What is "Date with God?"
It's an evening of chocolate and roses, Scripture, music, candles, and being reminded of God's love for us
Our first " Date with God" went beautifully last year, and I'm already looking forward to the one we're having this February 4th.
Friends and I began it last year at our church, fashioning it after a similar Date with God idea that is done every February at Concordia University, Irvine.
We adapted ours to be for jr. high and high school age young ladies.
The girls dressed up for their "date," and we hand each one a pink rose when they come in. The night is filled with worship music, devotions, and prayer. I love seeing these young girls share their hearts with Jesus.
One thing we learned the hard way last year is to never plan an event like this during Lent! It hadn't even occurred to us, and we had so many lovely little desserts for the girls to eat (most of whom had given up sweets!)
It was such a lovely evening.
Invitations were sent out this week to all the girls in our church, and I can't wait for this special night!
If you're interested in doing something like this at your church, I have many resources I would be happy to pass on to you.
It's a blessing to be a blessing ♥
