Fun For The Whole Family Hour

Sail Into God’s Great Love With Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour

Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX – Group Publishing has set sail on a brand new expedition, where families will embark on an adventure to discover God’s love. In their very first Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour event, Group partners with Walden Media and 20th Century Fox, using scenes from the new Narnia movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour combines eye-opening discussions and upbeat music with the thrilling adventure of Narnia in an experience that connects all ages with each other and with God.  
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour is one action-packed hour where participants will discuss never-before-seen clips from the movie, listen to music, watch a skit, and grow in their faith. Participants will divide into family groups of no more than five. Each group is given their own expedition pack, which contains an interactive expedition map that uses water to reveal hidden messages, guiding each family to look at God’s transforming love in a whole new way. It also includes a CD with all the music so families can continue their adventure at home. Clips from the Narnia movie will help them explore how God’s love changes us. Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour makes reaching families easier than ever.
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour is flexible, easy to implement, and a great value. Everything you need to get started is in the Leader Pack, which includes:
·         Leader Guide
·         DVD containing a promotional video and clips from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 
·         CD containing clip art, publicity helps, drama script, and PowerPoint song lyrics slides
·         Family Expedition Pack (sample)
·         Publicity Poster (sample)
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour came out of a desire to let families share in simple, life-changing experiences like the ones kids explore at Group’s vacation Bible school. “In Group’s many years of ministry experience, we’ve seen families connect in unique ways during VBS,” according to Group’s Shannon Velasquez. “Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour brings families together for laughter, drama, and music, creating a starting point for family faith-building conversations.” 
Group has a reputation of being hands-on in growing children’s relationships with Christ, and this new product does not disappoint. Nothing fires you up like seeing kids “get it” as you teach…and seeing the children you serve grow closer to God.  This practical, time-saving resource makes that happen.

I think this program looks really cool! I didn't get a chance to see it in motion but I have passed it on to our family life director at church. It looks like a fun way of including every age group into a church event. I love that it uses Narnia clips. I found the leaderpack very interesting and easy to understand. I think it would be a relatively easy event for a church to have.

Thanks so much to Group Publishing for sending me a review copy of this program.
