Father’s Day Appreciation Dinner

  • Church of God in louisville, Father's Day Appreciation Dinner

Fathers work hard to support and take care of their families whether it is at home or on the job. To honor and thank hardworking dads in the community, the Church of God hosted a Father’s Day appreciation dinner. Members invited not only their dads but also friends, co-workers and neighbors.

The evening started with an array of refreshments followed by a delicious and comforting meal, which members served with bright smiles. After dinner, members put on a brief presentation acknowledging and thanking fathers for the role they play and the impact that they have on the lives of their children. Sons and daughters read heartfelt poems they wrote for their dads. But the highlight of the night was a poem a father read expressing how much he loves being the father of his 2-year-old daughter.

Throughout the evening, fathers spent quality time with their children. They laughed, talked and even played games including ping-pong and beanbag toss.

One guest visiting Kentucky from the West Coast was so stunned. It was his first time at the church and he couldn’t believe how much fun he could have in a church. The members’ kindness and hospitality moved him to continue visiting the church during his stay in Kentucky.

“Through today’s event, I’m truly moved, it made me realize even more the love and role of fathers. The fathers who came today are great examples,” commented a member.

At the end of the evening, guests expressed their thanks to the church members for the good time they had. They were happy to have shared the special day with the Church of God and looked forward to future visits.

    How lovely! It looks like such a beautiful location. What a great idea to host a dinner for Father’s Day. Sometimes our society can make such a big deal about Mother’s Day (not that there’s anything wrong with that lol) and it doesn’t show as much love to the dad’s out there. I’m glad the Church of God held such a beautiful event for Father’s Day. We love you too dads!

    The two most amazing days of the year are when we get to celebrate our fathers and mothers. This was such a touching event to share with my dad and I was also glad he came. After the delicious dinner we had, my dad was really happy to play ping pong. He loves that sport! All in all it was a beautiful day spent with family at the Church of God.

    Fathers work so hard for their families without any recognition. It’s so good to see the Church of God having an event to really appreciate what Fathers do and bring families together!

    Thanks to the Church of God I was able to truly appreciate my dad more. I always get so caught up with life that I often neglect to call my dad. I was truly able to understand my dad’s sacrifice for me and how much I love him. I definitely made more efforts to speak with my dad after this beautiful event.

    The Church of God is truly such an amazing place to be and this was far most, if not equally the most, moving event and it truly touches my heart how much our spiritual Fathet and Mother had/is sacrificing for us.

    This was a very touching experience, as we often don’t take the time to appreciate our loved ones. Thanks to the Church of God I found the courage to express my appreciation to my dad, which is usually just silently understood. Another amazing event from this amazing church.
