Light on the Corner Church recently hosted its second annual Grandparents’ Day, an afternoon full of activities meant to bring grandparents and their grandchildren closer together in a fun and friendly environment.
“The importance of grandparents cannot be overestimated,” said Kiana Karn, children’s director. “We wanted to have a day to honor them and also create a space where they can easily have fun with their grandkids of all ages.”
The day’s activities included a photo booth, Bugs Bunny cartoons on the big screen, and a bunch of old-fashioned gadgets that were brought out for grandparents to show the kids how to work their technology for a change. The items included oil lanterns, rotary phones and old cameras. Pac-Man was the video game of the day. Attendees were able to wear their best “old-timey” outfits to the event, if they wished. Young ones who didn’t have grandparents available were paired with elderly church members who became their substitute grandparents for the day.
All generations are invited to attend Sunday morning services at 10:45 a.m. where they will be met with quality teaching, fun music and a welcoming atmosphere.
