 pm  

Balls and frisbees, board games, dress up clothes, riding toys, and lots of books can be found here. These can be used in the Family Place or some can even be checked out, like the books in the Junior Gathering Library. Want to have a pick up soccer game? Check out a soccer ball from the Family Place, round up a team and play! There are usually quiet places to grab a nap in air conditioning on a hot day.  Some afternoons there is a topic for parents to discuss while chidren play nearby.  Often musicians, storytellers, and jugglers are invited to provide a short entertainment. Look for Family Place in the Daily Bulletin to see what's available.


Multi-Generational activities, like Capture the Flag, Sidewalk Chalk Art & more, are planned for afternoons from 1:30- 3:15.  Check the Daily Bulletin each day for additional information on these and other Family Friendly activities.
