Amazon Smile | D4CUpcoming Family Fund Day Events

Each year Disciples 4 Christ hosts 5 Family Fun days on several of the units in the Gatesville, Texas area. These events are centered on “Reconciliation of the Family Unit”, thirty offenders and their families are chosen by the unit Chaplain to participate in the weekend activities. Beginning on the Friday before the big day, volunteers arrive to decorate the chapel and set up the different activities while the participants attend parenting classes designed to help the offender interact with their children during the event and how to stay connected afterwards. Activities include: carnival games, minute-to-win-it competitions, arts and crafts, a photo booth, pie making competitions, scrap booking, lunch that is followed by a children’s church service, Daddy daughter dances and balloon release ceremony. The day is filled with joy and laughter and everyone manages to forget about the razor wire that encamps them.
