Event description

Serve at Family Week

Family Week is a unique opportunity for any family to come and serve alongside other families and the IBLP and ALERT staff in Big Sandy by aiding in light cleaning, cooking, landscaping, and general work projects. For the entire week or just part of it, families are welcome to experience “the other side” of the ministry while being a blessing to both staff and those whom we serve.

Families are encouraged to join us for morning staff meetings, noon prayer times, and mealtimes. In the evenings they may enjoy special messages and relaxing fellowship time. We are planning this first Family Week to coincide with the Fathers’ Conference, so that Dad may attend those sessions if he chooses.

Our goal with Family Weeks is to provide a unique opportunity of serving other guests in a ministry setting alongside our staff and staff families here at Big Sandy, TX. This particular week would involve serving those attending the Fathers’ Conference, and in preparing for future groups and people who will come to this campus for ministry opportunities.
