Family Night is an annual event at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. Pastor Marcus Hawkins says the event will have great information that can help families work together as a unit. This year the teaching sessions will be broken up into three groups so that all members of the family will be addressed separately. Fathers will learn about being “Priest, Provider and Protector” of their families, Mothers will learn what it takes to be “Godly” and children will listen to how they can strive to be “The Golden Child.” Family night will begin with everyone together in the sanctuary and will continue with everyone breaking up into separate groups. The three groups will participate in discussion and have a chance to win some nice door prizes. The sessions, geared to help families learn their role within the family unit, will last about 45 minutes. At the end of the sessions, everyone will convene back in the sanctuary where a handful of Madison County agency representatives will give out general information on issues affecting families, such as education and how to make healthy life choices. The event will end with dinner being served in the fellowship hall. Pastor Hawkins said the event is well attended, but really wants to encourage Fathers to be present. Annual Family Night at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church will be Monday, Sept. 16 and will start at 6 p.m. The event is open to the public and Hawkins says, “I encourage anybody and everybody to come.” For more information about the event, you can contact the church at (850) 973-3127.
