Father’s Day & Donuts for Dads - Next Sunday!

Join us next Sunday for Father’s Day as we celebrate and love on all of our amazing dads! We’ll have our annual “Donuts for Dads” - so all the dads will get a little Krispy Kreme treat, plus a few other surprises. This is going to be a fun day, so don’t miss it!

Next Sunday in Kid City - Augusta National Golf Course!
For Father’s Day, we couldn’t think of a better “dad sport” than golf. So we’re having an epic golf competition with a few of our dads during the service. Also, since our dads are getting Donuts for Dads - kids - you’re getting Donut Holes-in-One! Parents - help your kids “look like dad” by dressing them in their best golf attire that Sunday. Then, take a picture with their look-a-like at our photo booth in the lobby and post it using #GolfLikeDad.

For 9 weeks throughout the summer, you’ll get to help with fun games & activities, interact with the kids, and help make it an awesome environment every week!

BOTTOM LINE: The perfect dad is close even when I am far away.

Luke 15:20 NLT

20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.

1. Dad already knows.

Luke 15:20 NLT

20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.

2. Dad looks for progress not perfection.

Luke 15:20 NLT

20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.

3. Dad is not ashamed of me.

Luke 15:21 NLT

21 His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.’

Luke 15:22 NLT
22 “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet.

Luke 15:23-24 NLT

23 And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, 24 for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.

4. Dad celebrates the new forgetting the old.
