[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]On the warm Sunday afternoon of June 21st, families were busy celebrating and honoring their fathers for Father’s Day. Members of the Church of God in Ridgewood, NJ, too, hosted a BBQ for their friends, families and neighbors. Bright and happy faces streamed into the church to enjoy delicious home-cooked food and desserts.

As guests enjoyed their meals, they watched as members put on performances ranging from a choreographed step dance to a vocal quintet, including a soloist singing traditional Korean songs that resounded beautifully to the diverse audience.

After the live performances, guests were reminded of the love and sacrifice of their own fathers through touching videos and stories. While many reflected on the times they shared with their dads, guests were also reminded of the love and sacrifice of our Heavenly Father who does all things for His loving children.

Throughout the rest of the evening, even first-time guests enjoyed games together as a family. Laughs and smiles were shared over competitive games like Ping Pong, Bean Bag Toss, Jenga and even Chess.

Visitors were also surprised to receive a personalized card that included an instant photo with their family members from their fun day. Sons and daughters took the opportunity to write heartfelt letters to their visiting fathers inside of the cards, making for very memorable and emotional moments. The evening ended peacefully with guests leaving the church in high spirits and even desiring to return soon. The Church of God is pleased to always be able to share the love of God through any occasion.[/vc_column_text][vc_images_carousel images=”11364,11365,11366,11367,11368,11369,11370,11371,11372,11373,11374,11375,11376,11377,11378″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” mode=”horizontal” speed=”5000″ slides_per_view=”2″ autoplay=”yes” partial_view=”yes” img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
